Thank you for the additional information about these car series. It
certainly adds to what I've been able to determine on my own. I'll
continue to dig for more, but unless information surfaces to the
contrary, I'll apply black paint once I have the running board
modifications complete on my model.
Your mention of equipment diagrams leads to another question. Do they
mention the type of power hand brakes on the cars? The photo angle and
method of reproduction in the Cyc make it difficult for me to say with
certainty what type of hand brake wheel it is on RI 558. It looks like
it may be an Ajax, but... it doesn't hurt to ask. Those details are
where more photos would be a big help.
Thanks again, I appreciate your help.
