And don't forget that a lot of flatcars used vertical staffs if they needed a clear deck.

I know I have photos of cars in service as late as 1973 with vertical staff brakes, long after our Steam Freight Car time frame.

Sorry if this topic has been discussed previously. Can anyone provide the date when vertical brake staffs on boxcars were outlawed and how long they lasted after that date?
I don't know if they were ever outlawed as such, but they were certainly still permissible and in use in 1960, the outer limit of topics on this list.
