Pacific Electric Boxcar Brakes

Hello folks-
I'm currently scratchbuilding a Pacific Electric boxcar based on these examples:

Only piece of information I'm missing concerns the brakes. Anyone have a picture showing the arrangement of rods and levers? I did a search here, and someone did post pictures but the links have expired. Also, were the cars equipped with regular KC brakes or split K? Finally, when were they converted to AB brakes as it appears in the pictures? I'm modeling 1941 and I want to know which type is appropriate.

Thanks!
C.I.H.
