Since you model the late 1953, it's permissible to build the car with KC brakes, especially since the the history suggests they may not have ever been converted to AB brakes, and no photos have surfaced. KC brakes weren't baned from interchange until the late 1953 (September I think), so in my view it's better to have the car on the layout with KC brakes than on the workbench with no brakes.

Knowing Ted, if a photo existed of a car with AB Brakes existed, he would have included it. Come to think about it, doesn't he say he doubts they ever were equipped with AB Brakes in the history? OTOH, with the deep reinforcement under the offset doors, it would difficult to see what type of brakes it had, would it not?
