Tim O'Connor asked:
"did these cars have Duryea underframes? or just very curious looking
draft gear?"

Curious looking draft gear, but no Duryea underframe.  This car lacks the deep underframe crossmembers and unique brake component mounting of a Duryea cushion underframe.  The linked spreadsheet does NOT identify this series as being equipped with Duryea underframes:
