Rob, these should answer your questions, though I suspect you have a large (six foot) diamond on your model, which is what you probably want. The small diamond was replaced with larger one quite quickly after these cars were built.
If you (and of you) are seeking prototype photos of freight equipment, the Fallen Flags site owned by George Elwood should be a first resort.

Its confusing as the kit contains a narrow set of black ladders (i.e. for ends) and two sets of brown ladders – narrow and wide - (for the sides). Also, the wide ladders are 7 rung instead of 8, so using wide would result in rungs on the side ladders not lining up with those on the end ladders. I couldn’t find a prototype photo of this series.
We’ve always used the wider ladders on the sides and the narrower ones on the ends.
