Re: NYC USRA DESIGN STEEL BOXCARS
AB Valves. Just the dimensions that make up the boxy shapes would probably do as I’m pretty sure I’m just going to plumb the pipes right thru the sides w/o worrying about the various fitting faces.
I’m mid-way thru doing a CAD model of a triple valve for a KC brake and I gotta say I wish I hadn’t started.
I think Dennis is right… I gotta go crawl under some old cars.

Has anyone a dimensioned drawing of a triple valve they can share? Any era. All sides. Even a couple of photos of drawings will help.
Dave, are you looking for drawings of triple valves or AB valves? Many model railroaders erroneously say "triple valve" (only used with K brakes, I believe) when they're actually talking about an "AB" valve.
