Dennis & Schuyler,

The "Z" Bar designation is also listed in reference to dimensional information required of cars built with "Z" Bar side plates positioned with the bottom leg placed horizontally. A complete and comprehensive list of the various construction types and what dimensional data is required is included within the; "Key Pages For Standard Headings In Registration Pages", of the ORER. It is found within the Editorial Section following the railroad and private owner equipment entries.
