Re: Square Wire for Vertical Brake Staffs

Rod Miller

When building several SP flat cars, I noticed the brake
staff was square. I presume that was to allow vertical movement
of the staff, e.g., lowered to below the deck surface, but
retain effectiveness of the wheel. See Thompson's SP Freight
Cars Vol 3. p 252, top photo.
