Re: the brake wheel staff on this CCC&StL gon is too long

Charlie your answer would be plausible, except for two reasons:
1) The car has a fixed end.
2) The brake gear is mounted on the first corrugation of the end, not on the end beam.

The wheel can slide up and down the staff which in turn can be folded to rest on the end beam. You can see the articulated joint at the base.
I guess that the gondola is convertible for use as a flat which is the normal application for this device
