Re: Modeling Those WLE SS cars w/7-ft doors

I would think the crossbearers on these W&LE boxcars would be located at the base of the right door post on each side. The doors are offset so there is no straight path across to join each door post. 

The KC brake system would fit easier that way, too.

Anyone know where the main crossbearers were located? I can think of at least two possible locations ("wide" and "narrow", by analogy with door-and-a-half designs).
