Re: Vertical brake "housings" on Mather cars

The budget minded Mather Company dod in fact use bent metal rods to form their SILL STEPS. The only stirrups I know of in transportation are on horse saddles.

The Klasing handbrake was geared and that is the mechanism you are seeing. There have been a few articles about the Mather cars in the modeling press thru the years.
