To be clear, the wheels noted by Ray are horizontal (vertical shaft.)  There is no evidence that these cars ever got vertical wheel brake gear.

Per the Rock's diagram book sheet for these cars (dated 8/8/1949), 141000-142499 had Universal brake wheels, and 142500-142999 had Ureco.

These cars were all built with vertical shaft brakewheel, according to the Sunshine datasheet and early photos.  Were any ever converted to geared brake with vertical wheel?
