Re: Flat car vertical brake wheel staff supports.

Correction the Tichy part in the picture is the #3005 K brake sprue.  I used this rather than the Tichy #3003 as that part is a single casting rather than a separate top guide and then the lower part where the staff ends and the chain to the brake cylinder starts. 

Exactrail has a very nice representation of the vertical brake wheel mechanism on their 1967 (too late to get it in steam era) 53' 6" GSC flat car. Unfortunately not available as a separate part. This is a photo from their website.
