I do not believe the "brake-wheels" showing on the car sides actuate the brakes.  Note that the far car has a vertical brake staff in the typical end location.  The location of the "brake-wheels" gets me thinking they have something to do with adjusting the load supports.  I do wonder how things worked when the cars encountered a curve.  As in the full-train picture.
