Re: NYC X29

The New York Central drawing Q-53566 details the General Arrangement for AB Brake Equipment on the lot 504-B boxcars. The drawing is available from the NYCSHS. 

The photo of the brake equipment on the NYC car in the S-Scale Resource magazine that Doug references is different than the drawing. The air reservoir is located at the edge of the car body and the brake cylinder is on the other side of the main frame beams. 

The photo in the society’s online photo archive of the lot 504-b is of the composite builder’s photo shown in the S-Scale Resource magazine.
