Re: B&O N25B covered hoppers

I have a B&O diagram for the N-25b class covered hoppers numbered 630104-630177 of 1936.
It shows the class having a vertical brake wheel and box, with a notation they had rack operated hopper doors.
Lightweight 43,200 lbs., load limit 125,800 lbs., 1,238 cu. ft. capacity, built by B&O at Cumberland.
The posted photo of B&O 630120 suggests this if you look carefully at the left end of the running board.

A vertical brake staff and horizontal brake wheel were on class N-24a cars, numbers 630025-630074 built in 1933.
They are also noted as being equipped with sliding hopper doors.
Lightweight 45,500lbs, capacity 100,000 lbs. at 1,716 cu. ft.
