Re: ATSF Sk-O Stock Car Air Reservoir Position
Thanks, Bill. I have Sandifer’s book, and other stock cars had transverse air reservoirs, so I surmised that the Sk-O would also have them. Different roads handled KC to AB brake system conversions differently. The CB&Q mounted all three components on the same side of the center sill on SM-16/18 conversion, and the air reservoir was in line with the center sill. It’s always best to ask, rather than speculate.

Nelson they were mounted in a travers orientation.
Very few Santa Fe cars had the reservoir mounted parallel to the center sill. Most were cars with a Durea underframe. I believe that the Bx38 war emergency car had the parallel mounting. I'm not at home right now and can't verify that.

I’m building the Westerfield Sk-O kit with AB brakes, and I’d like to know if the air reservoir was mounted in line or transversely. I can’t tell for sure from the right side photo of ATSF 68093.
