Also the chain on most applications consists of three round rungs with an elongated rung on each end.

Thank you for the great info! What did you use for the rod that the brake chain “slider” rides on while connected to the chain?  Brass strip? Size? It connects the brake cylinder to the rigging via the chain.

I hope I am explaining it well, the sunshine instructions had a picture of this assembly, supposedly unique to the sawtooth cars.
