What kind of Brake Setup is this?

I'm building a TH&B 36' boxcar and these cars have a particular kind of brake gear I haven't seen before. K brakes were being used on the underframe and this strange brakewheel brace on the B end. Interestingly, there was no brake wheel platform to speak of. Brakewheel shaft also looks square.

Anyone know the name of this setup?
