Thanks to all for the photos.
Good point about the running board brackets.
Of course I was focused on the somewhat unusual lateral support brackets. I think I might have to go with shim brass strips to get them to look right and have some structural strength.

That is an excellent photo John. It highlights the 3-piece running board supports found on so many boxcars. Here in 2020 we are still using big square blobs on our models for supports. I wish I had the metal-etch chops that Pierre Oliver has.-------------------
