I can’t find the correspondence on whose, but they are definitely some kind of rectangular grid.
Apex or Blawknox, I don’t know.
Given Dec (IIRC) 1953 build, not surprising short-taper IDEs, high tack boards, OH diag panel roof. Note doorway gussets PRR was adding in this timeframe, plus 10” (IIRC) channel side sill.
Don’t know all the brake details (yet).
