My prob with “hard” gussets was that they don’t nestle down. I had best luck with very thin embossed sheet, or decals with the black edges and rivets/bolts highlighted. Just my experience.
Still hoping I can find a better B end pic for brakes.

Thanks! Speaking of doorway gussets, I wonder if those would make a good etched part, if their design was reasonably consistent over time and/or between roads.

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).
