While I am sounding off on brake components I have one more question. I have an Intermountain model of a Santa Fe Ga-55 65 foot gondola. It is a ;pretty good model
as is but I notice one anomaly. The brake reservoir is mounted parallel to the center sill as opposed to the standard Santa Fe practice of mounting it perpendicular to the sill.
dI have a drawinfg from a 1950’s Model Railroader which also shows the Parallel mounting. I woulod like to verify if this is gthe correct application.
Thanks for any help:
