CB&Q box car questions


Clark Propst
 

I recently picked up two RTR CB&Q box cars. One Intermountain 32000 series and one Branchline Trains 17000 series. I don’t have a lot of info on these cars and would like to make them as correct as I can.
 
The BLT car may be good, except for the trucks that ‘might’ be ASF Ride Control A-3s?
 
Looks like the IM car needs a wood running board, 8 rung ladders and possible P2K trucks?
 
If these assumptions are correct, I would like to know what hand brakes would be appropriate.
 
Thanks,
