Re: AB Air Reservoir Orientation Question
Gatwood, Elden J SAD
The PRR had at least two groups of cars in classes X29 and X31 with transversely-mounted reservoirs.
I don’t have the complete details, but know some car numbers that had them, and have furnished some details to folks on the PRR list and Society.
If you are interested, I can expand.

I attached Gene Green’s paper to my last email to the resinfreight car builders io Group, so you can get it there or search the web for “Freight Car Underbody Detail.pdf”. Search “Modeling AB Brakes on Freight Cars.pdf” for Ted’s paper, which also covers KC brakes.
These papers should be in the files of the RealSTMC, resinfreightcarbuilders, plasticfreightcarbuilders, and proto-layouts io groups. If they aren’t, somebody needs to upload them.
As I said before, I leave transverse mounted air reservoirs to modelers of the PRR, ATSF, and perhaps other roads.
Santa Fe also had many cars with perpendicular air reservoirs.
