Jim, I think you misinterpreted the brake pipes penetrating the center sill. They aren’t connected to the brake levers. For fishbelly center sills, it’s common to terminate the pipes from the air reservoir to the AB valve at the center sill, rather than running them all the way through. You’re seeing an optical illusion. And yes, there is a pipe from the brake cylinder to the AB valve, how else could you actuate the piston?

Lester,
  If I'm not mistaken you've made errors in the under body details.  Look at the
piping/rods running to the left most pivot bar (correct name?).  I don't think there
would be a rod/pipe running to the cylinder - nor the one from the right pivot
bar to the triple valve.  Am I wrong?
