Prototype Railroad Modeling Vol 2 pages 2-42 have a description of the AA single sheathed boxcars and a review of the dates the cars were changed to AB Brakes. If you are an AA modeler this book is a must have.

Charlie: photos on pp. 12-13 of Railway Prototype Cyclopedia Vol. 17 show three Ann Arbor cars. All are AB brake conversion. The earliest is dated 1946. None show vertical brake staffs. One appears to have a Miner power hand brake. Hope this helps. Bob Ellis.

I’m building a Westerfield USRA SS boxcar and will decal for an Ann Arbor car. The time period is post WW2. Did these have a vertical brake staff or Ajax style brake. Thanks
