Bill,

Yes that is the trainline.

With repsect to the number of tubes, no, not exactly. The X31s (no subclass) and X31F had 4 tubes in the center of the car and 2 at each end. The X31C had 6 tubes in the center of the car, and 2 at each end. I modeled the difference 😉

The X 31s have six tubes located at the center of the cars.  Is that the trainline that snakes around
the tubes?  The line in the photo seems to be a wrapped pipe.

I ask because I have an. X 31 that I s finished save for the installation of the rubes.

Thanks Al,

In my research the last couple of days I came across a good picture of the cylinder installation in an PRR X31 and a diagram or the loader and cylinder.
