No. It is a standard K combined cylinder-reservoir, but with a diagram with a separate air tank on the other side of sill (the stick diagram furnished by F&C shows the tank to be good sized, about the same as the combined AB reservoir. There are no other details, either by diagram or in text.

As mentioned the car is a boom car (for a derrick). It is a NYC prototype that was cobbled together from pieces of an ancient caboose plunked down into an ancient c. wwI fish-belly gondola. It is a pretty interesting model, generally, but it sure lacks the completeness of instructions one is used to expect from Sunshine or Westerfield.

SGLs surmise that added air capacity for air tools might be a legitimate reason for more air tank capacity has the ring of plausibility.
