Richard I got one of each from Andy, and they have different ends. The K brake ends have no toe holes and a narrow end grab iron on the right side. This end matches the Sk-Q car, except the doors they supply are for the Sk-S.

The AB brake car has an end with two toe holes and a wide grab iron on the right side. This end matches the Sk-U class cars. The underframes are the same and simply show you where to drill the mounting holes for the AB brake parts.
Hope this clears this up.

Jon, AFAIK the bodies are all the same - at least, the pre-production
I just got word that some of these kits may have been shipped with
wrong body. As I ordered K brake I might have gotten AB bodies. How
tell or is it vary obvious. As you can probably tell my kits are
samples I got were all the same, and I've built models with both K and
AB brakes. The locations for the AB brake mountings are marked on the
inside of the floors but must be drilled out if you want the model with
AB brakes. For K brakes, you mount the cylinder/reservoir at the same
location where the AB cylinder goes and don't drill out the mounting
holes for the AB valve and separate reservoir.
