I am looking for information on the type of brake wheel/gear box used on theGene, pictures right after WW II still show vertical-staff hand brakes (or, if you will, horizontal wheels). Clearly the steel sides were added without adding vertical-wheel hand brakes. Later some did get vertical wheels. I have two photos showing Ajax in the 1950s. How many, and which, others might have been used I can't say.
