I see I also needed to look at the next page in the diagram book. Series 6500 to 6599 built in the war year of 1942 had wood running boards. Series 6600 to 7099 were built with steel running boards. The diagram is silent as to the type of steel running board.
I found the metal running board discussion interesting. This morning I pulled out my Milwaukee car diagram book from the 1950's and it indicates as build these cars had wood running boards. The metal boards must have be applied as a latter repair.
