There should be two sets of AB brakes on this car, one on each end. The
rodding couldn't be bent around
the depressed part of the frame. This means there should also be two brake
stands.
The main reason for the two brake systems is the large car capacity.
Rodding could indeed be run under the depressed deck if need be.
