Running boards for Ann Arbor 1400-1409 PS-1 boxcars

Mark Heiden

Hello everyone,

Yesterday I was looking at an equipment diagram for Ann Arbor 40ft PS-
1 boxcars, series 1400-1409. The diagram did not list the type of
running boards, but did list the brake step as being US Gypsum
pattern. The PS-1 production list on the Steam Era Freight cars site
did not list the type of running boards either. Does anyone know for
certain if these cars had US Gypsum running boards? If not, is it a
safe bet to use the type of brake step as an indicator?
