Construction details NYC Lot 773-B boxcars

Mark Heiden

Hello everyone,

Does anyone know what sort of brakewheels and running boards were used
on New York Central Lot 773-B boxcars, series 168000-168999? They
were built by Despatch Shops in 1949. I found a side-on photo of one
car in an issue of Model Railroading that appears to show a Miner
handbrake housing. Naturally, I've forgotten the car number. Any help
would be appreciated.
