Wow do we have a different opinion!
Actually based on information listed in more than one GN Freight Car Diagram book . . . Obviously I do not believe the caption is 'full of errors' and I would not classify my self as ignorant about the subject matter. I guess those pesky GN documents that I used for researching the book might be incorrect?
Diagram books often contain simplified information, and yes, sometimes contain errors, especially when a later diagram is prepared for an older car. I would never trust diagrams ALONE for this kind of information. Often it's prudent to look at OTHER pesky documents before reaching conclusions.
