There are some good "as-built" photos in Kaminski's "Magor Car Corporation" book...
Pages 145-147 show shiny steel piston rods. The photo on p145 is noted by Magor as "identical to SPMW 2900-2919"...
True, but all shiny rods shown are with the car body in the full dump position. NONE of the piston rods shown anywhere in the book are shiny in the normal position.
