        Be sure to check out the Universal and Miner brake
wheels before you apply cement. If I were a betting man,
I would go with Al Westerfield's use of the Ajax with one
caution; what year are you modeling??

Subject: [STMFC] Brake wheel/housing for PRR GLCA

Hello group,

Can anyone tell me what type of brake wheel/housing was used on the PRR GLCA hopper? The Westerfield kit uses Ajax, the new F&C kit uses an Equipco wheel (like the Kadee version with 6 spokes), and the prototype photos included with the F&C kit show something similar to an Equipco wheel but apparently with more than 6 spokes.

Thanks in advance.
