I pulled out Richard Hendrickson's article on the PSC cars. I have seen UTLX cars of this era that had what looks like a spring sticking out perpendicular from the draft gear. Richard mentions this in the article and refers to it as Cardwell draft gear.As usual, RIchard is right. And those springs were on both sides. You can see this in several Cyc entries over the years.
