I have an 8 page bulletin from Yankee Clipper which includes requested drawings and over 30 photos.
According to the bulletin there were 3 phases of underframes : 1 for the experimental cars, 2 for CGW, C&O 7000 series, Erie, NKP and 3 for the rest (11 different railroads).
Phase 2 including the Erie cars has the 3 brake components between the cross bearers (i.e. mostly beneath the doors). There are builders photos of all 4-phase 2 cars showing the brake apparatus in the middle.
of the cars.
