The car sports a hand brake - 31-7758-B (if memory serves) or
31-7758-C - designed and built by ACF which hand brake has not, to my
knowledge, been modeled in any scale. It is probably not surprising
that ACF used this hand brake or a related variation on many of its
tank cars after World War Two.

Perhaps Ed Hawkins can add to or correct the information above.
Unfortunately, drawing 31-7758 was not included in the collection
donated by ACF to the Museum of Transportation. Drawing numbers close
to this number have a date of January 1945.
