MILW rib-side undebody equipment layout
Apparently these cars had a unique underbody AB brake system setup
with all the major components located on one side. Does anyone have a
diagram for these cars to confirm this or can someone elaborate on the
placement of piping etc?
thanks in advance

I've built a couple of the Sunshine Models kits. The
instructions/data sheet contains underframe
information. IIRC, you are correct about the major
components all being on the same side of the center
sill. I can scan it and e-mail it to you. I should
be able to get to it over the weekend.

model photos of the underbody (thanks to Ted Schnepf, who has a photo of a
car lying on its side, thanks to a blunder by a switching crew).

I have photos of the underframe on models at my web site, which is below. The prototype car on its side was being scrapped. I do have another photo of a derailment in the 1950's also showing the underbody.
