C. C. these were</span></div><div><span style="word-spacing:normal;">applied fairly rapidly by the Grande and other U. S. railroads. &nbsp;If one has</span></div><div><span style="word-spacing:normal;">access to either the 1912 or 1916 Car Builders Dictionary a very detailed&nbsp;</span></div><div><span style="word-spacing:normal;">description of the Standards can be found. &nbsp;Safe to say that by 1915, these</span></div><div><span style="word-spacing:normal;">cars would have had sill steps and grab irons applied. &nbsp;As built, they did</span></div><div><span style="word-spacing:normal;">have the Schedule KC 1012 air brakes applied.</span></div><div><span style="word-spacing:normal;"><br></span></div><div><span style="word-spacing:normal;">Most of the specific history of the cars can actually be traced, though the</span></div><div><span style="word-spacing:normal;">Valuation Cards are long gone. &nbsp;The Colo. R.R.
