I am working on the NMRA car achievement program. I am scratch building an ACF 3500 cylindrical hopper using plans I received with an Ambroid kit. Can anyone advise how the braking system was set up from the A end to the B end. The plans I have only show the A end and the location of the air reservoir and does not show how the system got to the B end. Any help would be appreciated.

The only instructions I have from Ambroid show making up the brake system and mounting it on the "B" end. Nothing showing the brake lines to other end of car. Last picture shows a single long air line from "B" end to "A" end of car.

I had the directions and the diagram but I didn't have the last drawing showing what happened underneath. Thanks for the info.
