The cheek plates are the cast iron plates that bolt to the wooden sills and anchor the draft gear to the body. A modern equalivent term would be a draft gear stop.


A good reference for older terms would be the 1906 Car Builders Dictionary, the originals are big $$$ followed by the reprints which after 40 years are going for big $$$. "Railway Car Construction" by Voss is an excellent reference as is "the Work of the Railway Carman" both reprinted and available from Orange Empire's bookstore.
