What you posted gives a good description of the cast cheek plates. There were two gentleman around Chama years ago who worked in the car shops. They explained why the oak draft timbers were spliced onto all the center sills which were fir. The needed to be oak to take the beating.

Attached are pictures of the cheek plates installed into the 06051(rail & tie car) The other picture compares the larger cheek plates for a double spring coupler already bolted to the draft timber being installed in 6755 and the single spring coupler cheek plate in the 06051. Also some of my field sketches when rebuilding the 06051 and 06092.
