I've had standard low top gondolas used scrap service with one regular E and one double shelf E. Why? Sometimes it's whatever is on hand. Looks funky. 

I meant to add in my last post that there are definitely some unusual coupler examples out there that would make for interesting modeling. This standard CSX 50' box car I caught had double shelf type E couplers on both ends:

The other cars in this class are all equipped with lower shelf type Es.
