Re: LaBelle Cars

On the prototype D&RGW narrow gauge passenger cars, the couplers were unusually long, converted Miller Hook shanks, which anchored to the body, not the platform.   The exception was the RPO cars without platforms, which used freight car couplers and draft gear.

I suspect that the prototype design is at least part of the issue.
