Re: [SergentEng] Which couplers

Christopher Zurek

From about the mid 40's on Type H couplers were required on new passenger equipment. They were also used on new passenger locomotives such as  EMD F and E units and Alco PA's.

It appears that the SPD35's built in 1964 and 1965 had regular freight Type E couplers.

Starting in 1966 and to this day locomotives built for passenger service are equipped with Type F couplers.

the lower shelf makes me think they are type F.   Do passenger locos ever get H tight locks?
