Coupler style for 1970 era SP engines

Rob Briney
 

I model the 70s with The SP and ATSF in The Central Valley of California. I was wondering what style of coupler would be correct for that time period for my Engines.
Thanks in advance for any help I can get.

No easy answer Rob. Best practice is to find period pictures and identify by using the NMRA coupler file in this groups files section. Remember that freight and passenger locos could use different couplers.
