2-footer coupler "shank" info/drawings ?
- Does anyone have any accurate info on the coupler shanks used on the 2-footer RR's freight and passenger cars?
There are at least two shanks on the Maine 2-footers, and these seem to account for most of the SR&RL and later lived 2-footers. The Edaville probably has mostly these two.
One shank has two-rivets attaching the yoke to the butt, and the other version uses three-rivets and (it might also have a a slightly longer butt surface).
There is a three-rivet version on one of the surviving WW&F passenger cars. I know, I can go up to the WW&F, but that will have to wait until next Spring, and this shank info is needed sooner if possible.
