Reply to "Fixed Pilot and Scale Coupler installed on FM Erie Built"

Most of the first generation PRR road diesels were initially fitted with coupler covers to minimize issues when colliding with vehicles.  Around the 1954/5 time frame  they began to be removed as the units were shopped.  I agree that the coupler covers on the FM diesels are particularly clunky looking.   That's a good looking railroad Steven Michael, you are very fortunate to have a true SPF for a Dad and mentor.
