Reply to "Shelf Couplers"

Shelf couplers are a accessory whose time is overdue, and yes there is a waiting market. I like the brass couplers in the link, but would also like to see them blackened or "rusted" in some manner. Before someone says, "get out the airbrush" (and while there's nothing wrong with that), I'd like to point out that the beauty of drop in parts is they just drop in, no muss, no fuss, easy to use. In an age where time is one of the most precious commodities we have, quick easy conversion makes a product very attractive. I, myself, would need 10 pairs for my existing tank cars, plus another 3 for the cars I anticipate to purchase in 2018, along with spares, and 10 or more pairs for when, most assuredly, someone produces the 34000 gallon LPG Tank Car. Tight lock couplers would be appropriate on Amtrak cars and any modernized and/or rebuilt streamlined passenger cars. If Atlas is able to crank out the Trinity Pd Covered Hopper (ala BLMA), there is another car in need of shelf couplers. Change comes slowly to O Scale, but change it must to satisfy the growing demand for prototype appearance and detail. Like Swafford keeps saying, "ready to buy when you supply!" Just my two cents.
