The #119 SE Shelf Coupler features shelves that actually work and can be easily modified to look like the type "E" or "SBE" bottom shelf coupler passenger car coupler. Can be mounted in the supplied #242 Gearboxes or directly into most manufacturer's molded-on gearboxes.

During the 1970's the Type “E” coupler with a bottom shelf was developed as the Type “SBE” and the Type “SE” top and bottom shelf came later on. Both the Type “SF” and “SE” couplers were standard for tank cars in 1975 then eventually became mandatory for hazardous material cars.
