Wow, that's something else! Take a look where it broke... see the rust streaks? It was already cracked where it lost about 50% of the cross section. Perhaps they should start inspecting all their draft gears a little more closely!

That would be a bit tricky to inspect without disassembling the entire coupler.

Proof that "tight-lock" couplers do what they are supposed to do ... stay coupled.

Something seems wrong here, but I just don't know what it is. Nice find!

There is no way to inspect that area without completely disassemblying the coupler box.

The ratio of the sizes here I find amazing. One would think both ends would have to be the same size. The broken end could not possibly have the same strength. Learn sump'in new every day!
