The one thing that holds an (American) train together, for as long as needed, with nearly undying faith to the task. The coupler.

Here we see one on the caboose at Cass, WV during Cass Railfan weekend 2011.

I'm guessing because it's an excursion/ historic train?

Very cool shot. I would call it a still life, but that somehow doesn't seem quite right.

Nice shot! A totally under appreciated part of railroading. The automatic knuckle coupler is a pretty interesting device. Extremely reliable, simple, and rugged. I'd hate to have to build trains the European way, looks so tedious and time consuming

Here's a question: If the Buckeye Coupler is used in North America, what is used elsewhere?
