Andy, those are “Carmer” levers, not ‘carmen’ levers.  Carmer was a specific design and a particular manufacturer.

Clark,

I believe it is called a "cut lever". I always hear of one variety common
on the PRR in the 30s as a "Carmen cut lever".

Does the lever (top or bottom mount) that allows/opens the coupler knuckle
have a real railroad engineering type name?
