Re: Sharon Couplers

At least in today's world, that would be confusing. "Drawbar connected" is used to denote individual cars connected with a solid bar rather than couplers. Hence a drawbar is very different from a coupler. I can't think of any pre-1960 examples of this except for a locomotive and tender, but perhaps there were some.

Speaking of ‘terms’ my railroad friend always call the couple a “Drawbar”.
