Still, it has a droopy coupler. They should check to make sure its shimmed properly or the air hose might catch on a switch. ;-)

That's not from overloading, that's the result of a switching accident, such as a kicked car hitting a standing cut way too hard. note the left end truck is displaced a good ten feet under the body. The center sill simply failed in compression and bent.
