These B units had an overhang on the coupler end. There were also FTSB or Short B units; these were about 4' shorter, all missing the overhang. They were delivered in drawbarred A-SB-A sets (exception - the four A-B-B-A sets to the Southern)...no couplers on the B units. Rock Island, DL&W, GN, MT&StL and Southern were the buyers of the FTSB. Some of the roads reconfigured their sets; the DL&W made up A-SB-SB-A sets with all drawbarred. I suspect the GN did the same at some point.
