Johannes, you are correct that their omission on the model was very odd and not noted at the time of their import. Those locomotive/passenger car importer guys may have been too busy to notice!

No I am definitely not sure. I used the dicionary to find an English word for "unterschlagen", maybe is "conceal" or "keep quiet about" better for the context? I apologize for such awful problems. I am constantly trying to get better in both modeling and English speaking.
embezzle? Are you sure that's the word you want to use?

thanks for mentioning this beautyful model. But by all its beauty and accuracy one shouldn't embezzle that CIL - for whatever reason - omitted the coupler lift bar and its brackets/ eyebolts (which would be easy to add, nonetheless).
(I am looking for such a model (mint condition or professionally weathered), btw.)
Challenger Imports brought in these cars in brass (Catalog #2408) using the data supplied by Bob Darwin of hyper detail brass locomotives in MR decades ago. A variety of lettering schemes were offered by Challenger.
