The #118 SF Shelf Coupler features shelfs that actually work, and can be easily modified to look like the type "F" or "H" passenger car coupler. Can be mounted in the supplied #242 Gearboxes or directly into most manufacturer's molded-on gearboxes.
In the late 1960s the top and bottom shelf Type "SF" coupler was developed and standardized in 1970 for hazardous material tank cars. During this same time period the Type "E" coupler with a bottom shelf was developed as the Type "SBE" and the Type "SE" top and bottom shelf came later on. Both the Type "SF" and "SE" couplers were standard for tank cars in 1975 then eventually became mandatory for hazardous material cars. Kadee® #118 Type "SF" coupler is actually a scale size coupler that if compared to the smaller Type "E" scale couplers will seem way over scale but it's not.

It is not recommended to use a metal coupler directly on a metal surface or in a metal draft gearbox to avoid possible electrical crossover and shorting that may cause damage. Use the provided insulated gearbox or insulated #28 coupler.
