Hi Folks...

This isn't directly Q related, though the photo was taken at the B&MR end of the Hot Springs, SD Union Depot.  It is the front end of Sioux City & Pacific 4-4-0 #9, Manchester of 1873.  What I'm interested in is the pilot drop coupler.  You can see it's a solid casting in the shape of a Janney or MCB coupler, and the 'knuckle' section is slotted and drilled for a link and pin.

I'm wondering if this is some kind of 'Patent' pilot?  The wooden 'cow catcher' section is bolted onto what looks like a metal pilot beam, with a recess in the center for the coupler shank to slide into when it's in the raised position.  Does anybody here have an idea?

Thanks, Mike
