RE: The BNSF model.

Isn't the rotary coupler located at the painted end of these cars as seen in this picture:

The EXR model has it on the other end.  Am I missing something?


edit: Nevermind, I guess that isn't standard practice anymore (or on these cars).

Adding to what Robbman said, it is still standard practice, but you're confusing the painted "rotary coupler" end with the painted reporting mark panel.  That panel is always to the left, but watch the triangular portion of the sides for painted/unpainted ends.
