Microtrains 3-dome tank car body mount coupler

I was working on body-mounting couplers the other day, and was surprised to see that the new-ish Microtrains 3-dome tank car does NOT take the standard 1027 body-mount coupler.  I haven't yet figured out what fits (I was doing 1027s, so I just went on with that) - maybe the 1015?

Are folks aware of any other MT car (that isn't already a body-mount) that uses something other than the 1027?

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

I also decided to go with a 1015.
Don't know why Micro-Trains changed the underframe.
A 1027 would be better, but it is hard to get the second hole drilled properly without some kind of jig.
