FVM N Scale RD-4 VAPX Hoppers (Body-mounted couplers???)

Can anyone confirm if the VAPX run of Fox Valley N Scale RD-4s have body-mounted couplers?

Thanks,
Bill McBride

I think so.  It looks like they were released at the same time as the silver/black TXUX cars which were among the first with body mounted couplers.

Thanks, Doug. I thought they were in the first release and had scoured on-line for release notes but was hoping for some collaboration of what I HOPED was the case.

You might want to confirm....there MAY have been a prior release.  But if you check the numbers against the same release as the TXUX cars, THOSE p/n's should be body mounted.    Sorry I didn't think about there being a prior release.
