Coupler conversion for Bachmann H16-44

Now, before we all make fun of the Pud for still loving his coffee grinder H 16-44's (they are closer to the CPR version than the Atlas and can pull the teeth out of your head) I need some TRW assistance on a MT coupler conversion. The MTL list says a 1015 is the correct conversion but I'm darned if I can figure out how one might get one in there.... anyone tried or has some wisdom??? I'll post some pics later if that will help...

As always, many thanks :D

Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Wow. Who knew? I've got two of these little devils, so far down the conversion list I haven't even thought of 'em in years. Got 'em for $25 each six years ago, brand new.

Thanks, Bryan.
