I've lost one of the coupler boxes from a heavyweight dining car. What do I replace it with?

They are equipped with 1016 couplers from the factory. 1015s will work if you have a broad enough radius.

Rick, you will want to use 1016s to run on the BMRC layout. Ask me how I know... :facepalm:

Pretty sure the diner uses 1016s as standard, but I would have to check mine to verify.
