Thanks.

I wish companies, in their ads or product description, would list whether or not their models had body-mounted couplers.

Agreed. And MBK isnt helping much here by posting a hodegpodge of what appears to be "Artwork", old photos, and HO photos.  :facepalm:

In this case, they are not body mount.  And @GM50 4164 has shared elsewhere that it doesn't appear the easiest to convert to body mount on first look

There is no bracing under the slopes for anything to be mounted to, although I'm sure something could be made to fit it, Trainworx adaptors...

Some great lease company road names in this release.  I really don't see how they do it.  State Line Indiana Elevator?  8 of each rd number in stock at MBK.  If the other 6-7 wholesalers have that many combined, IM is making only 16-48 of each one. 

I looked on Google to see where that elevator was, and it is small, and has an odd track plan.  How many of us would model that?
