Pulled the trigger on those B&O cement cars - just perfect for a new industry. Thanks MTL!

Are the MTL 50' FMC boxes body mounted couplers now?   Is the ride height fixed?

I'm tempted by the B&O cement cars.  I don't need them for any operation I am contemplating, but I have to admit that I find modified boxcars hard to pass up.  The info I could find indicates that over 20 of them survived into the 1950s.

Interesting cars - some proto photos of the M-24a class buried in this O scale writeup: https://oscalekings.org/WP/ed-bommer-bo-class-m-24a-cement-hopper-boxcar/
