Remarks & Notes 
In over forty years of railfanning, I've seen a few strange things ... And this is the latest. The rear coupler on Iowa Interstate GP38-2 716 (ex-LLPX 2328, ex-UP 452, ex-UP 1952, ex-EMDX 817, ex-CR 8017, nee-PC 8017) has a homemade knuckle, created from a length of rectangular tubing. I assume that it was meant for some duty other than coupling to another coupler. Photo taken on railroad property with permission and while wearing required safety gear (PPE).

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
Would you believe it?
