Abstract (en)

A Type E railway freight car coupler having an expanded gathering range is achieved by attaching or forming an extension wing (30) extending diagonally outward from an outer end of the gathering arm (16) to thereby provide an extension to the angled gathering surface (18). The extension wing (30) can either be cast as one piece directly with the coupler, or cast separately and welded onto the coupler. <IMAGE>
