Rail C1AF Striker Coupler Carrier
In standard freight car draft arrangements, a rectangularly shaped block of steel is interposed between the butt of the coupler shank and the front working-end of the draft gear. This block extends crosswise through the front end of the yoke gear pocket and is termed the front follower. The relative positions of the front follower and draft gear to the coupler butt are maintained due to the security of the yoke to the coupler shank by a connecting key, or pin.
