A QUESTION ABOUT COUPLERS ...

I'm looking for photos and/or schematics of an "adaptor coupler," a gizmo used for mating, say, a standard knuckle to a Tomlinson. E.g., back in the 1930s, the South Shore used this to move the Indiana Railroad lightweights from the Pullman plant to the Northern Indiana (from which they moved under their own power down to Indiana Railroad home rails).
 
As well, when the CA&E  -- a Tomlinson-equipped line for passenger cars -- was abandoned, several of their cars destined for museums were moved  
by a diesel locomotive sporting an adaptor coupler.
 
Any and all information will be appreciated ....

Have you asked anyone at IRM that question?

Thanks, a good idea. Since the IRM site doesn't list individual e-mail addresses  for staff, do you know anyone I could e-mail with my question?
 
Any and all help will be appreciated.
