Aha! The "Air Brake" stenciling was part of an MCB recommendation of 1896 that also called out MCB couplers and draft gear type. It would seem that the HD was the first N&W car to have air brakes and MCB couplers...


Was the MCB coupler the N&W's first application of Janney couplers, or were there earlier versions of the "knuckle couplers" or "automatic coupler" in use theretofore on the N&W?
