  • positionOnCarEnd: This is the basic position of the coupler with regard to the car ends. Possible values are:
  • both The railway wagon has two couplers. One of them is placed on the front side of the railway wagon. Other one is placed on the rear side of the railway wagon.
  • front The railway wagon has one coupler placed on the front side.
  • rearThe railway wagon has one coupler placed on the rear side.
  • couplingHeight: This is the coupler height (horizontal axis) above rail surface given in metres.
  • pullingForce: This is maximum force in Newton the coupler can withstand when pulling the vehicle.
  • pushingForce: This is maximum force in Newton the coupler can withstand when pushing the vehicle.
