I bought three passenger cars #660, 662, 663 and the couplers do not match up. Doesn't matter which way I turn the cars they are all off see photo. Could someone have replaced them on the wrong side of the truck? I intend to put knuckles on anyway but thought this was interesting.
Also what locomotive was normally paired with these cars or were they purchased separately? Perhaps that's why I got them so cheap?

They look fine to me. Here are three pictures. First is the same as yours prior to coupling; second, they are coupled; third with the couplers to the side so the pins are visible.

Three aluminum passenger cars were part of three cataloged sets. The 5008 and 5108W were pulled by a Santa Fe PA/PB set and included a dome car but no coach. The 5011 set was pulled by a 334DC Northern and included a coach but no dome car.
