Re: silver soldering steel to steel

Re: is anyone making these?

Precison Steel Car has them for 1.25 each.

Part number L-006. Look under this link http://www.precisionsteelcar.com/details_loco.html

Scroll down to "Other Parts".

Can't beat the price.

Re: Plastic couplers

I put one on my stock car. I use it for a propane car, so it is the first coupler behind the loco. I pull 8 cars, sometimes more. The coupler has never failed.

Quite an interesting batch of photos. I did notice the prop driven car had plates!
