Reply to "American Models Six Wheel Heavyweight Passenger Trucks"

Francine,

I changed most of my Flyer style couplers to the scale sized ones.  Since I run passenger trains as a unit, I don't care if the couplers uncouple or not.  I've been able to bend the Delrin scale sized couplers quite a bit to correct any sag and align them better.   The Flyer ones can also be bent along the arm to raise them.  I've done it without breaking them.   But then I also have a small bag with all sorts of AM couplers.  American Models also has a few hints in their site(at least on their old site) that allows better performance.  

Dont be too afraid of breaking the arm.  The plastic is tough.   Just try a little at a time.
