Reply to "Continuing Saga of Lionel's poor new truck design"

My issues with these trucks include the weak couplers, they pop open all the time, I will have to try the fix I saw above to stretch the spring slightly. I also have an issue with the thumbtacks, I have found the coupler arms will droop because the screw loosened up or was loose when assembled and the thumbtack then ride really close to the center rail and in few cases rest on it. I had a **** of a time tracking down a short that I finally tracked back to the thumbtack on one car. Now that I know what to look for I can keep an eye on them.
