I know some of the folks on this thread are waiting for Lionel to replace the failed coupler with a new working design, but I'm thinking it will still be a non-articulated design and some of the derailing problems might still be present.
I want my two reefers to have working couplers and, more importantly, to run as well as the earlier reefers did, so I think I will just replace the Vietnamese trucks with earlier ones. But I need to know which trucks are a good replacement.
If anyone has replaced these and found the replacement trucks to work well, I'd like to hear which ones worked for you. I see some roller bearing trucks (P/N 6-14251) on eBay which look like they might work well, but I don't want to invest $25-$30 on something which might work.
Any ideas on a good replacement?
