Thank you @3rail @coach joe and @DG for the replies and direction- I ended up going to Lionel’s website and ordered black couplers- 2 male and 2 female. Even with all the 2 pack sets I haven’t seen any color that matches my CSX maxi stack
DG- those are very similar to the directions I saw online- but not completely. I think the directions I saw were dated 2002 and the other 2008. I like how the parts list is given. Thank you for showing me how it comes packaged, as well- confirms that I just need that male articulating connector I appreciate the help.
i guess what kinda ticks me off is I’m used to being able to do anything in the directions if it’s shown without having to get anything else unless it says “(insert name and part #sold separately)”. IMO it should really say that for solo maxi stacks. If you’re going in not knowing much and have 1 single maxi stack, after reading the directions you might want another and think you can combine them. I truthfully thought, possibly from misreading another post, that the connectors were built into the ends, and upon removing a truck I’d have access to the male coupler on the break wheel side And the females coupler on the other.
Again, thanks for the help guys.
