@John Korling. My 1055 has the front coupler with the "enclosed " pilot. I've never seen one without it. Good to see you posting again!
That's interesting, I've never seen an original 1055 FA that came with a front coupler, ever. All the ones I've seen throughout the years, including the original set my uncle got as a kid, all have solid front pilots with no couplers. Are you sure you're not mixing that one up with the Lionel 210 Texas Special FAs?
It's good to be back, thanks for the return welcome!
