I apologize if this post has already been done before (I haven't found any). Has anyone put scale couplers or wheels on the Lionel 89' autoracks? If so any tips/ suggestions?
there is a great post on the subject here on the forum. Do a search.
I did mine with the enclosed spacers, Kadee 746 couplers, added weight to the cars, and beefed up the end of the floor so it don't snap off...again.
Good advice, use the long shank kadees and be practical about the min radius you are running them on.JMO
Medium shank, car ends filled in. I cut the draft gear box sides off and file down the tab on the shank bottom to increase side swing and allow 072 operation. That's tight, though, but it works for me. Here's a short vehicle rain with some of these:
Thank y'all very much!
OK! I'll do it....
