i purchased a 6-16360 maxi stack(NW containers) today with a truck and knuckle coupler and a common truck attached with the articulated female coupler”. I only purchased one because I already had a new, recently purchased 1928530 maxi stack (2019 edition, CSX) at home.
Main question: do single sale maxi stacks come with the pieces necessary to make a unit? Not counting the “common truck”
I had assumed that all maxi stack cars, upon removing the end piece and truck with knuckle coupler also had an articulated male or female coupler “built into” the existing strucrude. Aka- follow the directions in terms of removing the end section and truck w/ knuckle coupler, and a male or female articulated coupler would be something you could take off that end piece and attach to the body in order to make a unit with a common coupler. I guess I was expecting too much Abra-kadabra.
my CSX maxi stack’s underneath, in the round plastic dish are all the small screws that attach the platforms above the couplers to the bottom, as well as the truck screw of the CSX brake wheel truck as I removed that. Also, it would appear the previous owner’s male truck broke as I found that in the common truck when I took the screw out
The only thing I didn’t do is I took the little screw out before removing truck from the brakewheel end. It doesn’t look like I have a male articulating coupler from the CSX maxi stack to attach to the new one.
any help would be super appreciated !
