Recently purchased all 6 sets of Lionel's America Freedom Train cars:
6-83111 - American Freedom Train 21" Passenger Car 4-Pack (Exhibit Cars 101, 102, 103; Power Car 111 with generator sounds)
6-83116 - American Freedom Train 21" Passenger Car 2-Pack (Exhibit cars 104 & 105)
6-83119 - American Freedom Train 21" StationSounds Exhibit Car (Sleeper Car 201)
6-83589 - American Freedom Train 2-Pack #1 (Exhibit Cars 106 & 107)
6-83592 - American Freedom Train 2-Pack #2 (Exhibit Cars 108 & 109)
6-84226 - American Freedom Train Add-On 2-Pack #4 (Exhibit Cars 100 & 110)
According to Lionel's website, all cars are 21" long and the minimum circle is O-54.
Some of the boxes came with no diaphragms, some with only 1, and some with 2 (one for each end?).
Anyone else purchase these cars and can tell me how many should have been placed in each box? I'm thinking at least one for each end of each car in the box.
I've looked on Lionel's support site and parts for these are not listed. There are parts listed for older passenger cars. Some are listed in the 6-390XX series; some in the 6-219XX series. Are any of these diaphragms compatible with the AFT cars? None of them are 21" or recommended circle of O-54.
I am going to contact Lionel and see if they can send me some, but looking for alternates in case Lionel won't send them.
