A couple of days ago I received the K-Line milk can loading platform, I was watching on Ebay. Brand new in the box. It came with plastic milk cans. The K-Line milk car came with metal milk cans.
I hooked the loader up today and have been experimenting with how it operates. The cans seem to load okay, but I think only two or three cans can be loaded into the reefer. If any more are loaded they seem to tip over and consequently get caught when the attendant tries to push them out the door.
So far I have not detected any difference whether the cans are plastic or metal. In fact, the milk car handles Lionel non-magnetic cans nicely.
So my questions are these;
How many cans should be loaded into the car, by the loader ?
Does the milk car have a sensor that detects when a can is in the proper position to be unloaded ? I noticed that when I activate the milk car, I hear what I believe to be the conveyor running for quite awhile before the attendant pushes a can out the door. At other times he activates quickly.
Anything else would be helpful.
