I posted this question on the 3 Rail O scale forum and for some reason it was deleted.

My REA  VL Baggage car only has one diaphragm. A response I received on the other forum stated that the baggage car is an NYC prototype and this car only had a diaphragm on one end. Maybe so, but it doesn’t look right to me especially on an REA baggage car. I haven’t examined my baggage car closely yet but hopefully both ends of the baggage car are the same and I can order a second diaphragm from Lionel.

Thanks guys for your responses on the 3 Rail   O Scale  forum.



Take care,

Richard Gonzales

Maybe the New York Central, in their wisdom, did NOT want a diaphragm catching on/banging against, the rear of a steam locomotive tender. Thus, no diaphragm on the "locomotive end" of that car.
