||Inspired by the those used by the West
Side Lumber Company, these link and pin couplers are designed to
fit on a car designed to use Kadee® No. 26 couplers. These
couplers will take advantage of Kadee®’s standard box and spring
to steady them in operation and to keep the head centered on the
end of the car. The shanks have been thickened for a more scale
look, but are easily modified for tight fits. They’re even cast
in styrene so paint will stick!
(Note: If the draw head won’t centre in
the Kadee® box, turn it over. The polygonal part of the shank
that interacts with the Kadee® spring is not symmetrical and
will not centre properly if it is upside down relative to the
spring.) Link & Pin Couplers:
This parts set includes 2 link & pin
couplers (draw heads), 4 links, and 4 pins.
