Re: missing uncoupling device on CIL brass box car?

I pulled out the Challenger box and you are correct that the model has no uncoupling devices were included.  It is a very fine model even with that omission.

Subject: [STMFC] missing uncoupling device on CIL brass box car?



Hello friends,

a week ago I was about to purchase a brass box car from CIL like this one:

but then I saw there is no coupler lift bar or any other uncoupling device usually found on every piece of rolling stock. It would be odd if CIL forgot such a major part of a model, but seemingly they did. Does anyone have a link to a photo where one can see what the real thing looked like?

Many thanks - and btw all the best for 2018 to all of you! :-)
