The recent interesting thread on scale couplers and boxes and their
applications motivated me to do some measurements and experimentation
today on two new-in-box Fifth Avenue Car Shops Milwaukee ribside
double door boxcar kits, MILW 6600, and MILW 7037. Both cars had the
standard moulded industry-standard draft gear boxes designed for drop
in Kadee-type couplers, essentially identical to that found with
almost all other contemporary styrene and urethane kits currently,
and historically on the market.


Wow Denny, thanks for the great summary. Your observations reflect mine
concerning the ProtoAccumate coupler and the Kadee #78. Thanks for sharing
all of your details.
