Re: Kadee #58 couplers...

Hi Jack,

My preferred uncoupling method, whether with a bamboo skewer or a sharp
pencil point, is to get slack on the couplers and use whichever tool I have
to pull the nearest gladhand off to the side. This works equally well with
no. 5s or no. 58s. And I usually prefer a pencil to a skewer, because the
pencil is also handy for writing and marking up switch lists. (Obviously I
do not clip the gladhands off, for this and other reasons.)

So long,

Andy
