Re: Rapido Reefer and Sergent Couplers
Sergents will work if you remove the small flat part inside the #58 knuckle. They will uncouple with this treatment. Have hopes of going sergent.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Ed & others,
I thought that I heard that Sargent couplers will couple with scale Kadee couplers such as #58, etc, which are what I have been using.

Subject: [STMFC] Rapido Reefer and Sergent Couplers
Thank you for posting the photos of Rapido's new Reefer.
Was this car a prototype car of any railroad ? Rapido did
a go job the detail looks great. I would like to see
manufactors do the srirrups a little thinner. I know we
can always file them down, as I do.
Just an added note....I have purchased some Sergent Engineering
couplers and have put them on a couple of cars, man what
a differace they make. They will go on any model contest cars
I do. They operated with out a flaw. For someone staring out
I would recomend them. They will not interface with KD.
Again thanks for the posting
