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.

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.

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
