  • March 28, 2020
  • 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
  • Fanno Creek Brew Pub; 12562 Main St; Tigard, OR 97223

Discussion of coupler type, compatibility, and Body-Mount vs Truck-Mount.  Coupler conversion and coupler height adjustment. Coupler grease. How to determine the right Kadee coupler for your engine or rolling stock.  Common coupler problems and how to remedy.  Tips for coupler conversions for engines and long passenger cars. Good sources for couplers.

Bring a car (box car is best) to convert couplers to either body-mount or truck-mount Kadee couplers.  Bring your own couplers or purchase pair at clinic at cost. (Contact presenter two weeks in advance if you need to purchase a pair of couplers.)  Perform the conversion at the clinic as times permits.  Clinic will provide tools, but bring a hobby knife, Dremel tool or saw, and some sandpaper if you have them (so you won't have to wait for tools!).
