Wow! Thank you all of the advise and encouragement. Believe me, it is very much appreciated.
In fact, each of you have raised my confidence about giving the task of assembly a try. Once I get the necessary kits and begin assembling these couplers I will report my experiences.
Some asked how many couplers I needed. Thanks for asking. The answer is around 130 pairs. This is about the total of pieces of equipment that I will eventual require to support the planned layout. Right now the immediate number is 64 pairs. I also have installed 20 pairs on that many assembled freight cars.
Also, regarding the notice of discontinuance of the assembled couplers that prompted my original question, I can fully understand Frank Sergent’s action. I have searched the group’s archives for his notice but somehow I missed finding it. Then again, I am not the best of searchers. I must have missed the original posting due to my schedule that has me working on a cruise ship for four months out of the year. One tends loose touch with what is going on around one when at sea.
Again, a big THANK YOU for each and every response. Also for the confidence raising advise and encouragement.
Cheers & Happy Modeling,
