Re: [SergentEng] Pilot couplers
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I have used, in the past, Kadee 714s with my brass locos, so I wasn't concerned. With the Sergents, I was planning, on the brass locos, to use the plastic Accumate boxes, so that should not pose a problem either. I was not sure about using the metal coupler in the diecast Blackstone engines, and if there would be a problem with double-heading.
Thanks for the quick response.

I have mounted several of the front pilot “E” type couplers (ES1P87) to brass engines. No problems with double heading. I just don’t couple front to front steam engines and have never seen a narrow gauge prototype coupled that way either. The rear couplers on my equipment are all insulated anyway.
