Re: [SergentEng] Re: Kato coupler conversions

The older Kato locomotives did not have coupler boxes. There was a horn hook coupler held on with a plastic push in pin.

A Kadee box will fit in the slot, and that should be able to hold a Sergent compatible shank coupler.

I on the other hand am trying to figure out how to make that awful looking opening and buffer on the Kato pilots look better.
