Walthers G85 flatcar

Alden G. McBee

Adding Sergent couplers to the new Walthers G85 flatcar is really easy. The trim piece at each end needs to be removed by lightly prying with a #17 blade toward each end, as they are lightly glued. There are 2 pegs that align it. Couplers drop in and are at the correct height. One end is may be slightly tight and need the coupler box lid filed slightly thinner. The trim piece may be a press fit or may need minimal glue when replacing it.
