From the local train shop I have 2 athearn ready to roll boxcars with plastic couplers not working. The cars couplers do not line up with the walthers cars, uncouple on inclines, switches and derail.
I read posts about replacing the couplers, but about line up with the other cars? What is amazing is the working athearn cars cost a small $2.00 more. Maybe I should open the box and look at every detail at the store? Now out $40.00 for non working freight cars? Also the working cars have tiny springs in the couplers.
