I think they look ok, just need some velcro or 2 sided tape to keep them in place. Neat item to post, I especially like the original store price tag. $7.95 is the original catalog price, interesting Strawbridge & Clothier as a full service department store would mark it non returnable without a sales discount.
Mine is not a sealed 781 but the track locks were in the box when I bought it. The bag contains 16 locks, but the bag is stamped in black ink #26. So, who knows. They do work with the abutments, the tab on top of the pieces not only keep the pieces in line when stacked, but fit between the two ties at the connection which allows the clip to be installed the same way as with the trestles. Nice 620, I have some 3 spring linkers and always look for more when I can. Just to up-date the track locks. Reading an older Greenberg guide it lists 26 track locks in the bag. After looking at the bag I have , it does look like a 6 instead of a 0. I'll have to add 10 to the bag.
