What type of drawbar is that on the tender? I am trying to turn a Scout Tender into a Tender for the 258, so I need prewar trucks with a drawbar and probably a box coupler or lactch coupler. It will pull some prewar passenger cars with latch couplers. Can the box couplers connect to the latch couplers?

Thanks
Scott

I think the latch couplers will work with the box type.

You can see the tender drawbar in this thread here ... pretty much the same drawbar on the different variations of the 1689 tender ...

Not the prewar trucks there, too.

And yes ... prewar latch will connect to prewar box, as Rogruth noted.

Cheers,

TJ

I think that's the nicest compliment I've ever received! I've reached "you suck" status!
