I'm getting ready to build some log cars and want to use the 'link and pin' couplers. I saw that Ozark has some. They appear to have a 'pin', or stud, that would somehow attach to the car. I don't know if there's some other piece that's required, or other couplers, or methods of attachment. I plan to use a wooden beam to attach them to. Any ideas? Bill

Thanks a lot for the info and pics! Guess I need to revisit Ozark's site, I only saw one version. The type you show in the top pic are the style shown in the drawings I got (thanks to Bob, here in the Forum!) for the Michigan-California skeleton car. My Climax is for the M-C Lumber Co. also. That car used a main beam made of 3 pieces with the center timber's end recessed. So the first type appears more scale. I'll check out the reference you mention too!

Thanks, Jack, for the 'up close' pic of the Bachmann. That's very close to the style of the car I want to build. The one part that I can't quite figure out is the truck, beam, mounting scheme. Is that standard/ original equipment for the Bachmann car? Bill

What is the width for the box/receiver you're showing-might glue up some wood while I'm figuring what detail stuff I need. I did find those particular couplers in the Ozark site. Shipping cost so much any more it doesn't make sense to order one thing.
