Ah the joy of working in a smaller scale. I was replacing the couplers on our Bowser N5 Pennsy caboose and removed the trucks to have better access to the coupler “pockets”. Changed the couplers to a more prototypical version and went to placed the trucks on the body. Wait….where did the pins go. I have no idea, they must have rolled off my desk. The desk is clean now after looking for the pins. So, sent an e-mail to Bowser. Will see if we get a response. Until then, the caboose sits in its box, new couplers…no trucks.
The lesson behind this experience? Put the little parts into a container.
