About those Links and Pins
« on: June 17, 2024, 12:23:35 PM »
I live in the SF Bay Area; over in Fremont, CA is the Railroad at Ardenwood run by the Society for the Preservation of Carter Brothers Railroad Resources. Until recently, the line was pulled by horses. But they use link and pin couplers to operate this very careful and slow line. I have watched them couple and uncouple the cars. I believe it may be the only place in the country that uses this kind of equipment on the cars from that era. They have just restored their NWP 6101 back to its link and pin period from the later 1930 era. Ted Miles Carter Brothers Society Life Member
