General Maintenance Tips

Removable Coal Loads: All of our Bethgon Coalporter cars come with removable coal details. They can be popped out by pushing down on either end of the black coal piece.

Non-functional Couplers: Because of the nature of prototype Bethgon Coalporters (they will spend most of their operational lifetime permanently connected to their fellow cars) the knuckles on the Bethgon couplers are not fully operational. They are sprung to allow flex on uneven and curving track, and can be connected and separated by lifting the cars straight up off the track.
