Hi. I have an old C50 by Kato that I bought ay a LHS near 30 years ago in Japan. Over time I lost the coupler between the loco and tender. Anyone know if there is a replacement part availablein the US?

Hello Mr VentureForth,

 

So sorry you have lost the coupler of your C50.

 

Such a part will be difficult to find, even in Japan.

 

I suggest you contact Kato Models USA: http://www.katousa.com/

 

I wish you good luck.

you won`t find that part except on another of the same model.

 

my advice is to find a hook ring coupler / power ring coupler from tomix and modifiy it to fit on that loco.

looks like you may be able to fashion one yourself with a bit of styrene strip and small screws.
