Finally, Kadee #802 S-scale couplers with plugs in the centering springs were used to cut down on slack action in the trains. The Air Brake reservoir was turned crossways and all plastic piping replaced with wire after drilling holes for them. A brake slack adjuster plate was added. The undecorated car was painted with Scalecoat II S-2018 Boxcar Red. The lettering supplied was C-D-S S-1 which Ed transferred to decal paper and put on the usual way. A coat of Dullcote finished it leaving the trucks black. The final step Ed did was to add the destination cards on the door tack boards.
