PIKO’s G Scale GE 25 Ton comes with the hook and loop style couplers by default, but PIKO promises an “easy installation” of Kadee couplers.
In this gallery, I’ll show how to replace the hook and loop couplers with Kadee #909 AAR Type E couplers.
First action is to remove the existing hook and loop coupler.
Remove this piece as well.
Ready for Kadee.
Prepare the #909’s.
From the bag of accessories that comes with the GE 25, you’ll need the Kadee adapter pieces, and the two longer screws.
Add the adapter piece…
… and screw the Kadee coupler into place.
Checking it against the Kadee coupler height gauge – all good.
PIKO promised it would be easy, it definitely is!
