   This is the type of pilot I think I would like on the freight motor.

 It looks as if it would be easy to make in either styreen or even brass.

 Also note the coupler, I would like to make a working self centering radial coupler bar for use with magnetic couplers, I'm unsure if I will use Kadee's or these from Mchenry. I know these are for tank cars however I have seen several traction cars and locomotives that had the oversize knuckle on the coupler.
