For all those modelers who have asked for a set of just the hanger brackets found in our cut bar sets, we have a fret of the brackets
that contains all three syles of the brackets and there are 12 each of the brackets, enough to do eighteen cars.
These coupler bars are made out of Phosphorus Bronze and made to represent the trombone looking cut bars
usually found on cusioned underframe cars.
This photo is of a PRR X56 boxcar model built by Tom Haag showing one of the coupler bars installed.

This next coupler bar is designed to represent what I call a sliding style coupler bar. Here is a
prototype photo of one. Two
configurations of this couper bars are available. One of the frets contain three sets and the other has twelve sets. One set
will do one car.
Yet another style of coupler cut levers. We are labeling these as Stanray
style since once the handle is bent to shape, they can be used to represent
any number of cut levers manufactured by Stanray. Packages contain
enough parts to do 3, 6 or 12 cars. A new style of hanger is included with
these cut bars.
These coupler cut bars are designed to replace the plastic cut bar assemblies found on the Red Caboose R70-15 reefer models.
They are designed to be added to either a undecorated or a ready to run model. Each package contains enough parts to do three cars.
Looking for 'standard' type wire cut bars?
Tangent Scale Models currently has two variations available and plans to add more as time allows. We hope you
like ours but if they also have what you need, please support them too!
