Pardon My French

If someone were to ask me to come up with one word to describe Kadee coupler springs, that word would be #$$@#$%^@#$$#^$#$@#&%^%^^**$%^$#!!!!!

It took me two solid hours to install two couplers on my scratchbuilt flatcar.  There are two coupler springs lost somewhere in the basement carpeting, they flew away and landed who-knows-where.  The aggravation was worth it, however - the couplers are installed, perfectly aligned, and they work flawlessly.

To commemorate the success, I made a short little video of the first official run of the flatcar, being pulled by #506.
