The RailKing One Gauge Freight Cars let you bring
increased realism to your One Gauge layout.
Constructed from sturdy Polycaronate plastic, One
Gauge Freight Cars are created from quality
components and have been designed for years of
operation. RailKing® One Gauge Freight Cars come
fully assembled, decorated and ready for use right out of
the box. They are the perfect addition to any One
Gauge railroad layout.

Freight Cars
COUPLER SET UP
This RailKing One-Gauge Freight Car can be equipped with three different types of
G-Gauge couplers - an MTH knuckle coupler, an MTH hook & loop coupler or a
1/32nd (#1 Scale) Kadee coupler. For your convenience, the MTH knuckle couplers,
hook & loop couplers and 2 spacers for Kadee coupler mounting have been included
with your Freight Car. The Kadee type must be the 1/32nd (#1 Scale) size and can be
purchased from a Kadee coupler retailer. Both the standard knuckle and the hook and
loop coupler designs attach to the truck. The Kadee coupler mounts directly onto the
Freight Car’s frame.
Knuckle Coupler
All MTH Freight Cars come with the knuckle coupler attached at 1/32nd height
(which closely lines up with LGB couplers). The height of the coupler can be adjusted
to mate up with the freight cars, passenger cars and locomotives of other
manufacturers (USA, Lionel etc.).
To lower the coupler you will need to:
1. Remove the truck mounting screw.
2. Remove the coupler screw.
3. Put the coupler on the bottom of the shank and screw it on.
4. Then cut the armature pin at the score line.
5. Reassemble in reverse order.

Hook and Loop Coupler
You can configure the Hook and Loop coupler 2 different ways. You can apply
the Hook and Loop on both sides of the car (you will need two manual
uncouplers on the track to uncouple) or a Hook and Loop on one side and just
the Loop on the other side (you will need 1 manual uncoupler on the track to
uncouple). To install the Hook and Loop coupler, follow the same installation
steps for the knuckle coupler and screw the Hook and Loop coupler onto the
bottom of the shank. To equip just the Loop, you will need to remove the pin,
the Hook and the spring before screwing the coupler to the shank. To remove
the pin you will need to use a standard screw driver to push the larger side of
the locking pin in a back and downward motion.

5. Aline the spacer provided and the Kadee coupler with the Kadee coupler
mounts on the base.
6. Screw the coupler to the frame of the car.

Service & Warranty Information
How to Get Service Under the Terms of the Limited One-Year
Warranty
When you suspect an item is defective, please check the operator's manual for standard
operation and trouble-shooting techniques that may correct the problem. Additional
information may be found on the M.T.H. Website. Should you still require service,
follow the instructions below to obtain warranty service.
First, e-mail, write, call or fax a M.T.H. Authorized Service Center (ASC) in your area to obtain Repair
Authorization. You can find the list of ASCs on the M.T.H. Website, www.mth-railking.com. Authorized
Service Centers are required to make warranty repairs on items sold only from that store; all other repairs may-or may not be done at the store's own discretion. If you did not purchase the item directly from the ASC, you
will need to select a National Authorized Service Center (NASC). These centers are compensated by M.T.H. to
perform warranty service for any customer whose repair qualifies for warranty service. A list of NASC retailers
can be located on the M.T.H. Website or by calling 1-888-640-3700. Should the warranty no longer apply, you
may choose either an ASC or NASC retailer to service your M.T.H. Product. A reasonable service fee will be
charged.
CAUTION: Make sure the product is packed in its original factory packaging including its foam and plastic
wrapping material to prevent damage to the merchandise. There is no need to return the entire set if only one of
the components is in need of repair unless otherwise instructed by the Service Center. The shipment must be
prepaid and we recommend that it be insured. A cover letter including your name, address, daytime phone
number, e-mail address (if available), Return Authorization number (if required by the service center, a copy
of your sales receipt and a full description of the problem must be included to facilitate the repairs. Please
include the description regardless of whether you discussed the problem with a service technician when
contacting the Service Center for your Return Authorization.
Please make sure you have followed the instructions carefully before returning any merchandise for service.
Authorized M.T.H. Service Centers are independently owned and operated and are not agents or representatives
of M.T.H. Electric Trains. M.T.H. assumes no responsibility, financial or otherwise, for material left in their
possession, or work done, by privately owned M.T.H. Authorized Service Centers.
If you need assistance at any time email MTH Service at service@mth-railking.com, or call 410 381-2580.
Limited One-Year Warranty
All M.T.H. products purchased from an Authorized M.T.H. Train Merchant are covered by this warranty.
See our website at www.mth-railking.com or call 1-888-640-3700 to identify an Authorized M.T.H. Train Merchant near you.
M.T.H. products are warrantied for one year from the date of purchase against defects in material or workmanship, excluding
wear items such as light bulbs, pick-up rollers, batteries, smoke unit wicks, and traction tires. We will repair or replace (at our
option) the defective part without charge for the parts or labor, if the item is returned to an M.T.H. Authorized Service Center
(ASC) or M.T.H. National Authorized Service Center (NASC) within one year of the original date of purchase. This warranty
does not cover damages caused by improper care, handling, or use. Transportation costs incurred by the customer are not
covered under this warranty.
Items sent for repair must be accompanied by a return authorization number, a description of the problem, and a copy of the
original sales receipt from an Authorized M.T.H. Train Merchant, which gives the date of purchase. If you are sending this
product to an Authorized Service Center, contact that Center for their return authorization.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have other rights that vary from state to state. Specific questions
regarding the warranty may be forwarded to M.T.H. directly.
