Ihave a Y6 and a Y3 mallet on my work bench,
can any one tell me if you can go from the small
gage coupler , to the full sized coupler like is on
back of the tender, so that the front of the engine
will match the back of the tender, so he can double
head them.

When you purchased this locomotive there shuold be a O scale coupular in the box with it. If you do it is simple.

There is a small screw where the small or "scale" coupular is unscrew that and remove the small one. And the O gauge fixed coupular should slide right into that slot and screw it in.

Let us know how you did!
