    Bought a pair of Athearn 85' flats; one for piggyback trailers and one for containers.

    Anybody got a picture of how the hitch plate on the piggyback one is assembled? I assume that it is supposed to fold down flat, just can't tell from the grainy Athearn drawing how it goes together - i.e. which way it's supposed to fold.

    Hold on cbuttre835. I forgot myself because I had a bunch of them also but had to get rid of them because there was no room to run them. I looked around and din't find anything so I contacted Athearn and I'm waiting on a response now. If I had a copy of the directions I could tell you. Just hang tight and let me see what they have to say.
