    They're probably "Prototype specific" parts. If you are modeling a specific road, these parts help you build the model to that roads options that came with the loco. A couple of manufacturers are including these parts with new locos for the "rivet counter" modeler.
    If you want to build a proto specific loco is a great palce to find a pic of your loco.
    If your not palnning on using the parts..Save them...Come in handy for scratchbashing buildings or other rolling stock.
