      "I am rebuilding list 4.0 and will send it to you. Mostly Bachman & LGB rolling stock.

      Except for the Colorado Mining Company 0-4-0 saddle tank engine, and 2 Hartford highside gon kits there is no 1:20.3 stuff left."

    • I had 6 (now 8).  But I do use three at a time.


      But they are different generations and prone to their own quirks.  Plus, one doesn't work and is for parts, and another in the "In train" R/C version.


      Two of the working early generation versions are prone to voltage drift when a train parks in a "reverse situation" where it sits beyond the diodes for a while; one worse than the other.  Also in one of these early versions, the voltage steps are much greater and it is hard to hone in on the proper speed, especially when the engine passes the diodes and the voltmeter swings up.


      These are no longer made and hopefully, I'll be able to replace some of the quirkier ones with later versions, and have a couple spares.


      BTW, I have a 10-amp RCS base station and tranmitter that I would sell for $60.  These have the small transmitter (smaller than a pack of cigarettes), with better range than the Train Engineers and run on a 16-24 volt A/C supply.  It has an internal rectifier, so I assume it would also run on dc.

    •    I always get Kadees no matter what brand my cars or engines are.

         But I just posted a question on Kadee installation in the Power listing. Sometimes there is a challenge to replacing Kadees!

    • Dan, I agree with you, and KaDee is the standard for my railroad. But some folks went with other brands. So for those folks who chose Aristocraft couplers, and now have their fleet (or most of it) outfitted with Aristo, its hard to justify $6, $7, or more, per car, to redo their whole fleet. Back when I was on LSOL, I "donated" my non KaDees to members who chose a different standard. I knew who to send my Bachmann couplers to, and who to send my Aristo couplers to. With experience, knowledge and the proper adjustments/modifications, most couplers can be made to perform properly.

    • Why change out existing knuckles?  Kadees mate with many mfg couplers.  Just use them to replace hook and loops.

      At $8.00 a pair, myself I would go with Kadees.  Charles Ro has many at less than $7 a pair.

      Yea, but some folks went with the Aristo couplers. Its hard to justify the cost of changing out the couplers on a whole fleet of cars.


      Hang in there Nico, someone out there needs them.
