So I am wondering what peoples thoughts/experience is with the smaller (1:32) Kadee couplers. I have one car I got from someone that had them on it. All my other Kadees are the larger (1:22.5) couplers. The smaller one I have seems to work just fine and with only a few exceptions mated up nicely to the larger ones.
The reason for asking is with my St Maries River Railroad project which is all going to be 1:29 (thanks to USA Trains) I am thinking of putting the smaller ones on all that modern dino burner era stuff. The others just look goofy to me, they seem way to big. I will put them at proper height (same height as the 1:22.5 size) so I can use them interchangeably. That’s the plan/idea anyway. Is there something I am missing or should know before I start buying couplers?
Also are the shanks the same, in other words are the couplers interchangeable with the boxes or on the few pieces of stock that I already have the larger couplers on, will I need to put a differnt box on them to fit the smaller coupler?
Thanks in advance.
