Both the screw and NEM variety. 5, For couplings that cannot be easily replaced (see point 3) another uncoupling solution is needed alongside the BK method. I use a 'magnet on a stick' method to lift the metal coupling hooks.

  • Couplings

    This method does require accuracy and precision, especially if you are coupling the Peco and Hornby coupling together. The couplings must be exactly the same height on every item of rolling stock. The angle of the hook must be correct and the magnet must sit perfectly flat across the sleepers or it will make contact with passing trains.

  • kadee's and Hornby couplers - Page 2 - Questions &

    2018-4-16u2002·u2002I have successfully replaced the TLC (tension lock couplings) on two rakes of MM mk2 coaches. The first rake was done with kadee and the second rake with Hornby R8220 close couplings between the coaches but a single kadee at each end of the rake for coupling to locos and better visual appearance. This works with fixed rake formations.
