4MT and Kadee

1222 Views 9 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Mike Parkes
I note that mention has been made that the Bachmann 4MT does not suit Kadees very well.

I need to add Kadees to mine.

Has anyone a solution, especially for the rear coupling as this is far too high?

Thank you for your reply.

"We are talking std 4mt tank" Yes

I will try your suggestion.

I have been told, by other railway modellers, that for Londoners, Clerkenwell Screws supply just about any size/type.

Has anyone any idea on how to get a magnet on the front bogie. If I put it underneath it reactes with a kadee uncoupling magnet to throw the bogie sideways. If I try to mount it on top of the bogie it fouls the frame.

Magnet is 12 x 6 x 3mm

I should have said I want to fix a magnet, to trip a reed switch, on the front bogie.

I have got the Kadees now fixed to the front and rear.
