Hi!

On page 99 in the latest issue of the Hornby Magazine there is an article about replacing the large couplings on Hornby wagons with the smaller variety. What I can't understand is why it was done by cutting, filing and glueing the coupling when the Hornby X9072 coupling is a direct replacement that just drops into place with a click!


Best Wishes,
Tom

Probably not for the earlier early metal type of coupling which was screwed into place.

Hi!

That isn't the case in this particular conversion. The wagon in question has the modern snap-in-place type coupler box! Why make such an easy job so complicated?
