Hello all

My guess is that Micro-Trains' patent has run out and Bachmann have planned to fit M-T / Kadee style couplings on their American stock. They are now adapting that for their British range.

My understanding is that the Rapido coupling is all but dead in the American market - if it is true that the M-T patent has run out then it may not be long before the Rapido coupling is phased out in Europe as well. Although with an NEM box both might survive, one for the serious market, the other for the toy market.
