QUOTE (http://dccuncoupling.com/)Cars are priced at $49.95 for single-ended dccUncoupling, $69.95 for double-ended dccUncoupling, plus shipping and handling; less if you provide an Athearn car from our list of compatible rolling stock.
A bit of an expensive reality!


It will be a very long time before this technology is both unobtrusive and cheap...quite possibly we'll all be using holographically projected models and layouts before then...

Based on my personal experience, the Krois system is superb for HO or LGB stock ( Only these 2 sizes available)

Better the loco does the uncoupling rather than the wagon methinks


This is a close up of the Krois system on the loco.. the coupling plugs into the NEM pocket !
The little brass button under the coupling tells you its Krois, its actually the electromagnet.



The loco also creeps towards or away from the wagon its coupling /uncoupling... can't see wagon doing that

I think this is a great piece of kit to be used on the first freight car of a rake. I most certainly am going to see if I can get one for my On30 layout.
