Hi Guys & Gals,

Having initially plumped for D & G Couplings, which operate with electro magnets, I have now changed my mind and am going for the Micro-trains buck-eye typr of couplers. All of the references I can find only refer to normal static magnets as being used with the Micro-trains couplers but, having already purchased some (quite expensive) electro-magnets, I was wondering if these can be used with the Micro-trains couplers or not.

Look forward to receiving your advice.

No - kadee and microtrains use magnetic fields in a completely different way to D&G etc so you will need to use their correctly advertised magents for microtrains.

Expat,

I had some electromagnets i picked up in a lot and couldnt use as although i use microtrains couplings they were of no use ........ and so i placed them on ebay with a good starting price and was pleasently suprised at the price they brought so there is a demand out there for them, good luck in finding them a home.

upnick.
