I have several Big Hauler passenger cars from the mid-1990's which have not been used for many years.  I set up some track Saturday and found the knuckle couplers are releasing without any apparent reason.   The track is smooth and level.  Does anyone have any suggestions for tuning up these couplers?

Thank you

Hi Randy,

My favorite fix is to spray paint my Bachmann Couplers with either Rustoleum Primer or Krylon Primer.  Seems to give enough tooth to keep them from separating under load.  It also gives the couplers that nice rusty look.
