I have an ACELLA set it came with 2 Locos 1 powered & 1 non-powered & the Locos are NOT the HHP Locos does anyone know the history on this set JUST pulled this car out of 1 of my train storage bins under my Layout.... I Remember I got This as an extra car I got from a Train Shop over 2 hours away that closed up I went there cause of the good deal's & it was the only car they had so I picked it up as an extra car BOX is a little damaged but the CAR is in perfect shape...

The drawbars on the cars and locos can be replaced with knuckle couplers with NEM type shanks, such as the 78035 E-Z Mate II NEM Center Shank Med Coupler. Or the Kadee #18 Med, #19 Long, #20 Extra Long NEM shank couplers. Unless you have 48" radius, or larger, curves, the Kadee #17 Short NEM coupler will put the cars too close together. And I wouldn't really recommend the E-Z Mate or Kadee medium length couplers unless you have at least 24" radius curves.

Thanks for the tip's & suggestions... The Acella Train Set run's nicely on my layout I did find I must use the outer track on my layout I have a 2 track main where I can run 2 trains different directions... I found out with the Acella on my inside track the passenger cars body's just swing out just a little too far on my turns & clip the other train's rolling stock causing a derailment. I tried to slow down the train's to in prove the distance but both trains would meet up again... So I switched the Acella to the outside track Problem Solved...  

The Draw Bar couplers on my Acella don't seem to be a issue since the Train will be coupled up most of the time I have a Tunnel siding track ( Just for storage it's a powered DEAD END Track section Good for about 20 extra rolling stock cars ) & that's pretty much where my Acella will be parked when not in use... I will be checking the Bachmann parts section for spare draw bars hopefully they are still available
