I had not phrased my previous question correctly 'magnet couplers'  for Thomas cars.  Replies were so-so So I attempted and accomplished putting on #58 couplers on Thomas cars.  =remove present couplers saw and/file flat protrusion and a simple replacement with the kaydee couplers.  Correct height - all works fine.  Now I will be able to accomplish rearranging of Thomas Friends for different short runs.  [i am running on a prototypical HO track that many Brass Locomotives are running on. - [causing some consternation at times with the senior members}]

Reason I am doing this is:  I belong to a 'Train Club' and we are open every sunday and a number of children come with their parents.  If I am about - I bring out Thomas and his friends just to run up and down the track by the glass protected isle where the young ones can just see track level.  They seem to enjoy and the parents always give me a thumbs up.  Makes for an enjoyable day for the small ones.
