I notice in the description of these smaller engines that it says works best with 11.25 radius curve. I have 11 inch radius atlas snap track. Will there be a problem?  Also will an e z mate coupler work well with an accumate  coupler?  Thanks. Paul

Thanks guys for your answers. It was exactly what I was looking for.  So 50 70 and 100 ton trucks would be according to the load and size of the car?

Thanks guys very useful info. I want to use the curved switch as a yard lead wherei have limited space. I am using atlas snap track and hope to have a fairly easy time making  connection with regular rail joiners. The insulfrog sounds like it would be easier forme to use  thanks. Paul

Who manufactures curved switches that would work well with Atlas code 80 snap track?  I want to use a curved switch to extend a yard lead track to put more cars in my yard.  Thanks Paul

If I want to convert older Bachmann or Atlas cars from the 70's and 80's to knuckle couplers, how would I know if the replacements are 40, 50, 70, or 100 ton roller bearing trucks?  I want to make this as easy as possible without just changing the couplers to micro-trains.  Also do couplers from different manufactures work together well? Thanks for your help.  Paul

The picture for the locomotive in the online store shows it comes with rapido couplers.  I was wondering if it actually does and will it run well on Atlas code 80 snap track. Thanks Paul
10  Discussion Boards / N / Several questions on: June 30, 2015, 08:14:31 PM
1.  Lets say I purchase a new loco that is equipped with dcc.  But I run trains just using dc.  Will the new loco work ?

2.  Will all different manufacturers rolling stock run properly on Atlas code 80 snap-track?

3.  Does anyone know what Micro-Train couplers would I need to convert mostly older Bachmann and Atlas cars from the late 70's and 80's?

Thanks, Paul

What is the best way to unballast a section of track that I want to reconfigure without damaging the track sections.  I used Elmers glue with a 50/ 50 mix with water.  Thanks  Paul
12  Discussion Boards / N / Knuckle Couplers on: January 13, 2014, 05:43:55 PM
It seems that different manufacturers call there knuckle couplers by different names but my question is are they all compatible?  I don't want to purchase cars from different companies and have an issue.  Thanks Paul.
