Hi  I would like to convert my 2-6-6-2 couplers to Kadees. Can anyone suggest a conversion or suitable replacement.

Thanks Peter

Just in case you have missed it Kadee have released a Large Scale coupler 916 to fit the Bachmann Shank. I also understand the Scale 1 is almost ready

Be interesting to see what conversion they suggest - my 2-6-6-2T is the only loco I'm currently running that is NOT Kadee equipped (even my live-steamers have Kadees mounted), been scratching my head a bit about exactly how to go about it.  Wink  Peter, if they do get back to you, please post their suggested conversion here.   Smiley    Tom

An update from Kadee.

'We are actually working on a coupler with a shank to mount onto the Bachmann arm and it may be finished in a couple of months.

With that long arm and the huge over hang It would be very challenging to mount a coupler box near the front, you'd have to run on extremely large radius curves because of the over hang causing the coupler to swing so far outward.

Thanks for posting that information from Kadee, Peter!  Cool Sounds like it will be worthwhile to be patient a bit. Wink. Tom
