Sorry it took so long to get back.  Been away for a couple weeks

As for the Kadee uncouplers. Other than removing some ties so the unit fits have you made any other adjustments?
 Thanks

I use delayed action on EZ track all the time.  But no uncoupling ramp.  I disengage  the couplers with a pointed tool (in my case, a kabob skewer), re engage them with the tool in the delayed position, and then push the car into the location. 

It's all very brakeman like and fun for me.  I have all manual switches too, most with working switchstands, so it's all pretty  prototypical for my branch line setting, lots of hands-on crew attention.  If you have a large urban terminal, or a big mainline junction of some kind, that might be another story.

Even though EZ-Track is Code 100 rail, you should be able to use the Kadee #322 Delayed Uncoupler for Code 83 track without having to modify the ties.

If at first you don't succeed, throw it in the spare parts box.
