Random Train Uncoupling A Problem

Will models N scale and writes:

“I am running N gauge T-Trak modules with 1930’s British outline rolling stock. I get frequent uncouplings – often at the joins of the modules and on turnouts/switches with my none-bogie rolling stock using Rapido couplers. Is there anyway to check/adjust the Rapido couplers to prevent this?”

  • Dale says:

    To start, check that the couplers are all at the same level. Next check that the track where the T-Trak modules meet are level. It is a difference in height alignment that is usually the culprit. Also, check that the, um..I don’t know the terminology..the part of the coupler that extends down toward the track, isn’t too long causing it to catch on turnout frogs.
