Magnetic couplers for Airfix Mk2d coaches

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have a set of Airfix Mk2d coaches which I have resprayed into the NIR Gatwick coaches. I know that they are not 100% correct but still look remind me of seeing them sitting in Lisburn sidings.  One thig I'd like to do is use magnetic couplers with these, if possible. Has anyone had experience of attaching magnetic couplers to these?

Any idea where I could source them?

Hunt Magnetic Couplings ELITE **BUCKEYE** - Close Coupling Clip Couplings for Airfix Mk2 Coaches - OO Gauge (westhillwagonworks.com)

Is what you are after, the black plate on top of coupling lifts off it coupling will not pull past peg inside, having just looked at a bogie in a box of bits of a part started rake.  Used couplings in N and are very good. Many have bought more and firm has a large physical presence as   interweb  shop. 

hope that helps
