Where can I get these couplings from?


Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I am not sure what these couplings are called, all I know is that they are used mainly on European HO scale models and most recently Hornby Mk3 coaches and Bachmann DMUs. I have absolutely no idea what they're called and haven't found them for sale at any of my usual haunts. I'm looking for a supplier for these either in The UK or a bulk supplier in China.

The look similar to the Marklin 72060 type available from Gaugemaster

However, these Evemodel couplers look more similar to your picture (I've never heard of Evemodel before, but found them from a search for 'H0 NEM Hook and Loop').

For some reason Bachmann call them DMU couplings despite them being suitable for any stock.  There's a straight version and a cranked version.  Kernow have them in stock (though only 4 packs of straight).

 Probably because the only UK prototype stock they supply (Afair) that used them, are the 1st gen DMU’s.

Let's see if the pendants can come up with some extraineous comments.

 

I assume you mean 'pedants' rather than 'pendants' and 'extraneous' rather than 'extraineous'.  Yes, I know I'm being pedantic - I just can't help it when people make these comments.  :D

Thanks, the Marklin ones are nice and long, need these as the locos that will be getting them have some rather long cow catchers. I think I saw Evemodel ones on AliExpress

Thanks, they do look a bit short and the straight ones don't look like the are NEM compatible.

How many do you want ?

 

I've got loads of them - send me a PM if you are interested.

I'll PM you later today.

Australians call them, "Dunny Seats".

 

I can't think why!  :scratchhead:

 

There are several variants differing mainly in operating height, uncoupling method (ramp or magnetic), and whether they allow delayed uncoupling.
