Hi guys....
am fairly new here and I live in Berlin Germany.....
But here is my question..
I bought 4 used ATLAS engines..the older ones with the couplers attached to the trucks.
But they are the RAPIDO style and I am trying to find a replacement knuckle coupler that can be installed in the same pocket.
so any help is highly appreciated.Also looking for a reliable source / Train Supply House. They have them here but US stuff is
either not available or only parts there of. And new engines etc are extremely expensive...like US manufacturers List Price.....
So any help is greatly appreciated.
Oh and I actually model in HOn2 1/2 but I use N Scale Engines and convert them.
here is a Arnold US engine now converted. I kept the original body..Hood Elements and built around it...it still needs some more detail.
I thank you all and have a great weekend
