    Just a note: I run 100 car trains on a NON-NTrak layout. :D

    In fact, our railroad can take 13 100 car trains UP style (parked nose to tail) :eek:

    My running group is the LTD, Long Trains Division...

    Yahoo! Snagged 5 more 1159 packs on EBay Buy-itNow! :) Yes! That should complete my conversions, for now...

    Another coupler for the "A" unit rear and the "B" units is the Kato coupler that was made for their Bethgons. It's very similar to a short-shank Unimate and is easier to get into the truck frame. Since it's Kato....there's a downside.....The packs of couplers are hard to find since they only ran one batch and, at last check, are "out-of-stock" on their website.
