PostSubject: more coupling advice needed!   Sat Oct 11, 2008 2:11 pm

similar subject to Clives but i thought it best to keep them seperate. My two circles of LGB track arrived this morning so i was at last able to testrun some trains. My rolling stock is a mixture of LGB,scratchbuilt and a make unkown 54mm gauge that i have regauged. Individually all ran well but when i tried to connect the LGB to the regauged i found that there was a difference of 4mm in height between the two hooks and bars but enough to cause them to become unattached.
Problem is what can I do about it? It could be just a simple thing to cut the coupling and superglue it a fraction higher but once I've done that i wont get another chance if its wrong. Any ideas?

For the couplings Mikey, can you post a picture of the problem?
It's best to keep the LGB as it is and alter the rest I would say.

I'm doing some hooks for Clive.

Let me know if you want set to try out and I will send you a pair.

yes please Carl, but you won't want one of my figures in exchange (they all look like aliens!).
