Unimate N scale couplers...


While they are not a true operating coupler and should be reserved for service in consists that are not regularly broken up, they are an attractive, low cost, fairly easy to install alternative to those rather huge but faithful Rapido type couplers that have been around for over 40 years. Their short coming is that they have to be lifted over each other for coupling/uncoupling, making them impractical for regular switching of cars. For the money though, the improvement on looks is hard to beat, as evidenced by the pilots of these two Bachmann DD40AXs...
