    Hi All,

    Can soneone tell me how you change couplers on loco's or does it depend on the loco. I have a Bachmann U36B and I brought a atlas flat car that doesn't have the ugly rapido couplers on it. I want to change all my rolling stock but the loco doesn't seam so easy.

    Thanks
    Craig

    Craig,

    First of all, Welcome to the Gauge.

    Secondly, you can change couplers on just about any loco. I don't know what scale you're talking about, but for us N guys, we can go to the Micro Train web site and look up the manufacturer and model and there is a chart there that tells you what coupler to order. I'm sure you can do likewise for HO as well.
