    Hi All,

    Has anyone mounted Kadee couplers on the Bachman Spectrum 2-8-0? Is there any problems in doing so?

    I wonder if the new whisker type will work?

    I am considering purchasing the 2-8-0 but would like to be assured that I can convert it to Kadee or McHenry.

    Thanks for any comments.

    The Kadee whiskers are perfect drop-in replacements for Bachmann's EZMates. I'm 99% sure it should work. :thumb:

    Good luck!

    I put a set of #5's on my 2-8-0.

    The Bachman already comes with EZ-Mate couplers, which are basically the same thing as Kadees.
