Hello, I have 2 Bachmann 2-8-0's and 2 Kato Mikado locos that I would like to MU (lashup) but they all have the small, non-working coupler in the pilot. Is anyone doing what I want to do and if so, how? I checked the MT web site and they don't list a conversion for these locos. I have used tender to tender, not very prototypical, with the MT couplers mating but that still leaves the tiny non-working coupler which won't couple to MT couplers (or anything else). I have placed a loco at the rear of the train and used it to "push" without any coupler mating, but this doesn't allow for backing up and probably under some circumstances, separation. I have several grades up to and including a 3.8 - 4.0 % and a helper loco will be a requirement unless I am content to have 3 or maybe 4 car trains. Diesels not a problem as they all have working MT couplers front and rear.
