    Hi from Germany!

    I've searched and searched but I didn't find anything ...

    I am looking for original looking couplings for N-scale models. They must not be able to work, just look as the big ones because I want to mount them to some american RR-models. My models are in a showcase, so I can use very short couplings.

    Can anyone help me and send me photos by e-mail? May be with shipping to Germany, too?

    Thanks
    Regards
    Uwe

    uwe,
    i recommend micro-trains z-couplers... MT #905 (assembled, body mount)
    (i don't recommend the #903 which is the same in kit form...unless you are very good with very small parts, but still once those springs go flying...)

    aargh!
    MT has changed their numbers...
    i think you can still find the 905's, but there is a new number for it.
    if i can find the new number, i'll post.

    Thanks for all your answers, and: i hadn't seen www.us-modellbahnen.de but it seems to be the right one for me, because of the links to many dealers in germany where I can get US-train-parts.

    One other question: I know the BigBoy from ConCor/Rivarossi. Is there an other one available, may be without motor and a little bit cheaper?

    Regards
    Uwe
