Piko G1206 to Tillig rolling stock, how to couple together

Postby Rich1853 » Thu Jul 26, 2018 10:02 pm

Ok I removed one of the Piko coupler and replaced it with a Tillig one from one of Traxx BR285. Going on my starter set BR11 R310 curve the buffers of Piko and any of the Tillig rolling stock next in line will hit and disengage and the Piko will keep on going.
Researching previous post I would need a Piko 46040 adapter for the Tillig 08828 couplers.
Please correct me if I am wrong or is there another way.
Thanks,
Regards

edit 07/27/2018: the couplers on my Tillig rolling stock appears to be KUEHN 74900 (it has a vertical movable latch) according to images I've seen.

Edit: another way is to remove the buffer(s) On the inside side of the layout. But I wouldn't do that.

The adapter Piko 46040 isn't necessary. It should work without, but it doesn't. But I can't find a solution at http://www.tt-board.de. Here is the Piko G1206 - topic with the same problem. Conclusion: It works with some cars from Roco and Kuehn.

I would say: forget these couplers. I also replaced all these futuristic devices from my rolling stock with the old reliable BTTB couplers ( which are also on Piko models).
These new fancy couplers are absolutely not suitable for the most domestic layouts. They are perfect for the huge modular layouts with level track, no tight curves and gradients :twisted: :wall:
