Coupler wars.

There is some confusion as to what the right coupler to use is.

It is obvious that to recreate the true H P Products experience you have to use the old Baker couplers.

When they came available, modelers started using Kadee 711 couplers.
These are of course too big.

Now modeler ares using Micro Trains N-Scale couplers.
I have wondered if these were the right size.
A while ago some Kadee TT-Scale couples showed up in a collection.
Today I was able to compare them to Micro Trains couplers.

The Micro Trains couplers might be a bit smaller, but they look right.

New hoppers almost ready for service.

Weight added and couplers changed.
Still need to add loads. I have realized that all of my loads need to be modified to sit higher. They currently sit too low in the cars.

While working on these cars I briefly contemplated the thought that I had too many hopper cars. That thought passed quickly. You only have too may cars when you don't have enough locomotives to pull them.
Then the solution is obvious . . . . . buy more locomotives . . . to pull more hopper cars.

This is a nice collection. :thumbup: Which couplers did you choose? MTL 1015 or 1016?

Congratulations on the luxury problem - too many wagons and too few locomotives! :smile:
Lok-n-Roll.de - we send worldwide :wink:
