Peco couplers
Any suggestions on how to use Peco rolling stock couplers ?
I have tried fitting a small piece of soft foam into the coupler box. This has only been moderately successful.
The couplers still tend to droop and then uncouple.
The Peco rolling stock is well made and cheaper than other makes - a good thing for pensioner - train nuts . :hmm

Are you talking N scale here Roy?
Contact Peco direct info@peco.co and ask them how to fix the problem.

Thanks Ron

I  contacted Peco, but they didn't help.
In 2005 I visited Peco (Beer), which was amazing.
Their layouts ran like clockwork, and the N gauge stuff never uncoupled . :hmm
My Peco rolling stock is disappointing.

Can't help with the couplers, but if one of the mods could move this from the 'Off Topic' forum more people might see it and possibly be able to offer advice.
