Hi I am a new convert to all things G gauge and in need of some advice. I have just purchased a Peco 37125 BR 80 steam train and two carriages.
Can anyone please tell me if Peco do an automatic un-coupler ? I have a LGB un-coupler that clips in-between the rails but it sits to low on the track to raise the couplings on the Peco carriages. What do in need to buy to do the job ? thanks in advance.

Welcome. I think that what you bought is not Peco but Piko which is a totally different company, confusing isn't it? Others will be along soon to answer your question.

Have fun

Thanks for that. Lack of attention to detail. Post amended to PIKO

I thought Piko locos and stock used the standard LGB hook and loop? So a manual LGB uncoupler track #10520 or a the electric version #10560 should work?

They do work (sort of) but if you have a hook on each vehicle you do need two of these uncouplers. Best bet is to use a good old Stainless Steel Bone kitchen knife.
