Semi-Retired; more time for trains.
- 23 Feb 2018
Having carried out a little work I need to check some clearance, so out with the Playmobile battery powered diesel, and behind it a number of LGB/Bachmann trucks. To my surprises the trucks kept coming uncoupled from the loco. Closer inspection show the Play mobile loco (and wagons) have the bottom of their loop higher than both LG and Backmann, so on some of the (not so level) the truck uncouple, there being only a hook on the truck. Place a Playmobile wagon between the loco and LGB and the loco stays attached and the LGB stays coupled to the Playmobile wagon due to double hooks. How do the rest of you manage this issue, or do you not mix manufactures.
