I will post the query here first as these items were at the bottom of a box of Playmobil plastic track. Just over 6cm in length and I have a small bag of them.
Or Gizzy did the man thing to not read them? Sorry Gizzy, feeling mischievous today!Yes, they are the second version of the joiners for the R/C track. The first version was basically the raised centre section and were difficult to disconnect by hand. Playmobil had foreseen this potential problem and had so designed them that the feet of a figure could be slipped underneath them and the connector prised off. This was illustrated in the instructions, but I guess many people didn't read them all that well and, of course, if you bought as set secondhand there might not be any instructions with it

I do think you are correct, The thread may well still be in place somewhere! If only we could remember what it was called.Teaser!
It was just a good guess on my part, as I've never even seen Playmo track in the real, let alone read any instruction manuals?
Somewhere in my deep and distance memory, I remember someone who used to post on GSC (or maybe GSM) who scratch built a British outline diesel shunter using a Playmo chassis and ran it on Playmo track in the garden. I think he even built a Bo-Bo diesel as well....
