DCC Concepts DCG-BB1485 Finescale Wheel Back-to-Back Gauge 14.85mm

14.85mm OO gauge back to back gauge.
Back-to-back gauges are used to check that the wheels are correctly spaced apart. Adjust your wheels to the correct gauge settings for reliable operation though points.
14.85mm back-to-back is used for finescale OO modelling and is especially useful for setting wheels on kit-built rolling stock and when using scale type three-link couplings. This gauge has been designed for use with NMRA RP-25-88 0.088in tread width wheels.
Wheels set too wide or too narrow will not run through points properly and can derail on plain track. The back-to-back gauge sits between the wheels, which should fit against each face when correctly gauged for OO/HO 16.5mm gauge track.

Hornby R8220 00 Gauge NEM Close Couplings

Pack of 10 Honby clip style close coupler pocket couplings with NEM attachment.These couplings are ideal for use with Hornby and Bachmann coaching stock fitted with extending couplers arms which increase the coupling spacing between coaches on curves

When coupled these couplings form a solid bar connecting the two coaches, helping to ensure the coupler arms return to the 'closed up' position on straight track.

These couplers will couple with the Roco close couplers. The Hornby units are slightly longer than the Roco versions, so coach spacings can be adjusted further using Roco and Hornby couplers to find optimum combinations for your layout.
