Wheels and Couplings

Spare and alternative couplings
Replacement wheelsets to upgrade older models
A great tune-up tool from DCC Concepts!

The bearing reamer set contains two reamers designed to clean up the moulded plastic bearing holes of RTR coaches and wagons and older kits with moulded plastic bearings. Fitting between the bearing sockets in place of the axle finger pressure can be applied to turn the reamer and cut a clean tapered bearing for pin-point axles. This cleans out any accumulated dirt/debris and corrects any faults with the moulded profile.
The reamers can also be used to make the bearing holes deeper, for example to allow standard length axles with recent finer-scale wheels to be fitted to Lima rolling stock and dealing with any 'tight' axles.

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.

Bachmann 36-028 00 Gauge Metal Split Spoked Wagon Wheels (x10)

Pack of 10 axles

Split spoke wagon wheels were commonly used under railway wagons in the pre-grouping era and continued to be the usual type of wheels fitted to private owner coal wagons until the 1930s.While the railway companies preferred to use cast steel solid spoke and later spun steel disc wheels the large number of private owner wagons, mostly built with split-spoke wheels, meant that these 'old time' wheels were still in use until the old wood-frame coal wagons were replaced in the 1950s. Even then due to the standardisation of wheels and axles old but servicable split-spoke wheels would be re-used, even be seen under new BR-built wagons.

Kadee KDE17 OO/HO Short Length NEM Knuckle Coupler

Kadee metal knuckle coupler with NEM pocket mounting, as fitted to most current production European models, including Hornby and Bachmann.

Pack of four No.17 couplers with short length shank measuring 7.11mm between the shoulder 'stop' on shank which fits against the NEM pocket to the pulling face inside the coupler knuckle.

No.17 couplers are usually too short for fitting to British and European outline models with side buffers, but can be used on stock with centre drawgear only and not having side buffers.
This includes most modern multiple-unit trains and an increasing number of goods wagon types designed for unit train operation. The equiping of class 66 locomotives with knuckle couplers is reducing the need for 'outer' wagons with buffers at the end of a train.

Kadee KDE18 OO/HO Gauge Medium Length NEM Knuckle Coupler

Kadee metal knuckle coupler with NEM pocket mounting, as fitted to most current production European models, including Hornby and Bachmann.

Pack of four No.18 couplers with medium length shank measuring 11/32in or 8.63mm.
Measurement from shoulder 'stop' on shank which fits against the NEM pocket to the pulling face of the coupler.

We normally advise the No.19 coupler as the most suitable for general use the No. 18 couplers can be used as an alternative on many models when running on broad curves eg. No.4 radius (22in) or greater.
The No.18 offers a shorter, neater appearance for locomotives, especially those with sprung buffers which will allow a little extra clearance. Always double check the coupler installation provides sufficient slack on your sharpest radius curve to ensure trouble-free operations.

Kadee KDE19 OO/HO Gauge Long Length NEM Knuckle Coupler

Kadee metal knuckle coupler with NEM pocket mounting, as fitted to most current production European models, including Hornby and Bachmann.

Pack of four No.19 couplers with long length shank measuring 27/64in or 10.61mm.
The 19 is the couple most frequently required for British OO models, placing the rear inside face of the coupler knuckle in line with the buffer heads. This position will allow many models to run on track curve radii down to No.4 (22in) and usually No.3. For radii less than No.4 / 22in and on vehicles with recessed NEM pockets the no.20 coupler may be required.
Always double check your coupler installation by testing on your sharpest radius curve to ensure there is sufficient slack to ensure trouble-free operations.

The extra long shank is needed for some models with deeply recessed coupler pockets and may be required on long models to provide sufficent spacing between vehicles for reliable operation over Setrack curves.

Kadee KDE141 Long Length Underset Shank Knuckle Coupler

The 40 series Kadee metal knuckle couplers are supplied with draft boxes ready for installation beneath the floor of any model not equiped with NEM coupler pockets. A height gauge (Kadee 205) is recommended to ensure the correct mounitng height is achieved.

No.141 couplers have an underset shank, placing the knuckle above the line of the draft box, suitable for models with low floors, deep buffer beams and for bogie-mounted couplers. This new design coupler features centering 'whiskers', simplifing assembly by eliminating the separate centering spring unit.

The No.146 couplers with a centre-set shank will often place the drawbar at the correct height with the draft box attached directly below the headstock/bufferbeam of British OO models. The new design 146 couplers have integral 'whisker' type centring springs, replacing the separate centreing spring of the earlier Kadee design No.46 coupler.

Kadee KDE156 OO/HO Scale Head Long Length Centreset Knuckle Coupler

Kadee 156 couplers feature a smaller size of coupler knuckle head, closer to the scale size of a US railroad coupler knuckle in HO scale. The British 'Buckeye' knuckle coupler is smaller than the modern US size, so the introduction of this long length coupler with a smaller head is particularly useful.

Using the long length couplers allows the coupler box to be mounted under the headstock of British outline rolling stock and bring the knuckle head out to the line of the buffers.

The 156 coupler uses integral whisker springs for centring, simplifying the assembly of coupler mounting boxes. The new snap together design plastic coupler mounting box is supplied.
Use of the height gauge (Kadee 206) is strongly recommended to ensure the correct mounting height is achieved consistantly, there being less tolerance for variation when using the smaller knuckles.

Pack of 4 couplers, sufficient for 2 vehicles.

Kadee KDE308 Undertrack Uncoupling Magnet

This Kadee uncoupler magnet assembly is designed to be fitted beneath the track sleeper base with a steel plate to ensure that the magnetic effect will open the knuckles reliably.

Once the knuckles are opened the real Kadee magic comes into play, as the couplers will go into a coupling delay position. A tongue fitted to each each coupler prevents the knuckels from re-engaging and the train can be propelled clear of the magnet. Only when the train is finally separated do the knuckles recentre ready for coupling again.

Kadee KDE322 OO/HO Low-Profile Uncoupling Magnets Pack of 2

These low-profile magnets are designed to fit better with track using code 83 and code 75 rail. The height of the magnet has been reduced, keeping the height above rail level similar to that achieved with a standard magnet in code 100 track.

When the couplers are slackened the knuckles will open allowing the couplers to be parted. Then the Kadee magic comes into play, as the couplers will go into a coupling delay position, a tongue fitted to each each coupler prevents the knuckels from re-engaging and the train can be propelled clear of the magnet. Only when the train is finally separated do the knuckles re-centre ready for coupling again.

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.

A pack of 25 pairs (50 couplers) of the Kadee no.158 near-scale size metal�knuckle coupler�with whisker type centreing spring.

These metal couplers feature a coupler knuckle which is close to scale size for US outline HO models. Smaller than the standard no.5 knuckle these are, in 4mm scale, also closer to the size of the�smaller Buckeye coupler used in Britain. These couplers are fitted with�integral whisker springs, ready for fitting into the coupler pockets of US freight cars.

Please note that�coupler mounting pockets are NOT supplied with the bulk packs. A height gauge (Kadee 205 or 206) is recommended to ensure the correct mounitng height is achieved.

Kadee KDE206 OO/HO Gauge Insulated Coupler Height Gauge

An essential tool for checking the correct positioning of Kadee couplers, this height gauge is a combination test device ensuring that every one of your couplers is setup to the same gauge.

This new style gauge is insulated, allowing it to be installed on a live track or siding. Whisker type couplers are supplied, with both the standard and HO scale size knuckles supplied with the gauge. The new extended draft gear mounting tongue is an exceptionally useful addition for British modellers, allowing the correct mounting height at which the coupler pocket should be attached beneath the buffer beam to be identified quickly when converting rolling stock.
This gauge can be used with Kadee and Bachmann EZmate couplers to ensure reliable coupling and uncoupling.

Kadee KDE309 Electro-Magnetic Undertrack Uncoupler

0A large electro-magnet designed to be mounted beneath the track. The magnet is arranged to create the correct field needed to correctly open Kadee couplers and place the knuckles in the uncouple delay position.

Once the knuckles are in a coupling delay position the tongue on to each each coupler prevents the knuckles from re-engaging and the train can be propelled clear of the magnet. Only when the train is finally separated do the knuckles re-centre, ready for coupling again.

Kadee KDE321 OO/HO Uncoupling Magnets Pack of 2

A pair of Kadee magnetic uncoupler magnets. These magnets are fitted between the rails such that the trip pins of the couplers are attracted outwards.
Designed for use with code 100 track, eg Peco Setrack and SL100 Streamline flexitrack.

When the couplers are slackened the knuckles will open allowing the couplers to be parted. Then the Kadee magic comes into play, as the couplers will go into a coupling delay position, a tongue fitted to each each coupler prevents the knuckels from re-engaging and the train can be propelled clear of the magnet. Only when the train is finally separated do the knuckles recentre ready for coupling again.

Roger Smith LINE20 00 GaugePack of 50 (approx) non-magnetic brass 3-link coupling loops.

The Roger Smiths coupling loops are larger than the Slaters ones, making it a bit easier to get them over a coupling hook!
This pack can be useful to make 3-link couplings for RTR vehicles fitted with coupling hooks but no chains, though if a substantial train is to be hauled we would suggest replacing plastic coupling hooks with metal ones.

Almost all new production British outline models are supplied with metal wheels matching the NMRA RP25 standards and narrow width tension lock couplers. Many older models have wheels moulded in plastic or with deeper flanges and larger couplings and the fitting of new wheel sets and the less obtrusive couplings can improve the appearance and running.

We can also supply more prototypical couplings, including the manually coupled 3-link type couplings associated with the steam era and magnetically operated knuckle type couplings of the type fitted on modern rolling stock.
