Back in September of 2019 I released my OO gauge dummy knuckle couplings which are designed to fit into NEM pockets on locomotives and wagons; you can read the post here.
These have the advantage of connecting directly to Kadee couplings without the risk of disconnecting. They are also 2mm taller than the normal Kadee couplings to allow for the different manufactures’ NEM pocket heights.
However, the need for a slightly shorter version has been highlighted so I’ve now made that available too.
Using two of my original couplings, the distance between the face of the NEM pockets is 20mm. The shorter version gives 18mm. The two millimeters doesn’t sound a lot, but in a rake of wagons it can make a big difference.
I have renamed the original releases slightly to differentiate them from the new ones. The ‘large’ refers to the knuckle height, not the length.
These are now all available using the links above.
If you require a different length please get in touch and I’ll make it available as well.
