56101 Retrofit Set of Reproduction Prototype Couplers.
Detailed miniature reproduction of the original prototype coupler as used in real life on the railroad. These couplers work like the prototype. Mounting springs included. Contents 10 pieces. The standard 1 Gauge models produced since 1987 can have the regular claw coupler replaced with this reproduction prototype coupler. This coupler looks and works like its real life prototype. Running a train with this coupler usually requires a very wide minimum radius of 3.0 to 3.5 meters or 118" to 138", depending on the models. Current standard 1 Gauge models that can be retrofitted with this coupler can be identified by the symbol shown below.
