Bachmann





Note: Our conversions typically requiring the least modification to a model. The How To Instructions and Diagrams are based of the Original Style Coupler.

Note: If the coupler conversion doesn't have a "New Generation" Type "E" Coupler option listed it is not available. If you would like "New Generation" Type "E" Couplers, you will need to purchase the listed coupler package (in order to have the necessary components for conversion) & then you would need to purchase the appropriate "New Generation" Type "E" Coupler replacement couplers & swap out couplers in original conversion. Use the coupler cross reference chart description or coupler description from Kadee® web site product page to identify the coupler style included in the packaging. The #782, #783, #1782 & #1783 have modified couplers that are not available in the "New Generation" Type "E" Coupler.

Note: Kadee®-RC Couplers can only be body mounted.

Always check the #1-Scale coupler heights with either our #829 or Type "E" #1929 #1-Scale Coupler Height Gauge and check the G-Scale coupler heights with either our #880 or Type "E" #980 G-Scale Coupler Height Gauge. Please visit our trouble shooting page for helpful hints.
