Well after the great response and comments for the advice wanted re my derailments with the Pullman coaches ( and a lot also said having same problem ) with various couplings , I have found the solution.
I followed most of the suggestions and came up with the best answer, most suggested that I change to a different type of coupling mainly to Kadees which are very popular world wide.
I tried out the Bachmann pipe connection and this proved very good, but not the best for uncoupling after, so I ordered some Kadee large size 19 with NEM pocket fittings, and near perfect, just caused the one derailment at speed in reverse, as shown in the video.
Looking closely as shown in the video the buffers where just catching due to needing longer fitting couplings, causing the derailment, and now I have ordered some of the extra long size 20 which should solve the problem completely, but running forward with these as they are on size 19 not a problem…
Thank you all again for your suggestions in helping me solve this.
Here is my video showing fitting the new couplings and the results.
A huge thanks to Dave. If you missed his original post, it’s here.
That’s all for today folks. Please do keep ’em coming, it’s all getting a bit thin on the ground this end.
And please don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want to stop dreaming and start doing.
