Which Kadee should I use.
Thanks In Advance.
I think it is the #425's. About $12 a kit, which only does one engine. You
could use McHenry's for a definately cheaper route but when I put two E8's
together and a ton of cars I think the pull was too great and it snapped one
of the couplers (McHenry). I don't know if it was during the pull or
backing up to the line of cars that was too hard. Anyways, the Kadee's look
kinda intimidating to assemble on the E8's but once I did one I didn't have
any problems with the others engines. I guess I just had to get used to how
it was all fitting together and to realize what all I was replacing. I
think that some of the earlier E8's didn't need the kit. I think they were
like the E7's and they just needed the #30 series style couplers. My local
hobby dude showed me his E8 that didn't need the conversion. Hmmm... I
don't know the story behind that.
But, yes go to the Kadee web site. They have detailed instructions on some
of the conversions and an over-all conversion list. Great reference.
