The last thing I would put close to electrical connections is Silicon, it is an insulator.

Ask Westinghouse in USA they have banned its use including floor cleaners as it caused major problems, als ...

Has anyone fitted Kadees to Eureka's 623/723s?

I am having derailing problems when pushing trailer car and suspect the existing couplers.

I have just bought a Dapol track cleaning wagon and it vacuums well surprised how much ballast was left on track??

Now I need a suitable track cleaning fluid to us what is recommended?

Peter

I need advise on setting up Kadees - as I now have a tool to adjust.

In particular how do I stop wagons decoupling when passing slowly

over the magnets.

Adding weights does not seem to help.

Laptop top bricks are also smaller and some/maybe have protection built in.

As the Lenz system can use DC as well as AC it maybe a better option.

Thank you.

Is there any chance that you may have other photos of the Tumut Branch line?

Peter

The coupler is a complicated system in that it is designed when going around a bend to extend the distance between cars .

There is triangle shape piece in a hole in the frame and the coupler is hel ...

I had tried installing a small brass plate which extends the coupler length by 5mm this does not work, probably to much play/slop.

Perhaps putting wheels on with a larger flange will stop it derail ...

I have contacted Eureka but no help - disappointing.

I thought they may have had a fitting that could be used as they know there is a problem with the couplers.

There does seem to be a lot of ve ...

They are not Kadees or normal couplers but fabricated as part of the body with a moving plate sticking out with a hole and (to short) pin respectively, they have a spring to hold in centre and when go ...

The problem is that there is slack in the coupler, even when new the spacing between was very tight, now they are touching even on a straight section.

Thanks for suggestions.

Peter

I have a problem with the Eureka 620/720 couplers when the power car is pushing the unpowered on curves, 1 metre diameter, it derails.

I think it is because the ends are touching, I have extended t ...
