H type couplers-useful information


I recently equipped some Rapido Osgood-Bradley "American Flyer" coaches with H type couplers. The H type couplers look really nice and operate as they should (forced me to dial in coupler height perfectly). This car/coupler combination does not work on 30" radius or smaller. I think they would likely need a minimum #6 or possibly #8 turnout for crossovers and definitely work better 34"+ radius.
