Roco Couplings

Postby paddynski » Sat Jan 23, 2021 5:52 pm

Hi

I recently bought a Roco loco but it has broken couplings! I have a replacement coupling but cannot figure-out how to remove the broken ones. It looks like there are some plastic retaining "clips" preventing the broken coupling from sliding out of its slot at the end of the bogie. Please see attached photo. Any help / advice greatly appreciated.

All the best

Patrick

Don't see a photo but no matter: the coupling will be plugged into an NEM coupler pocket, and should just pull out.

Sorry about photos. Will try again. Couplings are broken and this is my problem.

If there's not enough coupling to grab onto to pull it out, use a pair of very fine pointed tweezers to squeeze together the two protruding pips at inner end of the NEM pocket and push them in. Then you should be able to pull them through the pocket.
