More on magnets - for Z scale MT's
- Hello list:
I mentioned in a previous email, that in addition to an alternate source of
permanent magnets for MicroTrains couplers, there was also an electromagnet
solution that worked. In particular, on mainlines where accidental
uncoupling is embarrasing.
You just power them with 12vdc (not one volt more) and put them under the
cork, flush with the table surface. The power supply instructions that come
with them are for N scale, if you do that scale, too.
Well, my delay in the details was to make certain the seller still exists and
if his price had changed. It didn't. Here is his response below.

Glad the magnets are working for you, they sure seem to have made a hit with
everyone that has tried them. Lots of reorders. They are still available at
4/ $20 + $3.20 Priority. 8 will still go for $3.20 shipping.
The best electro-magnetic uncoupler for N & Z scale.
