Code 75 frustration
A recent frustration has involved Code 75 Peco track and the ramps required to uncouple tension-lock couplings. The ones you find on the ends of all OO RTR locos.
Quite simply, how has something so fundamental not been made to work?
Peco sell two ramps, Hornby one. All will fit the track. All manage to uncouple wagons from each other. All will lift a locomotive off the rails, beaching it like a lowered sports car on a particularly nasty speed hump.
Come on chaps. Code 75 track is not new. Tension-lock couplings are universal. Where's the ramp for the finer track?
Yes, I know I could change the couplings or use some sort of funky electric ramp system but I don't understand why this is necessary.
