Tomix MT conversions

> main > modeller's corner > couplers > Tomix

These are 'the hard bits', as Tomix uses a different coupler pocket than other Japanese manufacturers, which is also mounted rather low. With care most Tomix models can be converted to MT couplers. My most sincere thanks go to Phil Hendry and Garth Hamilton, as they provided me very useful information on conversions I have not done until now.
As on the other pages, I will give a few examples that are typical for the Tomix range.

Tomix Locomotives

Both conversions are relatively easy, precluded that you already have some experience, the DE10 conversion is a little more complicated.
