Beautifully short coupled cars with the proven Hook and Loop system
S-KUPLIX enables your prototypical appearance.
The new loop is about only 50% of the size of LGB’s (Aristocraft, Kiss, TrainLine45, and others) loop. S-KuPLIX can be utilized in two different ways
- As direct replacement of the original loop
- Replacement of the original loop after shortening the coupler shaft
S-KuPLIX was in particular developed for Kiss and LGB Panorama cars, but works equally well with LGB other LGB passenger cars, European and American models.
S-KuPLIX occupies only half the width of a standard loop, hence a shortened shaft has more room to turn under the body because these loops will hit the obstacles later.
Therefore short coupled cars can even master R1 (although they look more elegant in larger radii).
S-KuPLIX still utilizes the original hook and coupler spring. All you need to do is remove the old hook and disassemble the hook and spring. You can optionally shorten the shaft before you mount S-KUPLIX and reassemble the hook and spring.
The result, more prototypical looking trains on your layout.
Your reliable LGB parts resource for
North America, and of course the rest of the World
We have between our US warehouse and our supply chain access to more than 10,000 parts (not all of which are listed here), as well as are able to produce parts. If parts are coming from our supply chain then the wait time can be 6 weeks. We are collecting many orders in that case in order to minimize the shipping impact as part of the cost. Should you have an emergency we can UPS/FEDEX/DHL the part directly to you, but the cost are high. However, you are being charged at this point in time, because too often people forgot or changed their mind on special orders and we cannot be stuck with them, unless everybody is wants to pay higher prices.
We have conveniently placed important LGB information on our website. Top row (in blue) is one high-level menu called LGB Information;
