HO Scale Macdonald-Cartier “Rusty” Magnetic Metal Knuckle Couplers

Are you ready for the next step in layout realism? Yes, thanks to Rapido now YOU can operate your cars in prototypical temperatures!

How many times have you tried to operate your HO scale model trains through a real raging snowstorm only to have your couplers fail? Ice storm? Sleet? Frost? These common meteorological conditions have little or no effect on prototype couplers, but try and operate HO scale couplers in three feet of snow and you get nothing but frustration!

NOT ANY MORE!

Our new Macdonald-Cartier couplers have been designed in Canada specifically for cold weather. They will operate flawlessly down to -28.7 degrees Celsius (that’s like REALLY cold in Fahrenheit, eh?). They even come completely covered in rust, just like the real thing. These are the only couplers worthy of the names Macdonald and Cartier... proud fathers of the Great White North. Beauty.

Next time you need to replace the cheap plastic couplers on your ready-to-run models, choose Macdonald-Cartier couplers: the #1 choice among lumberjacks, fur traders, maple syrup harvesters and some guys who play hockey.

Disclaimers: -28.7 degrees operation achieved under laboratory conditions. Actual reliable operating temperature may be completely, totally or ridiculously different. Rapido accepts no responsibility for frostbite, hypothermia, or pneumonia that might be contracted while checking the validity of our claims. Rust coloring looks really cool, but does not affect the operation of the couplers, which work, like, really well, eh?
