    Question Couplers on a Bachmann GP50

    I lost the guts to one of the stock(Rapido) couplers on my Bachmann GP50. I'm thinking about replacing both couplers with Micro-Train conversions. I've been to their website but I can't figure out what # conversion kit I need. The coupler boxes on the GP50 are attached to the trucks. Any help would be appreciated. Smitty

    MTL website says either 1128 or 1129. The 1128's are short shank and the 1129's are medium shank (the latter works better for sharp curves).
