Magne-Matic Coupler® 50th Anniversary

Fifty years ago, in 1969, Keith and Dale Edwards patented the design for the N scale Magne-Matic coupler in the month of September. The introduction of the Magne-Matic coupling system revolutionized the industry, offering the first ‘hands-free’ coupling, uncoupling and delayed-action recoupling system. The modeler could now have complete control over their train, operating solely from their control panel. Over the years, Micro-Trains has also produced many Magne-Matic coupler conversions to allow rolling stock and locomotives from other manufacturers to be converted over to the Magne-Matic system. This year, Micro-Trains will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the N scale coupler in various ways throughout the year. Stay tuned each month as we recognize and celebrate the legacy of the Magne-Matic Coupler!
