NARC - HO Scale - Third Generation High Performance MagnaLock Brake Line 10 Pair Conversion Starter Kit w/Gluing Jig (Square Magnets) (SKU 11-AIR-10HJ-run3)

Available On: June 1, 2017

When North American Railcar Corporation introduced our MagnaLock Brake Lines, the response was overwhelmingly positive. Modelers had been looking for something like them for years. And while our first generation MagnaLocks are fully functional and look great, our experience and feedback from modelers has led to the development of our improved second generation MagnaLocks. Now, after more feedback, we have released our third generation MagnaLocks with improved features and more realistic appearance

This is the starter kit and contains the gluing jig and ten pairs of North American Railcar Corporation HO Scale Third Generation Improved MagnaLock Air Lines for conversion of existing locomotives and rolling stock. Each conversion requires one pair.
