    OK, here's the deal...I got 2 Bachmann starter sets (I know, I know...) for a steal on Ebay, brand new. I'd like to convert the couplers on the sets, but I'm not sure what I need. I've got the Empire Builder set, which has a Northern 4-8-4 Loco and Tender. I've also got the Thunder Valley set, which has an EMD GP40 Loco. Can anyone help suggest a mag coupler to convert these to?

    Kadee couplers

    I had checked out Kadee couplers, but those all look to be HO, not N scale. Any other ideas?

    The N scale version of Kadee is Micro Trains, who split off from Kadee a couple of decades ago. Some of us old fogeys still call them Kadee.

    Micro Trains

    Thanks! I assume the best bet is to pay a visit to my LHS, which is unfortunately, just over an hour away. I'll see what info I can find on the Micro Trains site.
