Found 5 m track uncouplers, but the number stamped on the underside of some of them is 3601EK; as far as i know the number should be 5112?
And one has a strange curved end plastic uncoupler piece - Does not have the usual chamfered ends.The track on most of them was horribly rusted, and loads of old glued on ballast, but some serious cleaning and 3 of the 5 are working!...and I found a bumper track end, with a light, and it works...what a good good day....now to get the other 2 uncouplers to function, probably needs re-wiring, oh boy, my eyes are not so good when it comes to soldering such tiny items!!

Joe, in 1957 they renumbered M-track from the 36xx series to the 51xx/52xx series. This was about the same time as they changed loco numbers from xx800 to 3xxx.
