Hi all,

I cant seem to find the answer to what I probably a simple question.

The Schienbus, were they able to be driven from either end?

When pulling a passenger trailer did the have to uncouple and "go around" or were the able to fit into a turn-table.

Can anyone guide me on to a site that may be able to answer these things for me?

Thanks.

Mike.

When pulling a trailer they would either need to use a turntable or un-couple and re-attach on the other end, to reverse direction.

If it was the main car only, it could be driven from either end.


Unfortunately Marklins railbus (at least the new series) have special low couplers so you cannot use a de-coupler track, therefore preventing you from using them in a terminal station scenario (unless you have a TT)
