In one of the train catalogs I noticed that the new style connector that the Life Like cars come with is allot less expensive than the Kaydee ones. Does any one know if these new style Life Like ones are a direct replacement to the old horn hook ones found on the Life Like and Bachmann cars from the early 80s? I have allot of these from when I was a kid and wanted to convert some. Currently I am just using a conversion car to link different types together. All of my main trins have been converted.
