Discussion related to everything about model railroading, from layout design and planning, to reviews of related model tools and equipment. On another forum I read about Segent Engineering who make couplers the resemble the prototype couplers on freight equipment.
They look great and they work like the prototype in which the couplers are held in by friction (theres no centering mechanism).
I use the new tight-lock couplers on my NJT set and now i set to buy more of the couplers for the rest of my passenger fleet i will post pic's of my finished models. I have been using the Sergent couplers on my freight trains for some time now, and I do like them a lot.


The release of the retooled Model Die Casting Old Time 36' freight cars is a boon to Turn of the Nineteenth Century modeler. N scale couplers are the right size but their height makes them undependable on rough track.
A comparison of the stock couplers and the Accumate Proto: HO, the cars are much closer together. Use a drill that slips into the coupler box hole to mark the location of the mounting hole. The Sergent coupler gives a very realistic appearance but I found the operation of the Accumates outweighs the slightly larger appearance.


The couplers supplied are really lacking and the faults ot the original tooling are still evident.
I tried the Sergent and found it a little finicky for my taste, but I found the Accumate Proto: HO. The only problem I see with these is that I'm going to have to design a seperate draft gear for each model railroad car manufacturer, and I'm going to need an injection-molding machine or someone to mass produce them.

    Frequently bigger to accommodate scale can really make somewhat.
