Kadee make 5 couplers to fit NEM type coupler pockets, 16,17,18, 19 and 20. Unfortunately theses couplers only change in length with 16 the shotest and 20 the longest. Unlike the normal range of Kadee couplers there are no over or under shank couplers that can used to alter the height of the coupler when it's in it's normal postion in the coupler pocket. While most Hornby models with NEM type362 pockets are at or near the correct height Bachmann models seem to vary in height. Most of the Bachmann rolling stock I have, have had their MEM pockets cut off and a Kadee std 5 pocket fitted with the required coupler of length and height. Mostly the std 5 pocket needs packing up with some platicard packing to attain a compatible hieght for working with Hornby stock.
