You have to experiment.

Distances between rolling stock depends on the curves on your track and coupling distances and type of stock in some cases (sprung buffers and sprung pocket etc.).

When deciding on Kadee couplers for these Bachmann wagons, I realised that if they were too close then fouled up on some curves.

Other wagon with the same # coupler were fine.

All part of the fun of modelling. I have some trains that can go anywhere, some that can't go through tight junctions due to coupling distances. Difficult to make one rule to suit all stock.
