The Wrenn wagons are old, not been around new since about 1988, I have about 500 of them and they are excellent, pizza cutter wheels stay on the track, cast alloy chassis adds enough weight to stay on the track and the couplings are metal and fix onto two lugs at each end and this all gives consistancy, modern wagons are not the same, sometimes more accurate but hey when you have underscale track as it is HO, code 100. so your american stuff aught to be good enough, UK firm Peco make code 83 for US and this is fine except you need a lot more length.

Anyway stock up with Wrenn wagons whilst you can, in fact More Wrenn sell new ones now.

So as to other couplings there are some shown above but there are so many, however they should all couple with each other but some are droopy, some are different heights and if there is a difference it'll be in the mix somewhere. If you are doing a lot of shunting then good luck, I tend to keep my stock coupled up semi-permanently.

Anyway any issues ask away.
