QUOTE (custodian @ 13 Nov 2008, 08:09) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I don't think it is great. They will be at the wrong height. Scale couplers should be mounted between the buffers, not below the buffer beam in a NEM pocket.

Although more expensive, a proper scale couple such as those from Weinert, will be much more realistic and will provide a realistic take up as the train pulls away.

Sorry to be negative but just don't really see the point of this "halfway house"

*** I have to say I really do agree with you, and its a shame they don't....

But for those who really don't want to modify RTR stock or don't feel confident, it is at least a big step in the right direction towards realism compared to most RTR couplers..

It'd be nice if they made a second model with a plain round mounting pin that could simply be pushed/glued/pinned into a hole drilled in the buffer beam.... Still easy, and as you said, far more prototypical.
