Reply to "Continuing Saga of Lionel's poor new truck design"

I'm in the same boat - having recently acquired a Therm-Ice Reefer, Hercules 8K tank car - I can't connect to older scale rolling stock. I have to 'hand-couple' sometimes having to jam the couplers together, lifting one up and sliding the couplers together. I have an S-curve on my layout, and with the coupler tightness, the trucks don't have the give or sway to negotiate the curve, and sometimes, the truck on the car will 'lift', leaving one set of wheels on the track. Not the best design in my opinion.
