Reply to "Lionel American Flyer ElectroCouplers on American Models switchers"

I collected and operated Lionel O scale model trains for several decades before getting my feet wet in the hi-rail version of S scale. Accordingly, I had become accustomed to- -or more accurately, spoiled by- -the operational reliability of Lionel’s knuckle coupler. The innate problems of using the current crop of available non-Kadee S couplers are particularly frustrating because I want to model a stub terminal and carry out numerous switching operations with a planned large passenger car fleet and several different locomotives...without having to use the dreaded manual uncoupling “tool.” Perhaps my best course of action would be to install Kadee couplers on all motive power and rolling stock and use as many #309 Kadee HO scale under-the-ties electric uncouplers [see graphic] as necessary.
