I would like to assemble one or two prewar sets. I have thus far the 224E and 226E with the matching tenders. I think I am seeing two different types of pre war coupler - one I think is called a "box" coupler and I'm not sure what the other is called. At least it appears different and maybe earlier. I'm not sure if its compatible with the box coupler or even when it was used. 

I think there is an adapter of some kind to go from box coupler to knuckle.

Thanks! AL

Pre/Post war is the way to go!

The two primary ɹɐʍǝɹd couplers are the earlier latch couplers (left) and the later box couplers (right)...

Followed by Norma Bates Kitteh, who isn't equipped with couplers but insisted on photobombing my layout, as is her wont.

The latch and box couplers will couple together without any difficulties, apart from the giant kitteh blocking the tracks...

Hope this helps!

Yes indeed it does! AT least I know the 2 prewar coupler types are compatible. I LOVE the kitty! A friend and I were testing out a vintage Singer Sewing Machine and his kitty was right there making sure we did things correctly! LOL!
