Replacement for broken RMT coupler

Folks,

I've have 2 RMT hopper cars each with a broken coupler.    I looked on the RMT site to see if they have replacement couplers and/or trucks.  I didn't find anything there.

I was wondering if anyone had any info or advice on replacing an RMT coupler.

Thanks,

Ed

Got a reply from Susie at RMT and found out that unlike the modern cars being produced the cars I have are 8 years old and used Aristo parts which are no longer available since they went out of business. She did tell me I could use K-line couplers and knuckles as John had suggested.

Thanks to all who replied with help and to Susie at RMT for her help.

If you're lazy or fumble-fingered, you can use the plastic knuckle with the built-in spring, they're very easy to install.  OTOH, I normally use the diecast knuckle with the separate spring as they last a whole lot longer before the spring gives out.
