From his (Alan) last comments that I saw, it seemed more like the financial burden was what drove him away. Maybe he will return and illuminate things for us. The last posts of his that I saw were lamenting the high costs of track and switches.
Nothing is cheap these days, hobbies included! 🙂 I agree with bob2 about "fixating" on things; as has been mentioned many, many times, it's all a compromise of sorts, so we have to do the best we can... As far as couplers are concerned, I like to keep the original dummy types on my vintage stuff: I love Kadees ( for a lot of reasons), but those old cast ones just look..."right". 🙂
