If I don't care that much about remote switching (and I don't), is there any good reason why I can't stay with Aristocraft couplers on my locomotive and cars? I really like to just watch the train go around and around. Will the gods of G scale visit me with a plague of mutant moles for taking the esay way out?
I use Aristos. They work well for me and I can uncouple cars easily with my big mitts. My biggest complaint with them is the distance between cars being a bit big. Other than that I like them just fine.
