Kadee Couplers vs. Aristocraft

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.

Thanks Nick,

That looks encouraging.

Have you tried to pull a train with that kadee & Aristo coupler combination to see if the couplers will not separate - including going around curved track?


Yes, the Aristo/Kadee combination works fine. A railway I visit for running ops has only Kadees and I can hook up and pull cars all around without a problem.
