I also asked the folks at Precision Scale Co. why they built such a gorgeous N&W M2 locomotive that did not include a working front coupler. I was told that they (i.e., PSC) make an operating scale coupler that can be fitted to the front of their brass locomotives. Part number is: HO-32048. Since it is listed as an "AAR Common Standard Full Working Coupler", I wonder if these would work on freight cars as well (I didn't think to ask at the time). Have you, or anyone else on the list, tried to fit these couplers to locomotives and/or cars? What are they compatible with (as far as coupling)?
Personally, I like the ProtoAccumates for my freight cars, but would love to find an operating front coupler for my brass steam locomotives, especially a scale-size operating coupler.
