The other school said to move the coupler box back, so the distance between coupled cars would be correct when using the commonly available couplers.

Hi Tech Details flexible rubber air hoses
When all is done, it is magic to see two sowe'lldetailed and equipped cars coupled up with a true scale distance between striker plates (c 2930"), the hanging rubber brake hoses

Coupling distance
Both the Type E and Type D coupler before it had a 12" striker horn to pulling face dimension, so at rest two coupled cars would be 30" between the strikers.

Duryea underframe modelling...
Modeling Duryea underframes will placed the coupled distance between cars at a greater distance than that of the standard AAR underframe. I hope this helps. Regards, Bob Witt

Kadee Scale Coupler Operational Reliablity
In the case of the Bronx terminal, all the cars had the almost universal standard of either 5'0" or 5'6" to striker distance.

A curious aspect in the Delano photo
Since all (or most) are 40 ft cars, the doors logically should align even with the cars coupled.

HO shortshank "scale couplers".
My interest in them has been driven not only by their nearscale proportions, but also because for the first time, coupled cars can be spaced from each other close to, or at the correct

Scale Couplers: Distances between cars; Prototype vs. Model
Reviewing my post on this subject, I did not make clear that the measured distance between the faces of the draft gear boxes of coupled cars (which is what I measured) is NOT the same
