Very nice indeed!  :)9

Did it require a lot of work to fit the new couplers in place? They definitely look more authentic, at least as far as compared to US prototype trains.

That looks great. Has anyone ever tried Kadee couplers with Playmo?

Hmmm, since the only Kadee couplers I own are in N-scale, they'd look a little silly! :D
