You can disagree if you want to. And consider it bad advice no problem. That's why I respect you and your input. However, I won't take it back. I can also agree with you if I want to. Full length passenger cars with body mounted couplers, do have problems coupling on my 24" radius curves. Just like yours, as they don't line up correctly. Seldom do I ever have a problem though as I exercise a rule of not coupling on the curves. You know why and the rest of the story. When it comes to pulling them or making reverse moves back into the yard...no problems. Do I dare say, better then truck mounted couplers. All good.
