Re: Any narrow gauge news/ coupler bounce is prototypical


Coupler "bounce" as you describe it only happens on cars with cushioned drawbars (auto racks, lumber racks and some box cars for example) narrow gauge cars of 50's and previous did not have cushioned drawbars and therefore had no "bounce".  Additionally even with cushioned drawbars once the slack is stretched the couplers stay pulled out unlike Kadees whose springs can actually pull the cars back together and make the train look like a slinky going down the track.
