YES! Absolutely! I've watched train crews make up trains in Chama doing just this! The switchman puts his brake club in the draft gear area and aligns the coupler and its still being done today. However, in the prototype world there is an ongoing world wide quest to design a coupler that self aligns and has air and electrical contacts integral with the coupler head. No one has a design that has been standardized and adopted outside of the places of origin yet. But the day is coming.
