I was hoping that they were isolated, but did not really know. I did not have a problem with the older Sergent couplers on the old layout, which I had to tear down in order to move. However, a new (larger) layout is on the way! Thanks for the quick reply!

Subject: [SergentEng] RE: Pilot couplers
I have converted one of my Blackstone's to Sharon couplers on the pilot and the tender. The locomotive I chose was my K-27 #459, which I also did a snowplow conversion on. I've had no problems running double headers with this locomotive. I believe the pilot and tender coupler boxes are isolated from the frame, so this shouldn't be a problem. BTW, the Sharon looks awesome with the snow plow! Very prototypical in appearance. I did have to file down the underside of the plow so the coupler could move side to side more freely.
