    I have posted this on the forum once or twice too, its an excellent piece of information to have in circulation, helped me with a Kato switcher a while back, I need to use the info again on a new set of locos too.

    The main issue I've seen with Kato couplers is their height. Most Kato rolling stock is lower than MTL-standard coupler height.
