Yes. Unlike in large scale, all of the common HO (and thus On30) knuckle couplers should work reasonably reliably together. Mixing the scale and standard sizes (Kadee #58 and #5, respectively) can sometimes be a slight challenge, especially when coupling in curves or trying to manually uncouple, but event hat I would call gould enough to be reliable.

Thanks for your answer. It's very helpful.
I'm playing with Gn15 scale trains and it's a very strange world...

Chef

I'd recommend you standardise on Kadee couplers, they are the original and best.

Bachmanns and MP knuckle couplers are surprisingly good. I have both Bmann and Model Power stuff both HO and On30 and they both work well with the other.

Greetings,

I also would strongly recommend that you standardize with Kadee Couplers. They work much better and do not fall apart like the Bachmann and MP will!

My suggestion, use the stock until they go bad, then upgrade to kadees.
