> It is the norm of the European Union of Model Railroad and Railroad Friends (MOROP). And it is standard at commercial models. The NEM 358 is the coupling pocket. The opposite is NEM 357. -MacG <

I reviewed those pages, they helped. Thanks much.

Don't know if this will be informative for members here, but spotted this comment about NEM couplers/coupling and USA modeling on the "n_scale" yahoo list yesterday:

Adapters between magnetic knuckle couplers (USA) and NEM couplers (E
For the first time I found magnetic knuckle couplers that fit in european NEM sockets. All european manufacturers are using NEM couplers in their recent models.

I think this should be good news for USA modelers that want to run trains from Europe. I bought some couplers from England (DAPOL is the manufacturer and the item is NSPARE7). I'm going to start testing them in a few days.

I uploaded several files about USA Micro-Trains couplers and Europe NEM couplers:

If you are going to test them, please give some feedback to this group.
