Just completed display at the 54th Atlanta Train Show, and for the most part, things went quite well, and we have received confirmation of a space to display TT scale at the upcoming Atlanta Model Train Show in March, 2018 as well.

Okay,

I am working on a video presentation that covers the Kadee 713/714 coupler and compares against MIcro-Trains couplers. Is there any particular points that anyone wants me to cover on that?

I think of some points, but these are also covered by a comparison (possibility of coupling between Kadee and MTL, sizes of the knuckles respectively of the couplers, different type of coupler models on the side of MTL, coupler distance between cars).

Which points do you have planned?

Mainly I wanted to provide information about the two coupler types, how they will link to one another if installed correctly, and how to install them, as well as a few examples of the couplers installed.
Basically stuff that I wish I knew earlier, that might be of help to those considering the jump to TT scale.
