Kadee has announced a new #705 HOn3 coupler. This coupler is very similar in appearance to its HO scale #58/158 counterpart, and according to Kadee, "The #705 Metal Coupler will work anywhere a #713 or #714 Coupler will work...features an all metal coupler head, shank, and centering spring and comes complete with and insulated draft gearbox and lid."

That is nice. Variety in TT Scale that works together is always a good thing.

We have seen the 705 at the show in Salt Lake City. I don't have experience to judge for myself, but asked Bill Dixon. His opinion is that the coupler looks good but the box is too wide to be useful for TT.
