I guess, it's a question of terminilogy. When you said "new Tillig couplers must work with BTTB, it was taken to mean that one could couple them by bumping the cars together, and uncouple on the uncoupler. What seems to be the case, however, is that while it is possible to hook the couplers together and unhook them manually, they are not really compatible. Luckily, the decades of BTTB/Tillig production resulted in cars with spring mounted couplers, that can be fitted with either of the 3 versions, on either end, forming transition cars as required.

Transition cars are not really a problem. I have a few already:
Zeuke to BTTB
BTTB to Rokal
HP knuckle to HP Link
HP link to Kadee 713

I am simply tired of the spotty performance of the BTTB coupler, so I want to replace them with something more reliable. (Oddly enough, the Zeuke and Rokal couplers have given me less problems than the BTTB type, although Rokal couplers are not all that great about coupling without a little help.)

Does anyone here have any problems with the new Tillig couplers / any quirks I should know about?

G'day, I am converting all my stock to the new NEM couplers which all manufactures of TT are using. They are more positive and do not come undone without reason. The Tillig Part No for converting BTTB is 08847 for 10 and 08848 for 50

The new Tillig coupler works well, but it requires a proper setting (in german Kurzkupplungskulisse = KKK), that means an exact adjustment of the NEM-socket highness.

Both means the same, but literally it doesn't. It's a bit confusing. ;)

KKK not a good abbreviation in this country!

True, we would be better off with CCK on the English-language forum.
