I'm "restoring" several Lionel 529/530 - 629/630 4-wheel passenger cars. Some think the consist would look better if the coupled cars were closer together, including me.
So does anyone have a solution? Modify the CP-7 couplers? Different latch couplers? Any ramifications to shortening the distance (e.g., no longer able to negotiate O-27 curves)?
Anyone tackle this issue before?
