They do, many companies In fact….Intermountain, Tangent, ExactRail, Kadee (of course), Rapido (they use Kadee as well as their own McDonald Cartier coupler), Walthers Proto, Walthers Mainline, Bowser....

Now if only the other big players would….Athearn, Atlas and Bachmann would…..

Which I find strange…..sure, the car costs a little less, but they end up getting Kadees anyway (at least mine do), so the total cost may even be higher (car plus customer supplied Kadee’s) than if the manufacturer supplied them….

And they gotta know that most people prefer Kadees, that is, if they are paying attention…. :rolleyes:
