    Wallymart has train sets CN , F7 eight wheel drive. Two kankee cars, a hopper {green} and I think the other was a tank {too many head injuries} and a CN van. Knuckle couplers although I'm not sure who's $ 49.99 CDN.
    I'd make a poor witness.

    If it's a Bachmann set, I'd bet the couplers are Bachmann EZ-Mate.

    For some reason, they also seem "soft" - they kind of stretch, and bend a bit. I have to find that set of #58's I was saving for my ten-wheeler - the EZ-Mate on the tender is no longer functioning reliably...
