Can I use any couplers to couple all same scale model trains ?

Question by : Can I use any couplers to couple all same scale model trains ?
Can you couple horn hook coupler rolling stock trains to a locomotive with a knuckle coupler ?

I bought 3 new rolling stock ho scale freight cars and want to hook them to a new ho scale locomotive with knuckle couplers ?

I understand that some couplers are considered to be better or easier to use than others but I only plan on a 36 inch circular track so will all couplers couple on all same scale trains ?

Can I still use my new locomotive to pull my new freight cars even though they have different styles of couplers ?

If not, how difficult is it to convert a locomotive knuckle coupler to a horn and hook coupler to pull my horn and hook trains ?

Get rid of the horn couplers and replace with Knuckle couplers. KADEE web site will tell you the model to purchase depending on the model of stck car purchased.
