You could tape a small flashlight to an uncoupling hook.

" But am i wrong in that one would need good lighting (at night) for even Kadee couplers? "
I fiddled around on my old 1:24n3 car-builds, with 3 different coupler types.
1. Link n Pin - Russ Simpsons 1:24 Westside Lumber Company ones.
2. 'Realistic' Knuckle - Precision Scale 1:24 Brass 4-piece Castings.
3. Kadee Knuckle.
I like both the Russ Simpson & Precision Scale Couplers a lot.
The PSc ones were CRAZY expensive though, although my car production speed was slow.
The Russ Simpsons looked very nice for WSLCo. equipment.
In the end though, it was the chunky ol' Kadee 'G' scale couplers that made it on to the cars.
They didn't look brilliant on 1:24n3 'fine-scale' cars ... But they worked GREAT !

much appreciated. while, for some tortuous reason, the link and pin or something of that type appeals to me I am probably going to go with Kadee.
Would you do 1 scale vs G scale to make the look a bit better?
