The new close coupler head is specially planned for newly designed locomotives with prototypically lower buffer beams and thereby lower buffer heights above the top edge of the rail (according to NEM 303). This is to ensure the required freedom of movement for the coupler system below the buffer plates. This new close coupler head is compatible with all available Märklin couplers.
