What couplers for On30?

I would like to replace the stock Bachmann couplers on my On30 equipment.  I would like couplers that look as good as what Erik is using on his HOn3 projects.  What can I use?

Uh... Sergent Couplers?

They're the only thing as good as Erik's...

S scale ones should work well for you:

Skibbe told me to try #58's, they are much better looking than #5's.

Sergent is out of the S scale couplers for a couple of months. :(

Some narrow gauge lines used smaller couplers than standard gauge specs.  So, the HO couplers would be your next best bet.

You're not doing D&RGW K-27's, so no real need for O scale couplers on On30.
