I want to build a new passenger train. To make it more realistic I want the train cars pushed together. I've seen many solutions, most of them with rubber belts. I don't want to use rubber belts, so I designed something in MLCad:
What I want: since I don't have some of the required pieces, I kindly want to ask anybody if you want to help me and test if this coupling works. If the walking corridors (like in the Metroliner and Santa Fe) are pushed together, but if a train with this can run smoothly over curves and points. I want it to be used with this part. Not exactly, but the truck distance is the same. I noticed the turntable needs an additional plate for this base. If anyone would test it for me, I would be a very happy man. Details (for example building instructions) can be handled with PM. Other similar solutions are also welcome.

Where would you place the edges of the cars on your coupling i wonder? As the edges of the cars make up the space in between and the turning range i think?
The build a frigate tutorail!

Other solutions are also welcome, but I'm not gonna use rubber belts, and I don't want the spring pieces built in the car itself.
*Edit: I now shortened the coupling with two studs (the 3x2 plates with hole closer to the truck). It still can't fit in a S-curve.
