The German Albert coupling for connecting two trams, transmits both tensile and compressive forces. Named after its inventor Karl Albert, a former director of the Krefeld tram. The magnetic coupling from HALLING Modelle combines all the advantages of the new direction-independent coupling technology described with a fine, exemplary design!

Due to the simple but manual coupling process, the Albert coupling became widespread in Germany and was only replaced by the advent of modern automatic couplings such as the Scharfenberg coupling. As an emergency coupling for towing maneuvers in the event of technical faults or accidents, it is still used on newer low-floor railway models such as the Transtech Artic or the Bombardier Flexity 2.
