Hi everyone! I am new to the forum here. I just set up my Tyco train set that I had when I was a kid (1980s). It is the Railmaster 102 with the Virginian locomotive. Everything still works great after all these years. However I am in need of couplers for my cars. I am not sure what type they are or where to get them. Any help would be appreciated. I have pictures.

Hi, welcome to the forum! Those are called horn hook couplers. They were the standard in HO for years. Your example is missing the little spring-tab on the end. Ebay is your best bet, unless someone here has a stash. You just need to keep an eye on the portion of the coupler which mounts to the car to be sure you're buying the correct style.

These look to be compatible:
