This really looks a mess. The trouble is that there are two different aesthetics in conflict with each other. Or has the cover fallen off the gubbins? If it hasn't, then it is pointless giving the train a sexy front end.
These trains below, with simple, functional front ends, have exactly the same coupling so there is no necessity for the thing to look so awful.
