I do think the one illustrated is actually an early Graham Farish example rather than Peco. On the base it has moulded writing: "Made in England by Graham Farish". With the eye of faith you can make out "England" "Graham" "Farish" in the photo. There are also slight differences in the geometry of the box holding the coupler.

I bought a secondhand 7 plank version of this model in Beatties of Southgate on 12 December 1970, cost 5s 11d, and still have it although it is now heavily weathered with powders.






So it was Shrodinger's cat and you are showing it both alive and dead.

:sorrysign: msr you are right, I sit corrected  itís just that I have never seen Farish couplings like that before ,and Iíve been using N gauge for a long time longer than I care to remember .I do have lots of stock with the dropped loop couplings and some of the early spring couplings with the straight bar but none like that .

Have a vague memory of some IP implications using PECO elsie type coupling which was why Farish went through a couple of poor variations of the Rapido coupling.
To be called pompous and arrogant - hell of a come down.
I tried so hard to be snobbish and haughty.
