Hi Dave, welcome to the forum glad you have moved over from the darkside.  If you can list the locos you are working on I'm sure the guys will point you in the right direction

Taylor Precision Models would be a good place to look for detailing parts such as screw couplings & buffers. Hoses & cables can be made up from fuse wire if you don't have any available, although most Farish locos now come with detailing kits.

If you're detailing an Arriva 57 and want to add Dellner couplings I've done a quick tutorial here:
