Alex, did you retire this layout after the show? I enjoyed reading the thread. I'm sure I learned something, but most of the discussions were beyond where I am (and maybe where I'm going!).

No Leon, Tremierten has at least one show to go to next year, I don't do that many as I have commitments with full size steam as well

Alex, sorry for not responding in a more timely manner. I'm glad you've not retired the layout, and I'll be looking back from time to time for inspiration. I'm getting close to modelling some of my buildings. If only I'd stop changing my track plan! I thought that when I glued it down I'd be finished, but glue hasn't been enough!  :D  If I don't run into problems when I next run my trains I am finished - this time. With every change I've seen improvement, but life is too short to dwell too long on one aspect.

This is a lovely little layout,

Did you get far with making NEM fitted stock work for remote uncoupling?

This is a lovely little layout,

Did you get far with making NEM fitted stock work for remote uncoupling?

the system I use will work with all of the various incarnations of the Arnold style coupling with one exception, namely the early Graham Farish couplings with the awful plastic loop - I do not have many of these, and they are banned from Tremierten!. one other tip, I found that on some wagons, specifically the latest GW toad brake van the scale coupling hook gets in the way of the upward travel of the Arnold coupling and I have had to reluctantly remove them. coaches require some fiddling with too, which means a little judicious filing on the head and sometimes the shank of the coupling in order that they lift far enough to clear the loco couplings which are left unmodified as they generally will not lift sufficiently anyway.

Hope this helps,

Alex
