Thanks for the kind words Arthur, Frank, Carl and Mike. Off to order some decoders and more 20 HP Simplex Locomotives.

You certainly have an excellent "eye" for modeling and superb modeling too, Larry. I have enjoyed viewing your builds here.

Larry, every time I check out your thread, I'm blown away by the level of detail and by the level of modeling being displayed!
Keep this up and you will be promoted to a 4 star modeller!

Thanks Greg, Doc Tom and Rich. My Styrene appears to be going the USPS circuit. No progress.

Here is what it looked like on the Hun side. Believe my artillery are causing some damage in the first video.

Back to the coupler challenge.

The 3D printed couplers came in today and I was impressed.

Magnets fit in tightly



Designed wit an optional chopped link if I wanted to be accurate.



Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYvtitmKA_A , I can hint, I put 1lb of weight on a train and the engine could not pull the load or pull the rolling stock apart. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCaYTRMam1s

Larry, that looks good.

The second video appears to have cut off before the engine started moving. I think it was your intention to show the engine moving the 1 lb car?

Hi I don't think the engine could do much more than spin its drivers with all the weight. But the couplers remained intact. Very strong tiny magnets. Doc Tom

Correct, The engine just spun it wheels. No tiny sand could be applied to the tracks.

That coupler idea is great! The connection is very strong, how will you uncouple the cars?

The same way I have to uncouple link and pin couplers now, manually. It will be easier as now as I only have to pull the cars apart with my hands and not use tweezer and fling pins around the layout. Overall I am happy.

A friend is starting to model the USMRR during the Civil War in HO scale.
I sent him a link to your couplers here, suggesting he glue the pins in HO L&P couplers
and replace the links with tiny magnets. He'll be running short trains. I think this can
work for him without putting an eye out flinging microscopic pins everywhere. Thanks!

Larry, this is getting better all the time.
Those couples are very ingenious.
I enjoyed those WW1 videos too. 100 years old, and yet very good quality.
Interesting how wonky the track was.
And that damaged section they changed out. Wonder if it was Peco or Atlas.


Regards Rob

Despite the cost of living, It's still popular
