Couplings

Question

Hi all,

I've recently started making some Parkside Dundas 00 gauge kits - and super little kits they are too.

However, I'm unsure what route to go down with the couplings. All my stock currently has the standard tension locks, but I find that, when I've shunted on previous layouts I hate how fiddly they are (not to mention their lack of aesthetic appeal).

I've seen lots about Kadees - but they confuse me with all the different types and how you go about installing/aligning them. I think I''m leaning this way though?

I'd also been pondering three link? Do it the way it's done in real life and use a 'hand in the sky' shunters pole? Thoughts?

So, what's the best method?

Thanks in advance,

Chris

Hi.

 

Have you considered fitting NEM pockets?

 

Then you have the choice of a lot of coupling types, including Tensiin Lock and Kadee couplings...

 

Parkside make the mountings...

 

Also see here?

 

Regards,

 

Sarah.
