Ever thought of demonstrating at Scaleforum I for one would love to sit down and watch/have a go
The proof of the pudding is on an operating layout.
One of the limitations of a demonstration at Scaleforum is that you are showing the couplings on a short length of straight track, in near perfect conditions.
When demonstrating the 'Burford' coupling last weekend, I was well aware of this, and simply had to ask people to accept my explanation of how these couplings operate on curves, particularly when fitted to bogie vehicles. I will deal with these points in the write-up, but they are not capable of being demonstrated except on an exhibition layout. (The Burford Branch, as I have mentioned, is an entirely home-based layout, and is incapable of being transported to exhibitions.)
