3 link couplings are Smiths, screw couplings are exactoscale with steel or soft iron wire bottom links so that coupling can be done with a magnetic shunting pole.

Now I know how it's pronounced! Will soak up the video later.

How big is your (Dunster House?) building Steve?

Hi Steve,

Just had a watch. All I can say is, inspiring. Great to see accurate operation. Love to see more at some point.

All the best,

John.

Excellent video Steve. Thoroughly absorbing. Particularly liked the J39 banker dropping off the coal train.

Cheers...Morgan

Great video, very enjoyable. Good to see both the usual operations, plus those not often modelled such as the banking.
Thanks,
Bryan

Very nice!
That looks a lovely bolthole to play trains in.
I enjoyed the presentation, great stuff.

Very nice video, Steve. There's been lots of progress since my last visit. The chap standing on the footbridge looks pretty pleased with it all ;)

Excellent video Steve, just like standing and watching at a show but with a personal commentary.

Hi Robin
Thank you for your kind comments.
Yes, that's me on the footbridge - a Modelu 3D scan.
I really need a model of myself as an 8 year old youngster to place on the layout!

Hi Steve,
I thought it might be. I've been told I need one of myself for Barrow Road but a younger version.
Unfortunately Alan isn't a miracle worker :-)
