24 coupling hooks and 12
rectangular wagon pockets plus 48 links of very fine chain to make up
pairs of 3-link couplings with 12 spare links. We recommend that the pairs of hooks are
folded to form a double thickness, soldered together, and filed for a
prototypically thick hook.
Fine chain - in either copper or soft iron.
48 links - enough for 8 pairs of couplings.
Etched in 12 thou brass
this useful etch consists of 24 coupling hooks and associated
rectangular wagon pockets. Hooks are arranged so they can easily be
folded to form a double thickness, soldered together and filed to
prototypically thick hook; alternatively they can be fitted through the
pockets singularly. The hooks are based on prototype drawings and
feature a generous 'mouth' capable of accepting quite thick coupling
links. The hole for the link is etched to accept 0.7mm links.
