Our coupling hooks,
rectangular wagon pockets and links of fine chemically blackened chain make up
into superb 3-link couplings.
Original fine chain - in either blackened copper or soft iron.
48 links - enough for 8 pairs of couplings.
Prototype chain - with thicker (scale)
links - in either blackened copper or soft iron. 36 links - enough for 6 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.
