    G`day Pete,
    I tried your suggestion about drilling the hook. The hook is really a bit too thin. The flattening out is easy enough but there`s not much left to drill through. I think I`ll stick with the glue it to the sides of the hook method........We have to try these things......nothing ventured, nothing gained......thanks for the suggestion.

    G`day Martin,
    Good on you for having a go at the links. It`s easy when you know how.
    I am still not 100% sure about whether to bother with them actually. They certainly look good, but when I`m running a train I need to get down to rail level to appreciate them.......anyway that`s just me nit picking.!!!
    I suppose at the end of the day, when the wagons are sitting around in a yard, a casual look at the couplings at both ends tells the eye that all is complete.
    I think I just answered my own doubts.
    Maybe the next Gormo`s Shed should be about making your own chains...?????? :scratchchin:
