    The buffer size might be a perspective thing, maybe brought on by the dual lens camera, they don't look that bad in real life

    Fantastic progress. I've been on holiday so it was pleasant surprise to catch up on this post. Love the uncoupler idea.

    Well, if the tension locks prove too much of a headache I might just stick some magnets in and make it a NSW layout.
    After all, I have the perfect loco, and plenty of 4 wheel stock for it. Might need a re-think on the scenery though.
    But I'm determined to get the tension lock idea to work, even if for operating sessions I limit it to one brand of rolling stock, i.e. all Mainline, Lima or Hornby, or I just tune a bunch to get them to play nicely with each other and keep it that way. The Mainline/Bachmann units are the most consistent, and keeping it Mainline would tick the cost reduction box as they can be got fairly cheaply, just modify some non-Mainline loco to have matching couplers might just be it.
    Cheers
