QUOTE (Makemineadouble @ 20 Aug 2007, 07:03) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I've used the electro magnetic version in one location on a previous layout, it worked very well but for simplicity I prefer the simple magnetic block glued between the rails (#321)and if your couplers are at the right hight no problems.

I have tried the electromagnetic uncoupler but could never get it to work properly, plus it requires extensive carve up of the baseboard. I also tried permanent magnet uncouplers but they have an annoying tendency to uncouple when you don't want them to. Now I use a bamboo skewer twisted and twiddled between the jaws of the coupling. Theres a lot to be said for low tech.
