Hello 34c

At last! There are some other people as mad as me! I thought I was the only one bothering to shorten standard couplings - what a difference it makes! Shortening the distance between wagons is the single biggest improvement you can make to modern RTR stock - apart from weathering !

I have a rake of 35 Bachmann 16ton minerals and with their close coupling they lokk great snaking through pointwork.

Some many of the Country's best layouts ( even Dewsbury Midland ) are spoiled for the sake of a few hours work close coupling the stock. I plan to have a simple "before and after" on my layout so people can see the difference for themselves.
