I love that tunnel, very clever use of free material. I love your thrift and wish I had your skills with natural, you make it look so easy.

Just like the real thing, you are deploying pragmatic solutions - hence they look natural and fit into the overall appearance
Where did I put that uncoupler?

Summer is sizzling here in Oklahoma. Much to warm to go outside and work on the railway... or do much of anything outdoors unnecessarily.

With that said, I ordered some coupler pockets from Pas in Sri Lanka. LINK. These run $7.50USD per dozen. I ordered three dozen.

Placed the order June 9. After the expected arrival date came and went I sent a message to find out their whereabouts. As Sri Lanka was experiencing a postal strike a few days after they were shipped, their location could not be determined. Pas offered a refund but I opted instead to continue waiting as by the time we conversed the strike had ended and surely were on their way.

That was last week. Today the couplers arrived and I sent a message to Pas to inform him of their arrival. :thumbright:

Well, thats a first ( for me anyway), never realised that anyone in Sri Lanka was into model railway parts!

They look good and better value than my lgb versions :cry:

We are having an unusually dry summer although school holidays are approaching fast so we will probably revert to rain :scratch:

Are these couplers a resin mould or 3D printed?

We had rain yesterday for the first time in weeks, but it’s now back to the heat again this morning.

They appear to be molded.
