Chris, the additions to the station look great. Can we see a video of the uncouplers in action?
Alex, I’m with Bob, what are you up to on your layout?
Andy, I shot some video about 11 months ago, when I started installing the 805 couplers and 809 uncouplers. I'll shoot some more, but the 809 uncouplers, in this video were the first ones I built this way. Ordered a bunch of different Neodymium magnets, set up a test track on the bench, and then when I started getting repeatable results, I installed them in the yard. If you go to the 2:45 time mark in the video, you can see how the "delayed" coupling works with this set up. The 809 is mounted where the small piece of wood and blue masking tape is.
Make sure to check the resolution in the YouTube settings, it was shot at 1080p which helps see what's going on. Everytime I log on it defaults to a lower resolution playback.
I remember your original posting about this and I watched your video when you originally posted it as well. Where exactly did you install the magnets? Also, does it matter where you install the uncouplers? My apologies if you already discussed this.
