My first trial to get delayed un-coupling of Egger-Bahn style loop-and-hook coupler(6)

Since I began to use the erectoromagnet to reverse the v-tipper, I removed the permanentmagnet buried under the railtrack.
Now, the coupler attached the permanentmagnet can be used.

I noticed that the erectoromagnet to reverse the v-tipper could be used also to perform my delayed uncoupling idea.
It's an unexpected pleasure.


The simple uncoupling of the loop-and-hook coupler can be performed by inserting a small ferrite magnet between coupler wires.

My first trial to get delayed un-coupling of Egger-Bahn style loop-and-hook coupler(5)

Some supplementary explanations

You should attach about 3.5mm thin wire under the hook so that the tractor and trailer may not re-join together, when carrying delayed uncoupling.

Since TOMIX uncoupler's magnetic power is very strong, as for the light trailer, the iron-wire loop will be drawn close.

One of solutions is using the electric magnet uncoupler.
While turning off the switch, the uncoupler does not do mischief.
But, it’s somewhat extravagant for mini-layout like mine.
Another is adding a small stopper of thin wire on the head of hook.
It’s simple and costless.

It succeeded in delayed un-coupling.

But there is a point which should be improved in this system.
When a tractor pulls a freight car and runs over a magnet, it deserts freight car apart.
Next time, I'll tell about a solution.

Arnold type coupler with magnet by Tomix JPY252with two pieces 

I bought these yesterday. These items can be used for delayed uncoupling.

First, I shaved the head part of Arnold type coupler and manipulated. Next, I glued the head part of egger-bahn style coupler with it.

It operates well.
