  • What are 3 link couplings? - Upstairs Downstairs - Model ...

    Some model railway enthusiasts prefer the look of these couplings as they are as near to the real thing as you can get. The couplings look great, the only drawback is the uncoupling process as it can prove to be a bit fiddly removing the chain link from the hook. Most modellers have made their own uncoupling tool to alleviate this problem.

  • 3 link couplings

    2011-3-20u2002·u2002I use Smiths for 3 links and for instanters and Romford for screws. Both can be obtained in most good model shops. The smiths couplings are nice and fine, although the Romford screws are slightly chunky. I wouldn't use Romford 3 links as they are way over scale. Back in the 70's, my father had some scale 00 screw couplings which actually worked.

  • 3-ShackleScrewCouplings - Model Railways On-Line

    These locos were formally used for shunting in Southampton Docks and were fitted with simple 3-link couplings. Possibly the Bluebell used a spare pair of couplings to enable it to be used on passenger trains. I suppose the lesson to be learnt from all of this is don't blindly fit screw couplings to models of Southern locomotives without checking.

  • 3 link coupling chain. - New Railway Modellers Forums

    2018-8-28u2002·u2002I will use it for chain strap downs, on wagon loads. There is a few suppliers on Ebay that sell ready painted (black,rusty red). Chain is defined by the wire thickness and the width/length of a link, or sometimes by how many links per inch. 3 link is something like 6-12inch link length, so you need 2 to 4mm links (for OO) = 6 to 12 links per inch.

These couplings followed earlier tramway practice but were made more regular. The cars are coupled by hand using hook and link system with a turnbuckle-like device that draws the cars together.
