Re: Henley: Moving Goods and Brits

If you always run trains in same config. you can remove one of the hooks from TL couplings to reduce them interfering with each other. Most modern ones I've seen can be easily refiited if needs be (just don't throw them away!). Another trick I found was to bend the hooks inwards a little if the trai...
