    2019-1-31 · Dingham Autocouplers. The Dingham Autocoupler is probably the least obtrusive commercially available automatic coupler for model railway vehicles in 7mm scale (O gauge) and 4mm scale (00, EM and P4/S4). It also has the advantage of a delayed uncoupling action without the need to move the shunting loco back and forth to operate the delay mechanism.

    2019-1-31 · The Dingham Autocouplers rely on the buffers on vehicles for buffing, just as 3-link and screw couplings do, i.e. the Dingham couplers do nothing to prevent buffer locking. This means that restrictions on propelling and pulling trains through trackwork are the same as for 3-link/screw couplings.

The coupling is designed to be worked via under track magnets but I wanted to be able to uncouple anywhere on the layout by remote.

It is compatible with three link couplings so if it fails at a show, it’s not the end of the world, and it’s relatively inexpensive.
