Allan sent me this little gem…
Did you see or hear about this yesterday? A Southern 455 EMU comes apart between second & third coach. Luckily was an ECS movement into Victoria.
For ECS read ’empty coaching stock’? When the same thing happens on our layout (or indeed yours if you like) we can say that we’re modelling a typical and prototypical Southern Railway movement. Or course, if you’ve fitted Dapol Scharfenberg couplers to your stock, you will already be familiar with accidental uncoupling!
