Re: Remote Decoupling
I think you blokes are making mountains out of mould hills, for starters where are you going to hide this equipment on a empty flat car or in a empty gondola?? plus there are a lot of "what ifs" trying to use a complex system, not to mention the cost, if you stop and consider for awhile, you are not going to be making cuts in a train at random locations along the main line, you are going to be only making cuts at certain locations such as at a siding where you need to detach a car into the siding, so in other words at a "set" location, likewise at depots where you maybe changing locomotives, again at a "set" location, concepts and theories are wonderful thoughts, but they're not always practical, there's an old saying in industry, "stick with the KISS program", KISS stands for "Keep It Simple Stupid"toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
