I am looking at a rather simple EOT marking devise. Basically a red flag stuck into the coupler.
Basically this is a bit of shim brass wrapped on one edge around a brass rod and soldiered. The shim brass is the size of the flag and folded and otherwise shaped to look like it is hanging limp. The base of the brass rod would have a blob of “something” shaped to fit into the closed coupler. The brass rod would be attached to the said blob of “something”.
There can be variations to this mounting method. The rod could be passed through and attached to a flange that sits atop the coupler at an angle to represent a flag that had flopped over to one side a bit. The shim brass of the flag would then be shaped to the proper limp look.
A handful of these is all that are needed for my layout. Easy to make. Easy to install and uninstall. Very much an added touch on the mixed train daily except Sunday service on my layout.
