Kit and Scratch builder's accessory. Pack contains sufficient parts for 2 pairs of Couplings. The "Instanter" coupling is a development of the standard 3 link coupling. The middle link of the chain is specially shaped so that when lying flat it provides enough slack to make coupling possible, but when this middle link is rotated 90 degrees the length of the chain is effectively shortened, reducing the amount of slack to provide closer coupling, to allow the use of train brake pipes without the need to wind a screw. It can also be coupled from the side of the wagons using a shunter's pole; much safer than having to go between vehicles when coupling them together.
Recommended to be used with:
PECO 0 Code 124 Setrack and Streamline Code 124 and code 143 Flexible track systems

Parkside Dundas was formed in 1986, when the two partners Richard Hollingworth and Andrew Hastie combined their businesses. Richard made plastic injection mouldings, mostly for the electronics industry, but had also started on his Parkside 4mm scale 00 gauge wagon kits. Andrew ran Dundas Models, which concentrated on 009 narrow gauge models and which had introduced the pioneering Dundas range of kits.
In the last two decades, Parkside Dundas has continued to steadily expand on its foundation 00 and 009 ranges, adding a small N gauge range as well as an ever-growing commitment to 7mm scale O gauge.
In 2017, the Parkside range of standard gauge kits was sold to PECO and is now produced at the Ratio and Wills factory at Buckfastleigh.
