0 Gauge Chassis kits and Accessories for scratchbuilders and kit modification. This pack contains sufficient components to assemble four pairs of 3- link 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.

PECO has always been a forward-looking family company with a long tradition of innovative thinking. The business started trading in 1946 and is now in its third generation.
From early days, PECO has concentrated its manufacturing skills on producing trackwork for the model railway enthusiast. Individual component parts was how it started, but this developed into HO/OO ready-made track with fibre sleepers. With plastics becoming more popular in the 1960s, PECO decided to introduce the famous Streamline range, which over the years has become one of the world’s leading brands for not just HO/OO but all scales from Z to G.
PECO currently produces no less than 20 track ranges, featuring both standard gauge and narrow gauge systems, plus a wide selection of complementary accessories and items to add scenic detail to your layout.
