Hi All. After months nay years of debate I am ready to operate( play) a Shunting Puzzle . Kadee couplers being my preferred choice, and slowly I have been fitting most of my Wagon stock. Plus a couple of Bachmann 0-6-0’s and now for the big /small question . The Dapol/ ex Dapol L & Y  0-4-0 Pug , which to me looks lower? but it cannot be?It takes the regular “tension lock” , which of course works fine with the wagon that I haven’t fitted kadee to but when the tension lock is offered up to the Kadee Height Gauge they appear slightly different in height .
A simple answer would be a “Barrier Wagon” with a tension lock on one end, and the trusty Kadee on the open end trouble is that takes up space on a “Shunting Puzzle “. The barrier wagon may become essential once I have a 
DCC Decoder  fitted to the Loco if I connect extra pickups to the wagon once I sort out the flexible wire between the Loco and the wagon. Any advice would be appreciated .  Best wishes. Kevin

Staying on the thread Kevin.
