I have never really done any scratch building but I wanted to have an uncoupler for my magnetic couplings that was a little different from the norm.

I only need some thing to put between the wagons to be uncoupled then just drive the engine away, I normally pull them apart but I wanted something to use for when I have people round to see my little lay out.

I made this at work in my dinner break using some scrap bit of metal and the machinery in our tool room. I then painted it at home and glued some coal onto it.

It is not very good  :oops: but it is my first bit of scratch building so I wanted to show it to you all.

John  :)

Very nice, but shouldn't that shovel have eggs and bacon on it ?

That is a great idea, that would look very different and would be easy to do with Milliput. I will make another next week and give it a go!
