Thanks for the complement.
I will have to learn how to make videos of BPRC trains actually running.

One project I would like to try would be a BPRC coupling that would work (almost) anywhere on the layout including DC and DCC layouts.
 
AS my layout is UK based it would be based on the much maligned tension lock.
The idea being to use a servo to raise the coupling hook.

A scratch build would be needed.
I am thinking brass tube for the pivot and brass rod for the hook.

Initial problems are I know nothing about soldering brass and need a really fine saw.
I saw a jewellers one on TV that looked just like a wire.
It probably costs a fortune.

Perhaps the initial prototype should be at a larger scale.
