I was so inspired by Woodie's advice I set out early and found some standard flat plates, washers, a single chain link and a split pin to put together a link & pin system.

Some drilling and voila I think this is the answer to my grandson's woes (close to tears)  every time a wagon(s) uncouples.

The length from wagon chassis to split pin seems a bit much - will check with the existing plastic ones - don't want the distances between wagons to look unnatural or have him grow up with faked realities:)

Next is the wheelbase experiment.
