I intend to run the coach with the guard's section at the rear and at this end I have fitted a scale T&D chopper coupling from a John Campbell cattle wagon kit. Once the exterior details were fitted, the steps (included as part of the etch) were folded up into the correct position.
To mount the bogies I cut some wooden cross pieces, drilled in the centre to take some threaded rod, 2.5mm dia. just because I happened to have some. The rod was anchored with a nut and then the bogie mount (is it called a bolster?) was super glued in place over this with the rod protruding through. The assemblies were glued in place under the coach floor and the bogies were then fitted on to these and secured with nuts.
Due to the sharp curves on the TBLR I have fitted the coupling at the loco end to an extension arm supplied with the bogie kit. I extended the arm with a scrap of brass so that it protruded beyond the headstock and fitted an Accucraft chopper coupling to this, minus its mounting unit. This coupling follows the centre line of the track even on the sharpest curves. I have positioned this coupling as close to the headstock as possible so that a near scale appearance is achieved on straight track at least.
