I think the Bemo coupling can be modified in the same way, I remember operating an Austrain layout which used Liliput and Bemo couplers and had "under the track" magnets to uncouple.

I have seen that - adding a small piece of iron wire to the Bemo - very fiddly though

Thanks

You need to take the metal coupler head off to do it, not so fiddly then!

You can also have magnetic uncoupling with the Peco NEM couplers by using one of their track pins. It needs to be glued at an angle on one side of the loop, in a similar way to the Greenwich ‘hanger’.

You can also have delayed uncoupling with the Greenwich, I haven’t tried this though.
