Can any one advise me of a maker or seller of individual brass (non-magnetic) links for 3 link couplings for 0 gauge.

I think you might have to make your  own. Its pretty simple but it can be a ball ache. We used to make our own out of 0.75 brass wire but it got to labour intensive so we found a supplier of iron ones.

I've just opened a packet of Parkside Dundas Instanter couplings (PS82) which have brass links in.

They're not hard to make. Use a fine pair of round-nosed pliers and a flush cutter and you can make they fairly quickly from 0.4 or 0.5mm brass rod.

I prefer nickel silver, which I wind round a 13mm x 64mm slug of brass before cutting with an X-acto blade.
