Better Vids of Uncouplers in Use and "Behind the Scenes."

Managed to squeeze in and get a more direct shot of the uncouplers working.  Also a shot of a "Mk II" control rod working the lifting ramp.

The rod is longer and has a curve that levels back to a horizontal plane - this results in a gentler lifting of the spherical pinhead. 

You can see a MkI rod in the background, they work well but there is very slight resistance sometimes because they "push" the pin rather than guide it. 

I also added a third hinge barrel along the length of the shaft, this minimises bending in the longer brass rods.
