This is fantastic...just like the real thing.

were the cars uncoupled before the train reached the top of the hill?

@Mr No
I love that Pointsman and he must be remote controlled to move to the 3 different positions too. Wonder how he managed to find a character that fit perfectly on the lever like he was made for it.


@Leyland
Its looks like he has uncoupled the cars and...turned them around as the Hooked end of the coupler is now facing away from the engine. What I would like to see is videos of how he made all those custom freight cars.

Added Note:
I am no so sure this video is the property of this YouTubers or someone elses. I have no proof just a hunch especially since in 360p and it was just Posted.

That's some incredibly well planned automation for Plarail. Stop/gos and 3 way points are fairly simple to motorize, but it looks like they (somehow) modified a stop/go to act as a decoupler. From what I could see, they didn't replace any of the couplings with magnetic ones and the trucks clearly don't "sway" while being pushed, meaning they weren't simply uncoupled beforehand. I have no idea how they made a decoupler for hook and loop couplings, especially given how strong Plarail ones tend to be. Hopefully someone here might have a mechanically plausible theory.
