Adding the couplings

Yes, long time no post. The thought of making a mess on the last lap has been putting me off, but time to get a grip...

I've described my 3-link couplings elsewhere. I understand that 08's often had Instanter or 3-links hanging on the hooks, thereby almost hiding the screw couplings so to keep things simple I'm just going to use 3-links.

There's a lot of gubbins to avoid under a loco chassis, so I've made sure the back of the hooks are bent tight against the bufferbeams.
