Now this is Cool!

This little video clip shows a feature available on some European models;

What you`re seeing is a 3 axle switcher shove a cut of cars and then F2 was double tapped in the controller. The coupler disengages and then the loco rolls back a little bit and stops.
This feature works on either end of the unit, as well as being available to couple onto a cut of cars.
I found that I was using that feature quite a lot while switching cars in the station area of Holstedt, the Fremo module set created by Dieter Petschallies, the father of my friend in Hamburg who was also my host for the 2 weeks I was in Germany.
Here`s a couple more images of Holstedt for you.
More posts to come today perhaps.
