The first photo is the reject yes narrow gauge but not field railways the last 2 are the accepted versions.

Kim- Nice couplers.
What is the finish on Mable's couplers?
Is it scratch-resistant?

Great work Volker.
So a narrow gauge 2 foot or 600 mm gauge turnout. It started out as a common cheap Peco electric fog code 100 turnout sharp radius. What I did was to cut out most of the plastic except for the fog and the spring-loaded point blades . The new bits are the wooden ties ground throw and of course the weeds. Two wires operate the whole thing the route is set by the point blades, size 300 mm long by 150 mm wide.
All the best and have a great weekend Kim.
