Complete Parts Request: Train Buffer Beam

RE: Parts Request: Train Buffer Beam
More on the Train Buffers and Magnets... seems it escalated a bit  Smile  

We do have part 2920, 'Train Coupling Type 2' which has no shortcuts including the magnet as compared to 4023, 'Train Coupling Type 1', which has two shortcuts (c01 and c02)

Part 2920, however, has some quirks in its geometry. e.g. the magnet is currently loose in its position and might "slip" out. SO I took my calipers out to change it. While doing so I noticed that the pin of the magnet should be of a slightly larger diameter, but that would break some dependencies or existing shortcuts, so I left it as it is.

Nevertheless, I changed 2920, as pictured below, which has currently no shortcuts and the existing favorable magnet position should not be impacted too much.

We should add at least two shortcuts, c01 and c02 for Pulling and Idle Position. Question is do we want to have c03 as well, that would be the magnet pushed to the end of the hole?

I would then request Chris to resubmit 2920 and upload the shortcuts...
