Newsletter June 2014


With this issue of our Newsletter, we are commencing a series of occasional special offers on stock products:

 20% Off - 5" Gauge BR / LMS type Locomotive Buffers (Turton & Platt type round head)

This month, we are featuring the 5" gauge BR / LMS (Turton & Platt) type round head locomotive buffers. For a limited period, these buffers  - normal price £72.50 per set 4 - are available with a 20% reduction down to just £58.00.

We have a limited number of sets in stock, after which there may be a short wait while we machine some more - so get in quick if you have a project waiting for some rather nice buffers!

The discount is only available up to the 31st July, so don't miss out! You will find the buffers in our web-shop here:

Here is the detailed description for these buffers:

  *  Internally sprung,
  *  One piece CNC turned stocks, CNC turned heads.
  *  Suitable for a large range of both steam and diesel locomotives.
  *  Pre-drilled back plate with locating boss.

This design of buffer will suit the following locomotives (not an exhaustive list):


    LMS Ivatt Class 2 Tank and Tender
    LMS 3F (Jinty)
    LMS 4F
    LMS Black Five
    LMS 8F
    LMS Jubilee
    LMS Patriot
    BR Standard 2 Tank and Tender
    BR Standard 3 Tank
    BR Standard 5
    BR Standard 6 (Clan)
    BR Standard 7 (Britannia)
    BR 9F

    BR Class 02
    BR Class 08
    BR Class 09
    BR Class 44
    BR Class 45
    BR Class 46


As a result of a request from a customer in Canada, we have just completed some LMS Carriage style buffers. These will now be added to our growing range of buffer types. Initially available in 7 1/4" gauge, the buffers would make a very attractive and authentic addition, or upgrade, to a variety of rolling stock using this type of buffer.

Just to get you thinking, we wanted to just put it out there that we are working on the development of a new 5" gauge Diesel Locomotive, to follow on from our Class 20. So, watch this space........... :-)


That's all for now. As always, please get in touch if you have any questions - we are always delighted to hear from you.
