Product Description

Buffers for GER coaches of the 19th century: set of 20 buffer-guides. Turned heads/rams (as sold by MJT and Alan Gibson Workshop: 0.9mm outside diameter of ram and 12" heads) and springs are needed to complete. 

These buffers are thought to be a standard fitting for 4-wheeled and 6-wheeled coaches of the GER. Dimensions were taken from GER 4-wheeled all-first number 19 which is preserved at the East Anglian Museum. The length from headstock to buffing face was 20". On the coach measured, the securing nut nearest the coupling hook is aligned with the horizontal centreline of the buffer. The thick flange at the base of the buffer was cast; there was no wooden pad to extend the buffer length. Company initials are cast into this flange (they are there in the model but may not print legibly) and the EARM have these letters picked out in white; I do not know if this was normal practice of the GER.

I thank the East Anglian Railway Museum for allowing me track-level access to make photographs and measurements. Particular thanks are due to Peter Martin of the restoration team for his help and advice.
