L&B style buffer stop

NPC-016 • by Narrow Planet

This concrete buffer stop is based on a design used on the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway. Each kit consists of a choice of straight or slope backed body, and includes two cross pieces (one wide and one narrow). This should cover the variations seen on the L&BR, but they are also suitable for use on any freelance narrow gauge light railway.

Note that the buffer stop is designed to be mounted onto the same surface as Peco track as this will correctly position the face of the buffer stop in line with Greenwich style couplings allowing the loop to gently slide over the top. This doesn't, however, result in a block of the correct prototypical height. For those wishing to more accurately model the L&B the main block should be mounted on top of Peco sleepers which will raise the block to almost exactly the correct height.
