Flywheels

We produce two sizes of turned brass flywheel to fit our units, all of which are available separately. The 22.0 mm flywheel is only available with a 2mm bore and fits the JH, Mashima and Canon motors. The 28.5 mm flywheel is available with a 2 mm bore, fitting the JH motor, or 2.5mm and 3 mm bores, fitting the appropriate version of the Crailcrest motor. These flywheels can also be used with any other motor with an armature shaft with the appropriate bore.

Couplings

Two types of coupling are available and are supplied as pairs.

A single link coupling made of pressed steel, fitted to the vehicle body by a single screw/bolt (not supplied). It is similar in design to those used on tinplate models, and can assist in preventing buffer locking when long wheel based vehicles are pushed.

A lost wax brass casting sprue which makes into a screw link coupling set and requires self assembly. Fitting is done through the coupling pocket of the vehicle; springs and split pins are supplied.

Fulgarex Point Motors

We are suppliers of the popular Fulgarex Point Motor which can be used to operate signals, level crossing gates and other structures as well as points in any gauge. The unit can be mounted either on top of the baseboard or below, and comes with a length of brass wire and tube to connect the point to the motor from underneath.

The unit comes complete with microswitches for point frog current switching as well as other uses. There is provision for adding an extra set of contacts to the microswitch assembly, and these are also available from us.

Instructions are available in English, French and German.

Storage Boxes

We supply three sizes of strong card boxes that are suitable for storing the appropriate size locomotive, coach or wagon.  It should be noted that some very large tender locomotives will not fit in the large box with their tender eg. The Southern Railway “Lord Nelson” class, so separate boxes may be required for the locomotive and tender.

Due to their bulk, we do not normally send these items by mail order, but always have stock at exhibitions.  Should a number of boxes be required at an exhibition the customer is attending, a call to us beforehand would be appreciated so that we can prepare the order prior to delivery at the show. The internal dimensions (nominal) of the three sizes of storage box are as follows:
