Before I show the PHD buffers here are a couple of photos of the nearly finished set of buffers in position at the end of the head shunt.

Two sets of buffer stops on Barrow Road are very similar to the design catered for by Pete Harvey's etch, which consists of a set of suitably shaped brass plates and rail jigs.

The following series of photos give an idea of the build sequence.

Two pads of double sided pcb have been added to the beam in order to insulate it and prevent sorting across the buffer stop.

This is my method of ensuring everything is soldered up nice and square using a variety of track jigs.

Here are two of the PH Design and two of my fabricated buffers, the latter with a coat of matt balck paint.

Robin,

 

Yes, that number of gauges and clips should keep things nicely square and in position! My arrangements were a bit more Heath Robinson!

 

All coming along nicely.

 

Dave.
