Great Northern buffer stop

by Tony Wilkins

Here's a couple of Great Northern buffer stops built from rail and Bill Bedford etches. Soldered assembly was used throughout, with thin double-sided copperclad in the attachment of the bufferbeam itself, to preseve the electrical separation of the running rails. Slide chairs (C&L) are used, as per the prototype.
