44-042 Lifting Jacks x 4
£9.95 (size: 16 x 23 x 50mm)
Found around locomotive depots and maintenance workshops, lifting jacks are commonly used to lift locomotives or coaches in order to remove them from their bogies or wheel sets. Once the vehicle has been lifted, the bogies can easily be rolled away allowing the necessary work to be undertaken, either to the bogies themselves or on the underside of the locomotive, coach etc. Jacks such as these will have proven invaluable to railway workshops and depots over the years and they are also a common sight on preserved railways.
44-537 Caged Gas Bottles x 4
Our caged gas bottles are the perfect accessory to bring any depot, workshop or industrial scene on your layout to life. Visit any railway site and you’re likely to see gas bottles stored ready for use when welding is required – a daily activity on most railways!
44-586 Ground Lever Frame & Board
£14.95 (Size: 40 x 20 x 28mm)
Points are a vital part of the railway as they enable trains to be guided from one track to another. On quieter lines, such as sidings, points are operated by line-side ground levers rather than signal boxes. This was because the expense and time required to build and man signal boxes in these less used areas could not be justified by the railway companies. Instead, the train crew would operate the points as and when required. Our ground lever frame is the perfect solution to re-create these scenes in model form and can be placed straight onto your layout.
