I don't think you can buy springs by themselves, but Farish do a pack of a few couplings with springs. Try ehattons.
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

I have no idea if they're available in the UK, but Kato sell packets of coupling springs which I've use in Farish couplings (part no. Z01-0042).

These springs are also the same as the Farish brush springs, so if you see a source selling those springs they will also suit.

Minimum order 5 plus P&P

It is therefore best to include these as part of a larger order
I bought three packs the last time, so far used one pack

This morning I tried to fit the coupling hooks supplied in the "bits bag" to a Farish "Richard Thomas" iron ore hopper.

It seems near nigh impossible without removing the coupling.

The coupling is of the new type, without a spring, which pivots from left to right.

Does anyone know whether the coupling can be removed by simply pulling it out of its pocket ?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,


Joe

If this is a new NEM style coupler then it should just pull out. Might need a tug as sometimes they can be tight.

Cheers,
Alan

Do you have an auction number for those springs on ebay? I tried to search 2ktechologies' ebay shop but couldn't find them. I searched under springs and then couplings.

Someone was recently telling me that Farish couplings are very hard to get hold of at the moment, something about them barely producing enough to fulfill the requirements of the new models they are releasing so very few are available as spares... anyone heard anything about this?
