Beaver Kit Built Coaches
« on: November 02, 2017, 05:51:03 pm »
Hi,   :helpneededsign:

I have 2 of the above suburban coaches but during house move the couplings from one of them have gone missing, does anyone have a pair or can they recommend an alternative. Have tried normal Farish and all alternatives I have.

Building layout in attic - at last!!

Is it possible to fit NEM pockets, if so you can use Dapol or Farish NEMs.

Alternatively fit couplings at one end of each coach and use a permanent bent wire coupling between the 2 coqches so they run as a pair.
Cheers MIKE

3DR couplers, traditional Rapido style, leave them clear or paint them black.

With Farish suburbans using the original buffers you may just about get away with the shortest shank, or at least a mix of short and medium, all thanks to @RussellH of this very forum:


Here's an upgraded Farish suburban with one fitted:
