Oleo Buffers
« on: January 06, 2017, 03:36:48 pm »
Does anyone know a source of these (the big round ones) as fitted to the Farish 20 or the Dapol 86? I'd prefer a brass version but plastic will have to do I suppose. It's a pity that Farish have economised on the current 20 by fitting plastic and a retrograde step in my view, seeing as e.g. the 25/3 had metal.

BHE also sell packs of large brass oleo buffers (unless I have bought his entire stock  :) ).

Just had to replace two on a Dapol 33, which are also plastic mouldings. As you say, very retrograde step IMO.
