    as you can see, a lot of thought went into the design and construction!!!

    No doubt many cups of tea were drank during it's design phase too, seamus! Here's the top of one I snapped some years ago down the north wall and the front at limerick jct. I assume both are gone to the great scrapheap in the sky.

    I was very impressed that the old one on the ramp of Platform 1 at Ballybrophy survived - the track there was even disconnected during the Great Leap Forward and yet it still wasn't removed. It would be interesting to have a dendrochronological investigation of the old wooden beam - I wonder if it is original?

    Trying to find a video of a multi-clamp buffer in action, I came across this non-relevant, but highly amusing clip...

    Buffers.

    I have searched my railway books for pictures of buffers in Goods Yards, Loco Depots but close up and detailed pictures are like "hens teeth"!

    The ones I have found appeared to have been constructed from old rail and the nearest pro-typical ones I can find in the model world is the PECO ones.



    I would welcome suggestions if there are better ones than the PECO available.

    Are you looking for those ones specifically or the more modern RAWIE ones?
