First Released - May 2014 - Available Now

Proudly Made in Australia

The 1:87 HOn3½ Scale Queensland Standard Rail Type Buffer Kit is an accurate scale representation of the standard rail formed buffer stop widely used on the Queensland system from the early 1980's to present day.

Our Buffer stops are cast in white metal and supplied in kit form, unassembled and unpainted. While they are based on Code 75 rail and designed to be compatible with Peco 12mm track, the buffer can be matched with Shinohara Code 70, and Tillig Code 83 with some adaptation.

According to the QR drawing for this buffer dated 1983, when new they were to be supplied with the metalwork receiving one coat of red oxide R.O.Z.C. primer, followed by two coats of black alkyd enamel. The timber buffer beam was to receive one coat of approved primer and one coat of white alkyd enamel. However after several years of exposure to the elements, the metal components of the buffer rusted and assumed the same colour as normal rails. In some locations, these buffers received very individual colour schemes when repainted. We have supplied several photos of buffers on this page at various locations across Queensland to assist you in finishing your buffer stops. The black and white striped examples are located at Proserpine.
