Buffer stops

 

A simple, well made buffer stop that will fit in with many layouts. The parts can be repainted it the colour scheme does not match what you are after exactly.

The DCC version takes power directly from the track and the DC version connects to a low voltage accessory power supply.

I decided to mount the buffer stop directly onto the existing track, preventing having to join-up the two different track types. It took about a minute to install it and it works perfectly. The connectors are soldered to the track and the frame is glued in with a few drops of super glue. If you use the supplied section of track (Code 100 I think), then you just connect it to the end of the siding - no soldering required.

A bit too clean and shiny out the box, so I dulled it up with a little acrylic paint. It works perfectly and is a useful indicator that there is DCC power to the track - at least in this far-off section of the layout.

The buffer stop is also available in G-scale. A fine buffer for a large garden layout.
