      2Pipes and multiple working jumper cables for both ends of one Class 44, 45 or 46 locomotive.  UPDATED Set

      Add some extra detail to your locomotives or replace missing accessory buffer beam details (please read the full Product Description).

      OO Gauge (supplied unpainted)

      Quantity :

      Until the 1960s the majority of BR locomotives had provision only for Vacuum Train brakes. From the early 1960s the standard air brake system was introduced, therefore it was common to see locos and rolling stock dual braked (i.e. fitted with both vacuum and air brakes). The use of vacuum brakes on BR was phased out during the 1980s.

      Multiple Working Equipment was fitted to Class 44, 45 and 46 locomotives from new, however this equipment proved troublesome and was rarely used; the associated cables, receptacles and control air pipes were removed from most locomotives by the mid 1960s.   This UPDATED Set now includes these multiple working equipment pipes and cables.

      This set of brake pipes is enough for both ends of one Class 44, 45 or 46 Locomotive, the UNPAINTED pack includes:-

      2 - Air Brake Pipes (BP) - Red
      4 - Main Reservoir Air Pipes (MRP) - Yellow
      2 - Vacuum Hoses (VAC)
      2 - Steam Heat Pipes (S/H)
      2 - ETH (Electric Train Heating) Jumper Cables (ETH) - Orange
      2 - ETH (Electric Train Heating) Jumper Receptacles (ETH) - Orange
      2 - Multiple Working Jumper Cables (MW) - Orange
      2 - Multiple Working Receptacles (MW) - Orange
      4 - Control Regulating Air Pipes (CA) - White
      4 - Main Reservoir Pipes - White

      For dual braked locos, fit the air brake and vacuum brake pipes.
      For vacuum only braked locos, fit just the vacuum brake pipes.
      For train heating boiler fitted locos, fit the steam heat pipes.
      For ETH fitted (Class 45/1) locos, fit the ETH Cables but not the steam heat pipes. 

      Notes:-

      • There were many variations between members of the Class 44/45/46 fleet in pipe configurations, fitting and placement; therefore it is recommended to refer to photographs of the real thing when fitting these parts.
      • All pipes have a 0.7mm peg that can be fitted into a drilled hole in the buffer beam, alternatively the peg can be cut-off and the pipe attached with a small amount of adhesive.
      • These parts are delicate and may not be suitable for use with couplings fitted, especially on tighter radius curves.
      • The pipes are supplied unpainted, please refer to pictures for typical colours.
      • Top-Tip - use a light coat of white primer first, and paint the pipes before removing them from the sprue.
