Suitable for most Class 08 and Class 09 locomotives, please read the full Product Description below.
Add some extra detail to your locomotives or replace missing accessory buffer beam details.
OO Gauge (supplied unpainted)
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.
This set of brake pipes is enough for both ends of one Class 08 or 09 Locomotive, the UNPAINTED pack includes:-
For a Class 08
2 - Air Brake Pipes (BP) - Red
4 - Main Reservoir Air Pipes (MRP) - Yellow
2 - Vacuum Hoses (VAC)
2 - Dummy Drawhooks with Screw Couplings
In addition the following pipes are included when the locomotive to be fitted is a Class 09.
1 - Cab End Set of low/high level Brake and Main Reservoir Air Pipes (09 BP/MRP)
1 - Rad (Radiator) End Set of low/high level Brake and Main Reservoir Air Pipes (09 BP/MRP)
For dual braked locos, fit the air brake and vacuum brake pipes.
For vacuum only braked locos, fit just the vacuum brake pipes.
For air only braked locos do not fit the vacuum brake pipes.
- There were many variations between members of the Class 08 and 09 fleets in pipe configurations, fitting and placement; therefore it is recommended to refer to photographs of the real thing when fitting these parts.
- The Class 09 low/high level pipe sets are different for the Cab End and the Radiator End, the correct set of pipes must be selected from the sprue.
- The 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.
