Buffer Stops

We manufacture and supply fixed, non-insulated, rail mounted double raker buffer stops using new 56E1 running rail and serviceable 95RBH legs. Network Rail’s standard RE/PW/590 buffer stop can also be manufactured.

Designs are customisable to suit our client’s requirements, with either a single timber buffing beam or modified side buffing tips to accommodate trains with a protruding centre coupler.

Buffer stops can be reinforced for heavy duty service, which incorporates paired base and support rails fitted on timber sleepers with cast iron baseplates.

Buffer stops are painted black with the exception of the buffing tip which is painted signal red with a white reflective stripe. They are supplied with a minimum of two concrete or timber sleepers.
