Spare Parts

Code Price Availability
Bearing Carrier Etches

Bearing Carrier Etches

The bearing assemblies are a crucial part of the sprung bogies, come right at the start of the build when learning curves are at their steepest, and can be a trifle fiddly. The instructions guide you carefully through the steps and, once you've done a few, they're a breeze but, to cover for any untoward occurrences, we have these packs of spare etches, enough to do one whole 8-wheel or 12-wheel loco.

The brass bearings themselves are available from Alan Gibson, their part number 4M65.
