    I've just fitted white metal suspension spring castings to my Ramsbotton 0-4-0.

    It would be nice to have lost wax castings as I dont fancy the white metal versions chances of survival. They are quite weak.

    Anyone know who does them ? I'm off for a look at Laurie Griffins site but if anyone knows better ...... shout out.

    As a secondary idea whilst writing this, I have decided to create a new forum / section beside the Kit / kit bash category as I think that will help build a library of specific locomotive accessories.

    Comments welcome,

    Cheers

    Just to update,

    These have been sourced ( and purchased ) from Laurie Griffin Minatures at £ 6.00 a pair

    Cheers

    Yes,

    I bought enough to cover the Ramsbottom crane kit as well. They are spot on.
