Now those do look good, close enough for a skirted fishplate.
Is there a price and source as yet?
regards

Peco bullhead fishplates

Postby grovenor-2685 » Wed May 31, 2017 6:04 pm

I picked up a packet of Peco's new code 75 bullhead fishplates at Railex and have now had a good look.
These are correct scale length and have representations of 4 bolt heads. They fit the Society rail well and give a good representation of a skirted fishplate. Recommended.
They come 24 to a packet at a reasonable price, at least compared to the DCC concepts inaccurate version.

Hi,

I bought a couple of packs of these. They look really useful, one of which I thought might be in the assembly of loose heal switches. I have not had to make any of these so far, but I would be interested to know what more knowledgeable members think.

Regards,
Tony.

Seriously looking to buy some at earliest opportunity.

They looks good, not as good as the cosmetic ones but good still......and functional this time..
