Can't see anything specific by Googling.

From memory, ABS do LSWR fittings, but I don't have access to my ABS catalogue at present and they have no web presence.

If the buffers on this preserved wagon http://www.bluebell-railway.co.uk/bluebell/wagon/lswr_open_wagon.html are the right pattern, then I think Lanarkshire B033 http://www.lanarkshiremodels.com/lanarkshiremodelsandsupplieswebsite_075.htm should be very close - assuming a 1'6" buffer for an unfitted wagon.

Similarly, the pictures of LSWR models built from Cambrian kits http://www.cambrianmodels.co.uk/lbseswkits.html suggest that MJT 2254 GCR-grease box http://www.dartcastings.co.uk/mjt/2254.php would be a visual match.

If you have engineering drawings of the buffer guides you need, or even a good "modeller's" drawing, I could add them to my range on Shapeways. I'm not in a position to print axleboxes yet (SCAD system still needs to be beaten into submission).

EDIT: found them at MRD's site http://www.emardee.org.uk/LSWR-Wagon-Buffer when looking for something else. That site must be Google-proof.

Thanks for your pointers, I will go with the MJT axleboxes and the LMS buffers.

Thanks

And, unfortunately, Adrian is not too well at the moment so isn't in a position to supply.
