Designed in conjunction with Bowaters Models, these couplings are designed to give the effect of the couplings fitted to the loco’s on the Bowaters Paper Railway. The Superior style mount was originally fitted to the 0-6-2 loco’s and Excelsior style to 0-4-0/0-4-2 loco’s. They fit over an existing Accucraft buffer mount and keep the coupling height the same.

Both styles are available with an end for hook & chain use, or an Accucraft chopper style end for use with Accucraft chopper couplings.

The kit requires an Accucraft buffer mount and is not accurate scale. If you don’t have an Accucraft buffer fitted or just want an accurate scale version, check out our Bowaters Coupling Kit
