These couplings are an accurate scale replica of the couplings currently fitted to Superior and Excelsior at Whipsnade Zoo. They are almost identical to those 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.
Both styles are available with the scale end for hook & chain use, or an Accucraft chopper style end for use with Accucraft chopper couplings. This coupling kit requires two holes to be drilled in the buffer beam to allow for mounting the coupling higher up the buffer beam, just like the real ones.
Don’t want to drill holes but still want the look? We also offer a Bowaters Coupling Conversion Kit.
