I can supply the parts £7.50 for the driving end and £6.50 for the luggage end, but I wont make STL available as the time it took to to a site measure and design them.

GWR Autocoach control gear

I have designed and 3D printed the autogear under the driving and luggage ends of the Bachmann autotrailer it will also fit the Airfix/Hornby model with a bit of packing. Any tension lock couplings will need to be removed if using these.

Re: Sleeper Spacing again!

This is a photo of our model of Aylesbury station which built to the correct 18.83mm gauge and P4 standards, the trackplan is correct and all the trackwork is handbuilt with separate chairs on wooden sleepers.
