The Buffer stops
Austria is a country of narrow-gauge railways. In every federal state there are, or have been, their own routes, which were mostly or are still under their own administration. So it is not surprising that the individuality of these sticks continues to their extreme ends and that each has its own buffer stop that is typical. The relatively widespread buffer stop of the old construction was introduced a few months ago. The originals were welded together from old rail profiles. The basic construction is always the same, simple and effective. But every train station has adjusted the buffer a bit.
With the new construction of some train stations or their modernization, the modern buffer stops have also found their way. Here, too, a common basic construction was chosen, but the adjustments are much more extensive than with the old construction method. Thanks to modern production methods, thirteen (!) more buffer stops can now be offered. One for every train station, sometimes more then one ... without any claim to completeness, there is already something for everyone. Thanks to the detail-focused hobby of one of our employees, new versions are reported almost daily, which are still waiting to be realized. The range will definitely be expanded in the next few months.
