Here at 52F Models we are developing a range of accessories to complement our range of
Easi-Rider Loco and Tender chassis as well as items to add that finishing touch to your kit or scratch built loco body.
Please be advised that due to the extortionate increase in postal charges, customers ordering lamp iron frets, loco and tender footsteps etc, a minimum order charge of £2.00 will apply on orders under £25.00 in value.  For orders valued from £25.01 to £49.99 a charge of £2.80 is applicable.  All cheques should be made payable to "52F Models". For orders over £50.00 in value are still post free, UK Mainland only.  For export orders carriage will be charged at cost.

All rights reserved.  This is a CAD 3D assembly drawing of the branchline buffer beam snowplough suitable for use with our J21, J25 and J27 easi-Rider loco chassis kits.  We will shortly have a production version of this plough ready for sale priced at £7.95 each plus P&P,  (See charges for carriage for small value orders) Overseas carriage will be charged at cost.
Photo © Peter Stanger.   This is a customer's Class J25 loco fitted with the prototype scratch built, buffer beam snowplough used on single track branch lines .  The snowplough is fabricated from 0.4mm nickel silver and is particularly tricky to make from scratch because of the compound angles and curves on an angled surface.   We have produced this accessory as a kit to complement the Easi-Rider Chassis for this loco.  It's an ideal addition for those of you who model branch lines.  They were a common site on J27's and J25's operating on exposed lines heading inland to central Northumberland from Morpeth and Hexham.  Blyth J27 65819 was so fitted and there is an excellent photo of the crew turning the loco on the turntable at Reedsmouth Junction where the Border Counties line from Riccarton Junction to Hexham meets the Wansbeck "Wanny" line.
The production version has been altered to ensure that it fits both the J25 and the J27 easi-rider chassis. 


There will be a different version available for the Q6.  This plough is used on double track secondary lines and is biased to the left hand side of the engine. A photo of a plough fitted Q6 will appear here shortly.

The Lamp Iron fret has the ptototypical NER tender/bunker lamp iron as well as a complex top smokebox lamp Iron which is held in place with a hand rail hnob.  For smaller loco's ther's a version that fits on top of the smokebox in front of the chimney.  The variations supplied will suit any NER/LNER built loco running after grouping.  Cost £2.95 plus P&P. (See charges for carriage for small value orders).  (Overseas carriage will be charged at cost)

The rear 3/4 view of the same loco shows the new lamp irons to good effect.  The top iron has five bends in it to achieve a realistic appearence.



Photo © Peter Stanger   Have you ever noticed that the most vulnerable parts of any white metal loco kit are the loco and tender steps?  We have produced a range of these steps for most North Eastern  railway locos.  The above steps are suitable for classes J25, J26 and J27and Q6 and are will be offered for sale at £4.95 per etched fret.  The material shown is 0.38mm brass but you may find that some frets are 0.38mm nickel silver.  Please note small value orders are subject to a £2.00 charge to cover P & P
