Bogies and Buffers

The NGS has developed a number of moulded plastic bogies for use with our various kits.  These bogies are also available separately to modify and upgrade other kits, and even ready to run wagons, thereby increasing the variety of models on your layout.

Bogies are supplied with coupler sprues (see below), but without wheels, which need to be purchased separately.  Modellers may choose to fit Microtrains knuckle couplings, and types 1015, 1016 or 1025 are suggested.

All NGS bogies are supplied in pairs.

NGSB0100 Coupler Sprue

Each coupler sprue contains one of the following:

NEM coupler box

Long NEM coupler
Coupler box for sprung coupler
Short sprung coupler
Extra long sprung coupler

Note that coupler springs are not included. The N Gauge Society is standardising on NEM fittings (where possible) for all its kits that have bogies.
The sprung coupler parts are included on the sprue, but it is envisaged that NEM couplings will be the modern choice for most modellers. If required, springs can be obtained from spare parts sellers such as BR Lines.
