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.

NGS bogies are supplied with coupling pockets, Arnold-type couplings and springs, but WITHOUT wheels.  Modellers may choose to fit Microtrains knuckle couplings, and types 1015, 1016 or 1025 are suggested.

All NGS bogies are supplied in pairs.
