GWR J chairs

Since the introduction of J chairs on the new C&L sprues I have been trying to find out when these were introduced, according to Phil at C&L as far as he is aware they came in when the REA standards were introduced in the 30's

However in David Smith's GWR switch and crossing practice they are not mentioned at all, I spoke with Phil about this and he said the drawing he used came from Paddington in the 40's (his main computer is away having the data transfered to a new one

Can anyone enlighten me please

John

Hi John,

The GWR 2-bolt joint chairs are on Padd dwg R.3798, dated Nov. 1948. It's on the Scalefour Soc website, or I can scan it later if needed.

Only used with BS-95R rail. I can't find a joint chair for the GWR 00 (1900) rail. As far as I know not used within GWR pointwork.

Just now the sun has come out for the first time in days, so I'm off for a walk. :)

cheers,

Martin.
