Graham Farish N Gauge Steam locos

This topic This board Entire forum Google. Not Registered? I have trouble with these becoming detached - especially from the locos.

On the loco, the coupling tilts upwards very slightly and I can't find a way of stopping this. It also pulls out of the receiving socket rather easily. Is there any way of improving the reliability of these, or should I fit an alternative system, if there is such a thing. A basic question, but rather important. Given that you mention the couplings pulling out of the pocket, that seems to imply NEM pockets? The couplings certainly shouldn't be pulling out unless they're not pushed all the way home in the first place?

There is a positive "click" when they are properly plugged in. I have read of some people finding couplings not sitting level in NEM pockets.

I don't notice it on my European stock. Check whether it is the coupling not sitting level in the pocket, or is it the pocket itself not level? The latter can happen sometimes if the pocket is mounted on a close-coupling mechanism which slides sideways to expand for tight curves, and that mechanism becomes out of alignment or loses its spring.

Yes that is very odd. Quite a few people have problems with stock coming uncoupled. Many Dapol wagons are notorious for it. However couplings actually pulling out of sockets is weird.

Are you running very long trains, or have steep gradients or anything? If you have issues with your Farish NEM couplings pulling out off the socket an easy fix is to replace the coupling with one from another maker, Dapol for example. On the coupling there are two small pins that hold the coupling in the socket, for dome odd reason Farish started making these pins thinner on their standard coupler, but not on their short coupler.

All other makes and the Farish short are a tighter fit in the Farish coupling pocket. Also regarding random uncoupling especially from the loco, check that the coupling is free enough to return to centre when you flick it up or down, if it pops up or down and stays there it will uncouple. I have found that Farish Mk2 coaches have extremely loose NEM pockets, and couplings Paul our far too easily, they also disconnect tall the time so I have to put a tiny bit of blue tack or similar on them to keep them together, which means if you do have to take them off the track for wheel cleaning etc you find couplings pulling out of sockets instead of disengaging.

On the other hand, all my recent Farish Mk1s have ridiculously tight NEM pockets and you feel like you are going to rip it apart when you want to change them. Many thanks.

The main problem is attaching the gf loco to the coaches. The loco catch rides high and this seems to be the issue. I was wandering if there is an alternative coupling system but the blue tack solution may be the best bet.There seems to be a problem serving the request at this time.

The Graham Farish factory building, promotional photo published in [image info]. Formoway Tunnel-mouth [image info]. Graham Farish the company was founded by Thomas Graham Farish inand made and sold a range of engineering-based "odds and sods", capitalising on the radio craze by selling radio components for home constructors. When the enthusiasm for home-built radios subsided, Graham Farish moved into other manufacturing, and made electric fires, jar lids, fountains and plant food pellets, with Thomas Graham Farish enthusiastically patenting various innovations.

They reinvented themselves as a model railway company in Always looking for new markets, Graham Farish showed their Formo flexible model railway track inwith their GP5 gauge train sets appearing inand produced sixty-odd figures for the Coronation in As one of the early adopters of two-rail gauge, Graham Farish then briefly started producing three-rail sets, inunder the Formo name.

The motors for their two! Farish were always a slightly odd model railway brand. While they had something of a cult reputation in some circles for the ability of their locomotives to run realistically at very slow scale speeds after being suitably run-inthey didn't produce all that many locomotives, or all that many variations on rolling-stock, perhaps hesitant to commit to the necessary tooling-up costs without having the possibility of mass-market sales of their big competitors.

A comparatively small operation without a massive toy or model range, or major toy distribution, the main product line that Farish advertised — quite strongly — was the more unglamorous market sector of model railway track and points which Farish had apparently mastered and invested in, and could presumably churn out at reasonably low cost.

Where Farish had a special selling point was their flexible track - a product that sold to enthusiasts who would curve it to shape and cut it to size, and which was more suited to hobby shops than toyshops. Because flexible track assumed more technical know how and tools than simple plug-together track, the main model railway companies tended not to produce it, leaving the market open for small specialist companies like Farish and Peco.

Once you have gained a little experience with your first train set, you will find yourself envying those enthusiasts who own a layout with universal track. Flexible track can be used to form curves or any length, and gives the builder complete freedom as far as track planning is concerned, as one is not restricted to one specific radius. The Graham Farish track system is one such universal system, and the track they produce is in three foot lengths which can, or course, be curved to any radius, and cut to any length.

A little more skill is required to lay track of this sort, and I shall be dealing with this in greater detail next month. The same firm also produce a number of locomotives and beautiful Pullman coaches. The range of points produced by Graham Farish is very comprehensive, and includes a double slip, single slip, three way point, diamond crossing, curved point, Y point, 2 ft.

The design, construction and materials were a little quirky, and at some point in the late s, Farish seem to have decided to clear out the existing stocks, and start again with new designs. Advertising announcing the selling off of the last of the stock was done under the name of Hutchinson Roe, also of Bromley, Kent, who seem to have been one of the Graham Farish companies.Out of Stock due 14 - 21 days.
