    A small plea for information/spares:

    I'm currently trying to source a spare hydraulic OLEO buffer for a BR Std Brake Van based on the South Devon Railway. After the orginal 2 that were purchased were stolen from the vehicle owner's driveway, we have struggled to get hold of anymore. One was obtained but was about 4 to 5 inches longer than all the others on the vehicle!!

    If anyone knows of where I can get hold of such a spare buffer, then any information would be much appreciated. I have the measurements of the buffers currently in place on the vehicle if required.

    Many thanks!
