|4004: LOCOMOTIVE/TENDER HORNBLOCKS (BASIC 2MM)|
A choice of detailed or basic Locomotive Hornblock designs is offered for use with chassis built using the Flexichas principle devised by Mike Sharman. Further details of this method of construction can be found in Mike Sharman's book 'Flexichas – A Way to Build Fully Compensated Locomotive Chassis’. Both designs feature a bespoke brass square bearing which is positively located by the hornguide with no thin brass edge to wear away. They will fit any standard 6mm wide hornblock cut-out which extends 4mm above the normal axle centre line on the chassis mainframe. Bearings are provided sufficient for three axles but the etch carries enough guides for four.
