DRAWHOOKS, STOP PRESS!
Dinmore Manor Locomotive Limited have produced a batch of GWR engine and tender drawhooks. These are based on GWR drawing No.91163B and are supplied machined and ready for use but without, screw coupling, links etc. Drawhooks have been formed by a traditional hot die forged stamping process using a modern equivalent steel. The material specification, production process and testing regime have been assessed by a Vehicle Acceptance Body, and come with all certification that the drawhooks are acceptable for use on ex-GWR locomotives in lieu of original items to drawing 91163B.
Deliveries have now been made of pre-ordered hooks and further sales have been made - there are now only three hooks left from the batch! If you are interested in any of the remaining stock please contact Martin Ginger
