I am sure GRS supplied the brass threaded 8BA handrail knobs in the kit for the GWR 14XX that I built a year ago.

Have you looked at the table on the Society's web site  http://gauge3.org.uk/hrailtable.html  ?

Its a bit out of date now, but shows that Gauge 1 knobs may be suitable as most made for Gauge 3 or 16mm are massively overscale.

Incidentally, if anyone can add to the list details of the Walsall Model Industries' knobs, other Gauge 1 suppliers, or indeed dimensions from other prototypes, I'm sure the Webmaster would be pleased to add them to the table.

In addition to those in the table, AHB Services   www.ahbservices.co.uk   advertise a range of handrail knobs.  Has anyone seem them and can provide sizes please?

Also Tenmill advertise some in Gauge 1 ref AG216 which might suit.  Anyone used them please?
