just to say there are other Hornby drawbars that might be ok for other Bachmann  models, but they are not able to be bent to shape being plastic,the ones Ibought are from Peters spares,(just a satisfied customer)

If replacing plastic brawbars cut them from an expired credit/debit card, black or grey ones work best, (they don't need painting!)
