Tie Plate and Extension NOS Wanted

Postby Boxofbits » Wed Nov 03, 2021 4:22 pm

Hi all

Looking for a NOS tie plate with extension Part No: AAA 4803 / AAA 4804 OR if you’ve removed complete original tie plate and still in one piece I’d be interested. If rusted not too important.

Many thanks

Kevin

Any reason why you want an original rather than buying new on ebay or Moss. ESM etc? This is the part number you quote....

or do you mean this panel

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/173816099924

I have made some of these panels myself but the originals extend a bit more at the top? At least on my traveller thats how they are....

Hi Taupe

Yes they are the ones. The reproductions do not quite match the profile of the original. The oval hole is not as large and a slightly different shape. Yours look a better profile. Did you make them from 20swg? Problem is I don’t have an original as a template either.

Regards

Where are you based?

Which side do you need.... maybe I could make one for you if its important that it matches the original.

I would have thought that the commercial one could be easily adapted using a hammer though?

Hi Taupe

Yes problem is I didn’t have an original pattern for these, otherwise as you say I could probably have hammer and dollied a couple of reproductions? A friend of mine found an NOS panel AFTER I had posted this ad, and said he will make a couple for me.

I’m based in Eastbourne btw. The ones you’ve made look pretty darn close.
