    Default Peco SL340 Buffer Stop

    I am going to be installing Peco buffer stops on my layout. My question is, should i glue them together so they are more stable? I am going to paint them and cut off the lamp and add a blinking LED.

    Why Peco buffer stops with lights? Real world rail roads do not use them.
    On the other hand, if doing a fantasy railroad, then go for what ever looks cool!

    Osborne rail stops are a great alternative, and wont damage your couplers.

    Thanks for the feedback. The only reason I was going to add an LED to it was because there was a "lamp" molded on the stop. I think I will just remove that, paint it and glue it together.

    Personally, I'm a big fan of Osborne rail stops for any industry track setting. Although I've seen a lot of industries who's tracks just end in a dirt pile or buried into a hillside. For yards, I like the Walther's Cornerstone or Kato Unitrack Style C bumpers, with the weird Japanese light pole left off.
