Braking buffer stops with fractional retarding action, widely used on the Continent, have been tested in South Wales. There are three principle types of Rawie buffer stop in use but each can be modified or supplemented by altering or adding components, as conditions may render advisable. The simplest is the rail brake design. In this, friction grips, or clamps, provided with bronze inserts, are bolted to the rail head in such a manner as to give the desired brake power in tons.
