Carette G1

Replica Carette drop-link couplings - Gauge 1     1909 - 1917

Our replica of the chunky Carette coupling with its distinctive drop-link.

Carette pivoted their couplings on small pins which they flattened at the lower end. This takes considerable force. Our solution is to supply a semi-tubular rivet with each coupling. This is hollow at the end and therefore easy to squeeze flat with a pair of pliers, giving a very good representation of the Carette method.

The Carette coupling is to be found on vintage products marketed by the original Bassett-Lowke company.
