Chris Ford is a member of the Bowman Circle and produces spares for Bowman, Basset Lowke and Hornby.

I've bought wheel & axle sets and safety valves for my Bowman 234 from him. Great service, good quality, a lovely chap to deal with and very reasonable prices.

His website gives lots of details but it's probably best to phone him before ordering.

I recently took delivery of some Bowman loco parts from Chris Ford, and I must agree with Stephen - a Thumbs up from me too!

The website seems to have disappeared! I'll make some enquiries to try to find out if he's still trading.

Got it Mike - new website as quoted in TSN!

Will, Chris Ford's phone number is 01788 878475.

I had a quick look at his list of Bowman spares and, although quite extensive, I couldn't see a driving wheel there! Give him a call though, I'm sure he'll help if he can!
