Buffer Stop
A buffer stop, bumper, bumping post, bumper block or stopblock (US), is a device to prevent railway vehicles from going past the end of a physical section of track. The design of the buffer stop is dependent, in part, on the kind of couplings that the railway uses, since the coupling gear is the first part of the vehicle that the buffer stop touches. The term "buffer stop" is of British origin, since railways in Great Britain principally use buffer-and-screw couplings between vehicles.Contents1 Types1.1 Energy-absorbing 1.2 Dowty retarders1.2.1 Examples1.3 Wheel stop2 Accidents 3 See also 4 References 5 External linksTypes[edit] Several different types of buffer stop have been developed. They differ depending on the type of coupler used and on the intended application.Buffer stops with anticlimbers
