Keep your eye on ebay they crop up from time to time.
I think it may be worthwhile not going for the first thing which comes along sometime very nice ones turn up and for not much money.
Or......... it may be worth doing a search around the net to see if any dealers have something for sale.

Hi
I have a lot of 'watches' on EBay and missed one engine but not seen another since.
I need some more box cars too.

Don't worry about that. Often theses things come along in fits and starts. May be half dozen one week and not one of a while. Ebay is like that. I always find what I want will come along long as you take your time. John

Hi

Very few CoCo locos come up may pay to look at Australian ebay.

Hi. Looking through the Pat Hammond Triang books and Triang websites I can find no reference to a Co-Co transcontinental loco.
All the types mentioned are Bo-Bo (B-B) and the single ended Diesels R55 were loosely based on the EMD/GM F7 prototype even down to the Blomberg trucks (Bogies).
Was a Co-Co TC loco ever produced ?
I would be interested to know.
Regards, Colin

Try Elaine's Trains in the UK. She is a Triang specialist.
