I'm after a few modern(ish) HO/00 (1960 onwards) Scale coaches or wagons as a source for bogies for my 1:55 scale NG modern image line.

The bodies can be pretty tatty, as long as the wheels and bogies are able to use PECO code 100.

I have family visiting here soon so I can arrange postage to them.

Just noticed this. Anything 5.5mm/ft online interests me. Just wondering if you could share your ideas for a model, especially as it looks like you intend to use both 16.5mm(metre gauge?) and 9mm (50cm gauge?) . I had also thought that 6.5mm gauge might suit 15in(40cm) gauge .

Will try anything once, looking for the ultimate easy to set up portable exhibition layout, preferably French narrow gauge and with lots going on, not necessary on the rails.

Have a look at the blog address on my signature for the tedious details. I'll start a thread here at some point as well.

The first model is likely to be 9mm gauge 1:55 scale representing a Feldbahn that has evolved into a common carrier type line in a town in south Germany. The 16.5mm gauge line will probably take a bit longer to turn up...
