    I'm trying my hand now at building up a 00 gauge model railway based on my "vinatage" (1978) GWR 0-4-0 passenger set. Now, over the years I've managed to get my hands on more track and a few trucks, but not the big, full length coaches. (mine are the small 4 wheelers).

    With the track I have I've got a nice layout (@Mixy, SCARM is fantastic!) I have a "dummy siding" which I want to fill with some rolling (or not so rolling) stock. The idea is that a large passenger train has left some coaches at a branch line and my little layout now services the branch. Wordsworth has some small coach templates but I'm looking for the big 8 wheeled bogied ones.

    I simply don't have the time to design my own, so if anyone knows/has/can help me out here?

    How about a picture of something similar to what you are looking for. I'm a member of a couple of RR sites and may be able to point you to something you like.

    Silveroxide made an incredible coach a couple of years ago.
