Can anyone Help im about to start off my Railway Model and have decided to use Peco 009 Track (Similar to N Gauge) What i require is a Engine/Body of 00 Gauge with the Chassis of a 009 to fit my Track. Does anyone have any engines/Carriages etc they are prepared to sell.

Thanks In Advance

As i totally New to this game i sought advice from my local model shop in Durham after buying Peco 009 Track, I don't really fancy the Small n gauge trains, so he adviced me to get as asked 00 body with 009 Chassis. I'd be no good at attempting to build this up as yet so thought i would take the quick route and see if anyone had any readily made up at there disposal.

The main problem is im only on a 10ft x 3 ft baseboard hence the 009 Track, as a different post i made on this forum im am going to attempt to re-recreate http://009modelrailway.fotopic.net/c1144285.html or parts of it at least. So i only took advice what he told me if there's 00 gauge sized trains that run on this Peco 009 track that is what im after if its possible.

Please excuse my innocent Thickness as i've only been into this hobby for a few days, and we all started somewhere

Make sure that they have couplings on as a lot of people will take them off when they sell then as they cost about 75p each ! coupling . If you have the money look out for Poo & spud they make some very nice models but you will have to dig deep into your pocket for these they always sell for over £100
009 has it own listing on Ebay so its not to bad comes under

As a member, you'll be able to take advantage of the second hand sales, which usually has a large number of loco's and stock.

Cheers Mate Yes im going to join, i seen this earlier tonight whilst browsing seems great.

OK guys i seen what i thought was a real bargain today and could resist it, It means i have to adjust my BaseBoard by 1 ft but i can just about do it.

Whilst at the metro center today i went to Model Zone and they had a Bargain i could'nt resist. Hornby GWR Digital Western Pullman for £149
after walking away i thought shit with it, so i went back. I think i was trying to run before i crawled in trying to take on the task i had planned, so it thought lets take it easy and start as a beginner should and then be more adventurous So my 009 is shelved for the moment until my knowledge and experience grows.

Do you think i have done the right thing here.

The Set comes with some lovely engines and carriages to get you going aswell and ready to use.
Let me know what you think.

Cheers mate i really needed to hear this, the thought of this bargain was to good to miss out on, that was the deciding factor aswell as the main 00 gauge was what i was after in the first place. now i can get started once i sort my baseboard out in a couple of days.


Not sure i like the Trakmat setup that comes with it, so once its setup im going to remove the Trakmat and re-adjust to my own ideas.
