Can anyone point me in the direction of a Ibertren 0-4-0 chassis, otherwise known as a Cookoo chassis. It is discontinued at the present although i have heard someone in the 009 society is potentially manufactureing a replacement that fits with the kits?

Does anyone know about these alternative chassis, or know a source for the originals?

Yes its not easy finding chassis for many OO9 loco kits, but I believe that 'Avalon Line' produce a ready to run replacement. He doesn't seem to have a proper website but if you go to www.ukmodelshops.co.uk/. Manufacturers & Suppliers Directory and look up Suppliers by Category - Loco Kits, some contact details appear. There are some other options available but my memory is appalling and I will have to look them up and post again (if someone doesn't beat me to it).

A couple of photos are on the 7mm Narrow Gauge Association site at http://www.7mmnga.org.uk/sales/modellinggoods/avalonline.htm

However sales through the Assn are to members only - others will need to contact Howard Martin direct.

As far as 009 chassis go you will have to check to see if it will definately fit with the kit but as Dinwiddy said
you can get them from the 7mm association. They are slightly different but will fit most kits with some alteration.
There are four different ones two for steam and two for diesel. Dont quote me on this but i have been told that the two steam ones are the replacement
for the Ibertren Cuckoo and the Bachmann Dock Shunter, The other two just being an 0-4-0 and an 0-6-0 basic chassis for diesel use.
One bonus is that these new chassis have a flywheel on them so technically no more sticking on points etc !!




I have also found that some kits will fit a bachmann N MDT Plymouth Chassis ( about 18.00 - 20.00 Quid ) with a bit of cutting about.
I fitted a Peco Dennis kit with it and it runs really really well. It will also fit in quite a few other kits if you are willing to put the work in to make it fit!

Hope this helps you out.
