I spent a very long time trying to get an Ibertren cuckoo - the company does not exist any more. I understand that there is a replacement available from the 7mmnga now but i think you might have to be a member of there group to purchase them. I would give you the web link but there site seems to be down at the moment for some reason. I also do 009 and if u want some ideas please have a look at my layout here

hope it helps you - any other questions please ask .....
