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 .....

nice layout...would liek to see it in operation...thanks for the info
well so far we have three 2ftx4ft baseboards and the scenic back boards are in place..withou the scenic side..wednesday will be the arrival of the 4 4x2ft and 2 4x4ft sheets of MDF and some more 1x1 and 2x1 neccesary for the next idea we have had...will post some pictures as i still havnt found how to pist them yet lol!
well we now have our layout up( not running) and its very sturday...we decided to use as much as poosible from the materials that my grandmothers(whose gargage we raid every session) old cupborads...and one peice wasnt quite 4 feet in we cut up our work bench as i just so happened to be 8ft now we have plenty of 4 feet lengths:p...luckily there was another 8ft plank to take its posted soon
Contact the 009 society as they have a sales stand selling secondhand stuff and iberten chassis still turn up.
If you have trouble contacting them pm or email me and I'll get Brian's number who organises it as he lives locally and I can get his number from a mate.
thank you very much for the info
