Gents,

First time I have posted here but I need your help.

I am after a cheap-ish train set from a UK store that I can convert into the train from the movie Northwest Frontier / Flames Over India (Kenneth More, Lauren Bacall, Herbert Lom).

It looks like a small-ish tank engine but I need it to be suitable for 28mm sized figures. I keep being told 'American O Gauge' but I can't find a small enough engine.

Cheers,

Wayne

Ta Sir, but not cheap enough for my Boss!

Looks like I am going to have to visit that bloody giraffe's toy barn with a 28mm figure in hand, again!

Thank God I have kids or it'd look even more weird...

If you can visit a railway modellers' swap meeting. There are usually lots of second hand engines and rolling stock in every scale and to suit most pockets.
