Identifying Lima coach

Postby Igor » Tue Jan 20, 2015 9:50 pm

Hi, I just wondered if anyone can help identify an old Lima coach. I bought it some time ago and it is currently being rebuilt as a 16mm (ish) scale narrow gauge vehicle. It is 0 gauge (the body is not really to scale but the gauge is 32mm), it has 3 compartments and most noticeably a bright yellow, pointed (almost like a pagoda), scalloped roof. I did find a site before but it did not have much information. This site I think was an ebay sale so has now gone anyway. If anyone has any idea about these coaches I would be grateful for any info.

Odd one. I don't remember Lima doing any odd coaches like this. Almost sounds more like Faller as they did do some strange looking wagons and coaches in their smaller O scale range.

Definitely says Lima on the chassis.

Lima did do a deal with Triang to sell the Triang O gauge items. It would help to see a picture.
