I found some pictures of a G2, a G5a, and a G5d, both of which are pretty similar, at least in specs I found on steamlocomotive.com

Guys let's take the discussion to the Prototypes / Models forum and leave this area for sales.

Well, I took a look at some numbers quickly... the Tri-Ang loco as you said has 17' driver wheelbase; the G2 has a 13' driver wheelbase. The BR01 has 15'... so, I think I'll still be looking for the BR01 parts... unless there's something with 3 drive axles with a 13' wheelbase?

I apologize for turning the thread from a "parts wanted" to a discussion about the prototype. I felt that posting photos of the BR01 and the G2 would help with others identifying the loco and possible places to obtain parts.

Just mentioning a class name does nothing for those not familiar with them., but in this instance I am now unsure if posting photos of the prototype was warranted.

I will try to be a little more careful in the future on turning threads for buy/sell into proto discussions in the future.

For my part I dug the pics and the discussion! But yeah, to get back to the point, I *am* still looking for those BR01 parts! :)

Be careful when ordering from the 3mm Society that when they say 3', for instance, they mean 9mm whereas we mean 7.62mm. Occasionally I make that error when looking through 3mm stuff. Some stuff on their standards for wheels:

If you don't care to join the 3mm Society, remember that Malcolm and David at 3mm Scale Model Railways (3SMR) are always there and easy to deal with.

I have a BR01 from BTTB that is disassembled that I think would be perfect for hacking up and spares. Its complete just
disassembled. It was made during the mid 90's when Tillig was taking over from BTTB. send me a PM or e-mail if interested. :D

I have both locomotives, I too have suffered with the wheel sets being poorly made (plastic parts which don't last very long) now attempting to source spares for my two BR23's as both are lying motionless, unable to move.. actually ran a Tillig 86 class steam today on my test track and I was jumping about like a frog on heat.. as I've had running issues with my locomotives ever since owning the stuff, however now that I'm going to modernise my stuff things seem to be looking toward better days...
