Are you talking about this? It looks like it may be a Lionel shell. http://www.modellbahnhof-geringswalde.de/html/fotos2.html

I did some searching on this but can't come up with anything definite. It would be nice if we could build a library of the Lionel TT scale stuff as we come across information.....

The only tt scale geep by Lionel I can find is a gp9. It WOULD be nice to put together a Lionel tt list.

The only diesels Lionel made were the GP 9 and the F3. They did also make the GG1 electric and a couple steam locomotives too. The Union Pacific loco is a low nose conversion made by members of The Iris Creek Valley group in Germany to update the Lionel. The Iris Creek group also did the GP 38 that show up in www.ttscale.com in the photos section.

I assume he means these ones. I think Carsten Bauer from the group said they were a limited run. They aren't available so far as I know.

If you talking about this model, then you can find it here.

... and more photos of the (old) ICV RR layout too.

...but those prices, just... wow.

The E7 that Iris Creek has is probably the body made by Union TT in the later 1990s to fit a Tillig chassis. I have no idea if it is available anymore, or even if Union TT is even around anymore.

The prices are simply insane. The GC wagons are 50 euro = $70 - more than twice what they cost here. I hope Felix and company are getting a nice chunk of the premium. This car is 79Euro - $110. Are you Haggis kidding me???? I really need to get into this. At $110 per wagon I can come up with a profitable business plan in no time flat.
