It looks like it, but if it's TriAng it's probably 3mm scale, about 20% larger than American TT.

That model would be Tri-Ang OO scale, which has bodies a tad larger than HO scale.

I have a fairly large collection of Tri-Ang TT scale (1:100), and there are a few sites out there that show what Tri-Ang had to offer in TT. There was only 10 different types of locomotives, in a few different road numbers and colours. None were of that type.

A lot of what Tri-Ang made in TT was also replicated in OO as well. For example, I have one of Tri-Ang's 0-6-0 "Jintys" in OO scale, and it does look a lot like a fattened version of my TT scale Jintys.

Thanks. I did not know what model that was supposed to be, but I know that there were only three production line Tri-Ang Diesels, the Class 08 six coupled shunter, an A1A-A1A road diesel, and a Diesel Multiple Unit.

still think it looks mighty small for even true ho, never mind 00. i guessits based on the size difference between NA and European prototype.

Maybe the seller has BIG hands? LOL!
I had thought the same thing, With it in his hand I wouldn't have thought it was much bigger than a TT SD45. I have some American OO Scale stuff and it looks more like S Scale than HO.

so far as i know it is triang 00. i've never heard of it in TT-3 and i've seen a lot of it here in the UK. i imagine the photo is a bit distorted. triang painted this in a variety of schemes. it sort of looks like an RS3 and i think it was designed to look like something that might have run in canada or australia, ie, NSW 40 class RSC3 or the candian alcos, hence the 'transcontinental' range name. triang also did a double ended EMD type that looked like the VR B class.

the R155 is an essay in 1960s clunkitude but kind of cute. it may be on the small side for an 00 loco, but in truth it's impossible to say ... what actual prototype would you compare it to?
