Yes, the Tillig FP7 based on the Rokal shell. Lok-n-Roll got some shells and build chassis. At my video from the fair at Leipzig stands a Canadian Nation FP7 at the siding.
Lok-n-Roll.de - we send worldwide :wink:

These are an FP unit. I have one of these bought from Coastal MANNNNYYYY years ago. We moved house 10 ( nearly 11 ) years ago and it was bought long before that. My guess 15+ years old - probably still have the paperwork somewhere.

It has been powered using a greatly filed down Piko ' Herkules " diesel chassis. The inside of the shell was also thinned, CAREFULLY with a dremel, especially around the nose. I have used the Lionel sideframes, laminating them to the thinned down Piko gear/wheel housing as the Coastal ones were too deep in the detail and protruded well outside the body shell.
