Aligned roller bearing ride control bogies - Where to find in SA?

Hi All, 
Anyone know where you can get these bogies in HO scale in Adelaide? Or beyond if not...
These are the ones commonly seen on the longer type wagons such as car carriers etc...
Thanks in anticipation...

I assume you mean those types with a bar or whatever up near the top of the bogie frame. I simply use a SEM bogie and add a piece of plastic rod glued on, then paint the bogie, it looks the part on it. The B7 bogie VR XSC Silver Spring type are what comes close doing this. You do have to make a bit of modification to the cast on detail up there though but it should look the part when you have finished. Takes all of a couple of minutes to do actually takes longer for the glue and paint to dry than actually modifying them.

These are made by associated distributors or Train World so you could try train world in Vic to post them,
I know Paul at end of the line uses them in his car carrier kits try him he might sell them too

The Associated Distributors bogies are available from Junction Models in Adelaide.

The next nearest distributor is 80 km away at End Of The Line.

Then  you will have closer ones online if you are not in Adelaide.

Orient Express sell the Associated Distributors bogies as well and if they are not in stock they may be able to get some for you.
