I'm posting this to any group of which I am a member, and which I think
might have someone out there who would know the answer, so please
forgive any multiple posts you may receive.

There is an online index of 45mm gauge locomotive chassis, listing wheel
diameter, spacing, wheelbase, photos, and any pertinent information
about almost all the commonly available models, at least here in the US.
It can be found at

Is there anything comparable for any of the smaller scales? I'm
especially interested in HO for my own purposes. The reason I ask is
that last night I found myself wondering if there might be a
commercially available chassis suitable for an N&W class M, with 56"
drivers. It turns out that it's rather hard to find out for sure. I
did find that Bowser makes a 56" driver, but only in an 0-6-0 chassis.
It would sure be nice if I could simply scan a list of available
locomotives, looking for one that would fit my needs.

So how about it? Anybody ever heard of anything that would fit the bill?
