      Graham,

      Ian Lindsay Models http://www.ilm.50megs.com/ produces models of the
      Victorian Railways 2'6" gauge rolling stock, the kits including
      whitemetal Fox bogies. I am not familiar with those used on the
      Barsi, but it might be worth checking his website to compare, and an
      email to Ian to see whether he can supply bogies by themselves.

      These are in 1/4" scale, 1:48 rather than 7mm, but might be useful.

      John
