I'm not sure if this is the right style of trailers that you wanted....

thanks tank but that is the earlier type with the rail wheels attached to the trailer.  the one im looking for is similar to what the americans run. the trailers were tri axle with retractable air suspension. the rail bogies were fitted at a rail head. i think they were shown on tomorrows world or blue peter. i may have to wing it and go from memory but if any body can help i would be grateful.
