Alternative makes to Bachmann 0n30

Hi, any alternative makes/manufacturers to Bachmann 0n30 that may have E-Z Mate 2 couplers. As much as i like this make, it has limitations available. Or another make i could fit E-Z Mate 2 couplers too of a similar size as I do like this scale & suites my larger layout. Thanks

Not sure regarding couplings but take a look at Slimline kits.

Also one or two Smallbrook Studio diesel kits have an American look to them.

Ah! Thanks, MG, some good alternatives. A little pricy, but gives me some alternate ideas to look out for in the second-hand market.

The good thing is that once one has a decent loco, wagons are relatively easy to scratchbuild as the larger scale makes it easier. That way the main costs are wheels and couplings.
Mind you, it all depends what you hope to end up with.
