Source wanted: 1.6mm bipolar (red/green) LED

Does anyone know of a source for commercial quantities (ie, manufacturer or distributor) of a 1.6mm or similar bipolar red/green LED, suitable for HO/N signals?

Thanks

Actually, i beg to differ. there's been a number of times i need to source replacement components for the machines at work, and digikey doesn't carry it. When that happens, i call Newark.
To "call a spade a spade" is to speak honestly and directly about a topic, specifically topics that others may avoid speaking about due to their sensitivity or embarrassing nature. The Oxford English Dictionary records a more forceful variant, "to call a spade a bloody shovel", attested since 1919.

There's also Mouser: http://www.mouser.com/

And when I'm looking for LEDs, these are the places I check first (and there's plenty more where these came from):
