Your Trailer should appear in the iMovie Projects pane on the left side of iMovie. Click on the project to open it and you can edit it there.

I'll take a look at that.
Thank you Appleman1958

OK, I tried that. However, I'm still missing a step here. What I have is a movie project which contains a trailer.
The original trailer I have found as a project as you suggested, and I duplicated it, changed the text and renamed - perfect.
But now I want to remove the original trailer from my movie and replace with the edited trailer. I have duplicated my movie and deleted the original trailer, but I can't see how I can drop the new edited trailer into the movie - any thoguhts please?

OK In iMovie, you can copy and paste video clips from one project to another, but you cannot copy and paste the whole trailer with clips, titles, music, and everything.
In Final Cut Pro X, you can copy everything from one project to another, but don't get too excited. Final Cut Pro X does not have trailers.
What I would suggest is that you take your duplicated trailer with the changes you want. Use the SHARE menu to SHARE/EXPORT USING QUICKTIME. Choose Apple Intermediate Codec as your codec. Save it where you can find it.
Now, in iMovie use FILE/IMPORT MOVIE... and navigate to the movie you just shared. It will be an MOV file. Import that into your event, and then you can use it in another project.

Thanks for this. I just worked through it this way:
I exported the new trailer to a flash drive and then imported it back into iMovie as an 'event'. I was then able to import the event into my original project movie.
Thank you for taking the time and I realy appreciate the advice offered.
