As the big Dublin show is only a few days away, I thought it would be good to put together some details about what you can expect from IRM this weekend. We are delighted to be able to sponsor the show, our first show to do so as we look to support our local clubs and their shows every year which take great planning, dedication and hard work.
We will have a slightly scaled down version of our new exhibition stand at the show, in the main hall towards the back. On it we will be on hand to sell cement bubbles, show you samples of plough vans and Taras, some items for our forthcoming project 42 range as well as Accurascale stock and samples on sale and view.
On top of that, we will be taking pre-orders on Taras, Ploughs and our forthcoming container liners, which will be in limited numbers. You can read about that via the ling below.
And finally, we will have TWO all new model announcements at the show at 11am on Saturday. One item will have a pre-production sample on hand, the other will be CAD only, but will give you a view of what we have coming after the 42ft flat project. So, make sure you drop by, say hi, and see what we have coming your way.
We look forward to seeing you there!
We are opening the order books on our first items of our 42ft project this weekend; the B&I, Bell and CIE Liners. And before you ask; yes, it was due to be the ferts first, but the ferts are undergoing some vigorous fettling which as you may have noticed, has delayed the whole project somewhat. So, while we get that sorted out (and we nearly have it sorted) we have swapped the container liners into first position as they are more advanced.
We are doing two packs of two wagons with Bell containers, two packs of two wagons with B&I containers., and one twin pack with two wagons each featuring two 20ft CIE containers. Phew! The B&I and Bell containers are of course the C Rail intermodal containers, which are excellent in both finish and fidelity, while the CIE 20ft containers are new tooling from ourselves. We're delighted to say that we will have pre-production samples of both C Rail container liveries on our stand at Raheny this weekend for you to see. While Bell containers have been done before, they have not been done on this pattern of container, which is earlier than other C Rail Bell containers giving them an operating spehere of 70s-90s. They also new numbers unique to us. The B&I containers have never been done before, and of course the CIE containers are uniquely Irish and all new tooling.
Cost per pack is €100, with a rake deal in place for CIE, Bell and B&I trains of four packs for €375. Delivery is Q1 2019. Since the production numbers of these is quite small, (half the size of other production runs like bubbles and smaller than the taras) they will sell out pretty fast. So, dont miss out on them. They will be available to pre-order from our stand and online from Saturday morning at 11am.
As mentioned elsewhere, we will also have a new product announcement (Well, two actually!) on our stand at Raheny, so make sure you drop by and have a look!
I am an early to mid 80s' man up to Mk 3 era so am really interested.
Haven't ordered yet as was waiting to decide what to do so I will definitely buy 2 plough in CIE finish.
Likewise with the Tara's I have held off. Not so much by the colour but by the roof.
