    IRM Fert Wagon

    Our minimum order quantity per running number / livery is 250. Hence it has to be this way! Cheers, Fran

    IRM Fert Wagon

    Would it not make sense if you producing in volumes of 500 to split as follows: IE 200, IR 200 and CIE 100?

  5. Hi John I can only guess at this but, I was once told it was popular to paint the ends of carriages in a red lead colour as it was cheap, not sure if this is correct but a photo of a L&LSR carriage when new looks to have 3 colours on it, when I get around to it I might just do one coach in this scheme just to see what it looks like. regards Colin
  6. Hi there, in light of Irish Railway Models announcing CIE ballast hoppers in 2019, i am looking to exchange my four unopened IE/IR sets of ballast hoppers for 3 sets of CIE bubbles; any three from sets B, D, E or F required, multiples are ok but must be in as new condition. IRM still have some of these in stock; by buying 3 sets of bubbles from them you'd be getting four brand new sets of ballast hoppers in return. If you know of anyone who missed out on the ballasts, please let them know, Thank you, Alan

    barrow street

    This just keeps getting supernaturally better! Such an unusual prototype with so much detailed thought going into its planning, never mind its execution. I'm really enjoying seeing this one develop. I take it you live in a 5-storey house to accommodate it!!!

    Londonderry and Lough Swilly Railway Carriage livery

    Crimson and white was indeed what was in the back of my mind. But early on the LLSR proper changed, as you suggest, to brown & salmon, as below. No hard information on the very first LLSR carriage livery has survived, but the LSWR livery was indeed brown (lower; probably a dark chocolate shade) and a salmony pinkish colour above that with roofs originally white, but these would have weathered within a single trip to a lightish grey! Below are details, though the lettering and lining might have been different. http://early-lbscr.co.uk/lswr1520/Livery specification for 1520.pdf I can't help feeling that the ends were more likely to be brown, but I have no hard information on this. I suspect that the all-black livery came into being about 1910. Lining on the black paint was in red, which probably looked quite smart, if somewhat funereal, when new. In post-war times, or maybe from the 1930s, everything was plain wagon grey. (Irish railways have always seemed to have a love affair with grey! Today its the De Dietrichs and 071s....)

    Londonderry and Lough Swilly Railway Carriage livery

    The original Lough Swilly livery was to quote The Railway Magazine article on the line for November 1899,"The carriages are painted almost exactly like the LSWR" so Salmon Pink it is.Just as well as at the moment by coincidence is Swilly No 23 and L&B No1 both being painted in that livery(Dam fiddley).An article in the Irish Railway Record on the line by S Carse and D Murray (No21 Autumn 1957.)Also states that the Swilly coaches were originally in LSW livery whereas the Burtonport stock was supplied in Crimson lake with white or cream panels(I suspect they would have been white but the varnishes of the day turned them cream).I seem to remember reading somewhere that the their were painted vermillion,looking at the works photos that would certainly be the case.Hope this is of some use,Andy.

    Preorders of IRM Tara Mines Wagon begin this weekend

    Hi everyone, We had the factory on this week and they have advised us that the Tara's wont be ready until very late August. It turns out that they underestimated how detailed the wagons are and as a result want to take their time in getting them finished to the ultra high standard we expect and what they pride themselves on. We know it's disappointing that they will be another couple of weeks, but rest assured that they will absolutely be worth it. We rather top notch and a couple of weeks later than planned, rather than rushed and not up to scratch. Sorry about this short delay but when you get them in your paws we think you'll agree that they will be well worth the wait. Cheers, Fran (on behalf of the IRM crew!)

    GLENGARRIFF

    With the temperature in the loft now down to bearable level and even more importantly Mrs B , No. 5 offspring and son-in-law in London for the week and therefore only me and the dogs in residence; work has re-started. I wanted a long cattle/sheep loading bank ,one of the main features of many Irish stations but now invariably overgrown with the demise of livestock traffic. Mine runs along the front of the right hand baseboard and will be used as the Guinness storage facility. The tracks in the yard have had the ground level built up to rail height where the bogie Guinness flats can be unloaded by Fork Lift; the 4 wheel flats can be unloaded direct from the loading bank by fork lift as the wagon 'bed' is higher. I have been converting the Bachmann signal box to look a little more Irish with the removal of the balcony and re-positioning of the steps. The end barge-boards have also been amended. Only 2 more weeks of the school holidays to go and then I should be able to crack on in earnest! Ernie

    Any news on this? I thought that Alan needed a decent drawing or two. Wonderful opportunity to get kits for 6 wheelers with largely rectangular mouldings.
