  2. Which station is this please?

    What I like about that pic is the terminal station buffers actually get used and they parked trains right up against them wasting no space. None of the modern silly buffer placement yards before the end of the platform edge, nor trains always stopped 10 yards before the buffers often wasting a coach and a half length of platform. My 1960s memory is of passenger trains parked right up against station buffers to maximise space and give my visual OCD some mild respite (before accidents and H&S changes brought in safety distances).
  3. IRM Cement Bubble Wagons

    Found some pics of clean looking Cement bubbles with light weathering (found on here). The last three on the right look like they've just been taken out of their IRM box. Gives an alternate weathering option for some.
  4. Failed loco

    Hi , try the lads in the Midlands Club in Abbeyleix . Is the other loco running okay?
  5. Another free baseboard!

    That would be a great help in starting on the layout with the other half, she has been collecting up bits over the last number of years but never did anything to get a layout sorted....things have changed since we met earlier this year and plans are afoot to get something put together in the new year. Just a query on that 6x4 baseboard could the catch on one side be done differently in order to facilitate a second 6x4 baseboard being added at a later date to create a 6x8 setup???
  6. Which station is this please?

    It's the LNWR station in North Wall, Dublin, looking from the train shed towards the road bridge at Sheriff Street and onward to Church Road. The shed became a goods depot after the station ceased operating in the 1920s, then demolished to make way for the re-developed docklands area in the 2000s. The main station building and adjoining LNWR hotel still survive. I believe the original photo now resides in the National Railway Museum archive in York.
  7. Which station is this please?

    This is bugging me, big style. Why is it the Victorian lads only had 1 mega pixel cameras, I'll never know...
  8. Yesterday
  9. Which station is this please?

    That does look like MGWR Attock stock but I'd be just guessing...However, the architecture on the left hand side bears no resemblance to limerick. There's no decorative arched brickwork, as seen on the right, in Limerick Colbert. More than Likely Heuston, if the roof panelling is anything to go by. Everything fits.

    Ah, right, I wasn't sure where you were. Marks seem to be held in fair regard, though I've only been in there once myself.

  13. Failed loco

    You might do well to get somebody to have a look at it.
  14. 80 Class Sandite still going!

    Great video Nelson, i love the sound of the engine. It's like an old age pensioner. It's nice to see a video with a steady camera and no zooming in & out.
  15. Which station is this please?

    That was on a GB Facebook page a few days ago, it seemed to get largely ignored when it was suggested that it might be to the West..
  16. Failed loco

    I'm not sure how to go about opening it up it was running when I picked it up of track it hasn't ran since that it's was budging but now it's not doin anything ... https://www.google.ie/search?q=murphy+model+112&client=ms-android-samsung&prmd=imvn&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjivNrb4NXXAhVpLsAKHWiPCMQQ_AUIEigB&biw=360&bih=560#imgrc=XZPOdSAAL--dCM: this is same as mine
  17. Failed loco

    Maybe it's the blanking plate where the decoder fits has come loose and not making the circuit.
  18. Popeye's Workbench

    Cheers Seamus. I think Patrick was referring to 461...
  22. enniscorthymans workbench

    Wonder if it would be worth the IRM lads doing good chassis's only? How would the van sit on an IRM One?
