    Hi folks, Well, since the cat is out of the bag in one of the magazines, we've decided to bring the first Accurascale announcement forward to, err, now! Our first model for the British market will be the 24.5-ton coal hopper wagon, which later received the TOPs code ‘HUO’. A total of 5,263 wagons were built by BR from 1954 for transporting coal and coke throughout Britain until their withdrawal in the 1980s, with many entering private use at collieries upon retirement by British Rail. The model, which is of the 1/148, lot 2069 pattern, has just finished tooling and an engineering sample is currently en route from our factory in China. The surviving prototypes were surveyed at the Tanfield Railway, near Stanley, County Durham in mid-October 2017. Following the survey, highly detailed CAD was produced locally and reviewed by wagon experts who had first-hand operational and survey experience of the prototypes when in service. We would like to thank the Tanfield Railway for the assistance we received and have made a donation to the railway to help with preservation of railway heritage for future generations. Flows which utilised HUOs include coke from East London to Wellingborough, Kirkby- Staythorpe, Killingworth to Stella, Kincardine, Stella North / Stella South / Dunston / Blyth, Thorpe Marsh Tunstead Works - Smaledale Works and Hessle Quarry to Hull Wilmington. They were also synonymous with coke flows from South Wales coking plants to Barry Docks. Our rendition of the HUO will feature the correct offset brake hanger arrangement and the following high level of specification, enjoyed by the customers of sister company IRM, whose Irish outline models are the most highly detailed on the market: · Sprung buffers with spindle, self contained and Oleo types all being catered for, depending on prototype · NEM coupling housing · RP25.110 darkened profile wheel sets · Factory-fitted wire handrails · Extra fine factory-fitted detail plastic parts · Individual lettering and markings from real wagons for authenticity · Built to scale tolerances to allow easy conversion to EM and P4 standards The HUO will go on sale in Q2 2018 in packs of three, with pre-TOPs, TOPs and private owner packs arriving on a staggered release basis throughout 2018 in a variety of liveries, such as BR freight grey and private owner wagons. They will also feature individual markings and detail faithful to research of the real wagons. The first release will see four different packs of three individually numbered wagons in BR grey with pre-TOPs markings so the modeller can build a 12-wagon train without duplication. Prices will be £59.95 for each pack of three wagons. In addition to the HUO, the various buffers used by the wagons throughout their lives will also be offered as separate detail parts for the detail-minded modeller. This will be sold in packs of eight for £2.95. This will be the first in a series of detail part packs offered by Accurascale for modellers. Both the HUO and the buffer detail packs are available to buy exclusively on the Accurascale website direct or from the Accurascale stand at various UK exhibitions from the second half of 2018. Orders will commence on February 1st.

    Hi I have set up for building Gauge N 141/181 last year, the drawing work is now complete and a few Cameo paper cuttings have been done to adjust the lines, work out the folds, and prepare for the 3D detail. My options are open to construct the body in etched brass or Xerox Laser Printed sheet (like the DART), the brass will require painting and the Xerox wont- so if I can get the Xerox to work to an acceptable level all liveries will be available! I'm using a Kato generic chassis for this one, but I'm held up waiting for the order to be delivered- 4 months now! Here are a few photos of one of the test Cameo paper cuttings assembled up;- As you can see the front windows & panels required adjustment in the drawing, the next step is to complete the lower section of the body, then cut one out in plastic card and see what I have- not enough hours in the day! These will be available as RTR or as a kit There are a few other Gauge N Irish types getting the same treatment- D301, 071, 121, & J15........ Eoin

    Came across this image online which shows the vastness of the freight yards that used to exist at North Wall. Hard to believe that most of the yards and the stock shown here no longer exist. Estimate photo was taken in mid 1980's.

    How about for model making? This is a full size replica Tiger tank made from (wait for it) ... timber! The structure is built on a ford transit chassis and if memory serves took 2 years to complete. This Tiger was at a vintage military display in the Curragh racecourse some years back.

    Hi everyone, Firstly, thank you to everyone for your words of encouragement so far, both on here, Facebook, PMs and email. They have confirmed that entering the British market was the right thing for us to do. Now, let’s have a first look at our HUO ‘in the plastic’. OK, we’ll level with you. Tooling was going quite nicely until we noticed a flaw. We want our model to be as perfect as manufacturing will allow, so we have decided to alter the tooling to correct the issue. This has delayed the sample by about two weeks, but we are confident that the bridge between sample and production is very small, so it should not affect delivery time. Indeed, our factory is now preparing test parts as you can see below. Thankfully, help was at hand and a quick phone call to a leading UK-based 3D printing firm secured this sample. Please bare this in mind when analysing photos, and there are some parts missing which will be on the production model. As soon as the factory production sample arrives, we will share pics with you. However, this print is seriously impressive and was turned around in double-quick time. You can see its limitations in areas like the buffer heads, but overall, wow! The book is now open on pre-orders. As stated previously, it’s £59.95 for a pack of three and we are doing a rake deal of all five packs of pre-TOPS wagons for £275, including free two-day shipping to the UK and Ireland! We will offer similar deals on TOPS variants when we start taking pre-orders. As you have probably read many times at this stage, we believe that the devil is in the detail, and the HUO will be no different. Below is a parts diagram showing just how many separate parts go into one of our wagons. We want to give you the highest possible detail for your buck. Anyone fancy counting? 😊 Below are livery details and numbers for the first five packs of HUOs in pre-TOPS condition. Pre-ordering is now open! Our web software only allows for payment up front pre-ordering, so please bare this in mind!

    Hi everyone, I'm delighted to report that we have now received the first production samples of our HUO from the factory in China. Here are some pics, but before you have a good look, please remember the following caveats: 1. I'm terrible, I mean truly terrible at photography! 2. There are revisions that are needed to tooling. Now, despite previous reports you may have seen elsewhere, this does not cost the earth at this stage, and is easily done. The brake gear does indeed need amending, with the shoes slightly too small and the assembly itself being slightly too large. This revision has already been sent to our factory to sort out. The self-contained buffers are receiving further refinement too. 3. The bling wheels will of course, be toned down for production 4. It is a hastily hand assembled, made on a Friday afternoon before Chinese New Year, so the fit and finish is not A1, but it will be on the finished model. 5. The slight warping of the chassis parts are down to haste too, these will be rectified on the finished model. 6. The NEM Pockets are well off and are being dropped to correct NEM height for production. Cheers! Fran

    I got a new compressor recently which allowed me to finish most of the painting on the beet wagons. I forgot to drill the holes for the couplers on ten of them so I can't finish them all for the moment. Some decals and weathering to follow, and eventually a few shots of them running.

    Milton Keynes, Saturday Interesting day in the land of the roundabout and concrete cows and probably the biggest single day attendance of any show I've exhibited at, with around 3,000 people. Not the easiest place to access, but the club worked hard in quite challenging circumstances when even traders were muttering about it being 'too crowded' at times! Challenging for Arigna too, with a broken point linkage and a broken pickup on Fermanagh early on. Nobody seemed to mind we had to change the goods siding point with a screwdriver, while the new Deutz diesel had to double up on both the stores and cattle trains as I have not yet got any new axles for the J26. Never hurts to have a spare engine at shows... Otherwise the day went ok as was topped off by us getting the 'best visiting layout' award. Thanks to all concerned, am sure the club treasurer will be very happy with around £20k on the door!

    Hi lads, working on this now over the past few months, got most of the wood work done need to re done the far end curve as the wood somehow warped which is a pain. Plan is for 3 rai southern 1950/1960's so I can run Steam, Electric and Diesel together. I have one point motor installed, a cobalt digital job, Pretty simple enough. Just need to pony up for another 13 Dying to get onto the Scenery aspect of it now but need to sort the Track out first, the Yard is a bit too compressed but I will have to live with it. Where the O Gauge track / APT is will be a 6 road fiddle yard. the double portal bridge was bought around 10 years ago, Came in the post broken so I will need to re scribe the brickwork to blend it in with the other stone work. Wish I got the 40ft Portacabin now Amazing how much therapy watching the trains go by is...

    Thanks everyone, here's a look at the chassis and some of the details going on the wagon. There are 74 separate components going into each wagon! We will have some factory samples in the coming days and will have at least the 3D print on show at the Stillorgan fair this Sunday.

    Thanks to you all for taking part in the vote. As you can guess, the winner is an annual announcement. We are working on a small event for this which will take place on Saturday, March 3rd. Keep the day free in the diary and an eye on the forum in the coming days for further details!

    I cast my vote at 17.40, or thereabouts this evening, on the poll for how we wish - Irish Model Railways Ltd - to announce their product release information. I must say I am astonished at the number of responses to this poll. I shan't disclose the figures that was shown at the time I voted, it will become appear after you vote. May I encourage each reader of these posts to participate in this very important exercise. We, the modellers of Railways Irish, constantly bemoan the lack of items available to us, and then, when they are produced, we tend to complain about the costs. The point I am endeavouring to address is this - The larger we make our Market Place, the less expensive the product should be for us to purchase. An increased market and market potential should also encourage our Manufacturers to produce an increased product range for us too. Please cast your VOTE. I purchased my Ballast Wagons and Cement Bubbles from Marks Models whilst I was exhibiting Old Blarney at Warley, 2017. Hopefully, I can purchase some more when they are at Glasgow this Month. Do the decent thing - get voting - We all need to let our suppliers know what we want,. Don't vote, then don't complain when a product comes to market and it is not what you wished for or wanted!!

    Costs are one thing, but we're also keen to push the boundaries of what's possible. A certain detail implemented on a UK wagon, which transfers in spirit to the Irish scene, is a no brainer. That said, there'll be some stuff coming to our shores, in terms of tech, that's normally only seen on locos, because it's worth doing. Interesting times ahead, Gents. Rich

    Hi IRM Very disappointed with you guys that Mr musk got there before you! I know he has loads more money then you but your rocket would not be as big as his and it could be made out of lightweight materials- though I do recommend using metal near the engines just in case - plastic might melt with the heat....

    Also started some months ago (1 wagon about 6 years ago) are these there pallet cement wagons. With help from the upper echelon of Railway knowledge here I hope I have the Chain arrangement correct. I did not get enough chain to do each wagon so a trip to H Samuels is due to obtain suitable additional chain. (without the missus of course)

    There has been a long running discussion on what way things in preservation should be finished. As a teenage volunteer at Whitehead (over forty years ago) I worked on carriage restoration. The old wooden coaches were painted outdoors (no carriage shed, let alone scaffolding, safety harnesses, day-glo jackets, hard hats, or anything). Any paint that was donated, or could be got cheap, went on carriages. So, when those who might say "stop whinging about liveries and get your sleeves rolled up!" speak, I can absolutely sympathise. I am also, as those long-suffering here will know all too well, of the opinion that in this day and age, there is no reason NOT to paint things accurately, and for trying to pass on accurate information about the external appearance of things. So, truly, i do see both sides, and consider myself neutral, believe it or not. Both have a point; but neither are exclusively right. Opinion 1. The "livery doesn't matter" brigade. "It doesn't matter what colour it is, as long as it's preserved". (Maybe, but if it was blue, why not paint it blue instead of red?) "If it was broken up, there'd be no fuss, but paint it the wrong colour and there's war!" (very valid point!) "Sure they never painted them the same colour anyway. Inchicore / Dundalk / York Road* (*delete as applicable) just went to the local paint shop and bought what green / maroon / blue* (delete as applicable) they had in stock!" (Abject nonsense; all railways took a pride in their appearance and corporate images, and the GNR and GSR even appointed chemists in Inchicore and Dundalk, part of whose remit was to ensure consistency of paint mixes. Livery changes were deliberate, and the above urban myth appears to have originated in Whitehead in the early 1970s when it was pointed out by older people that the blue they initially painted 171 in was far, far too light!) "Well, I don't like grey locos. I like it black". (A pity, because while you're doing the work, and fair play to you; others aren't - perhaps the opinion of more than just the painter ought to be considered, especially if the thing was never black in real life?) Opinion 2. The committed non-nonsense volunteer. "You're standing on the platform there wittering on about the wrong gangway connection on this coach, and I've just spent three &*^# weekends in the freezing %$*^ cold, for no pay, painting it and varnishing it, and all you can come up with is that it's the WRONG *&^% livery!! I don't see YOU rolling up your sleeves doing anything useful!!" (Very, very valid point; though a little effort on paint choice might have made everyone happy for no extra effort?). "I haven't time to paint anything any colour. I have two broken toilets to fix before the train on Saturday, and I've no help. I'm supposed to be posting out newsletters this evening because they're two months overdue, but I don't think I'll be home on time, as i have to do overtime tonight in order to steam raise on Sunday morning - while you're in your bed!" (Completely valid!) Opinion 3. The historian. "This loco never had lining like that in traffic". (Yes, but it can be painted out of necessary?) "If a vehicle is worth preserving, it's worth doing it right and finishing it right". (If it hasn't been started already absolutely correct) "They should repaint this, and paint that one there the correct way." (And who, exactly, is "they"? Will you make a start this weekend, and buy the paint yourself?) Opinion 4. The armchair railway enthusiast. Well, they'll trot out the "should paint it this way" line too - but the answers from those at the front line are best not printed here! MY bottom line: It is clearly as easy to paint something one colour as another. Cravens were painted in a new livery - initially all over blue with yellow lining, later blue and cream, because of two reasons. First, IE were still using some stuff in orange and black, and wanted the Society to "distance" itself livery-wise from IE stock in case of public confusions over identity. Secondly, and this also applies to the Society's Whitehead set, those involved took the view that something entirely different was appropriate. Since Cravens were never in green (fine, though, they'd have looked in it), it's no more inaccurate to paint them blue as green. Some of the Whitehead Mk 2s never even ran here at all, and even the Irish ones never ran behind steam, so an approximation to a steam-era livery might do. Locos, heritage coaches and wagons: throughout the entire Irish heritage movement, those decorated incorrectly sometimes garishly so (like the zebra-striped "Ivan" at Whitehead), greatly outnumber those finished correctly. This even applies to every single goods vehicle in Cultra, the Castlederg and C & L coaches, and the incorrect tender markings on 800. I could go on, but reading my own comments above would appear not just churlish but hypocritical, given my opening comments. To preservationists I say - as a retired one, i unconditionally support everything you do. FULL stop. But surely, with the "exception of the exceptions"(!), like cravens, it's better to finish things accurately, The colour is the first thing you see of anything, and it's as easy to do it right as wrong, and nor more expensive....so.....! You are also providing value for historians, film-makers and modellers with no extra effort. What's arguable against that? To modellers I say - it's YOUR layout. You want a pink Fintona tram hauled by a tartan 201 class? Fine. Nobody can say you're "wrong". You want to buy a highly expensive kit and make it up wrongly? Sure. Your money, your time, your layout. BUT: if you want accuracy, as SOME do, its good for (a) the information to be out there, chapter and verse, and (b) it's a great pity if even a museum or operator of the genuine preserved article leads you unwittingly astray in terms of its appearance. Over'n'out. I'm sticking the kettle on, if anyone wants a refill.

    Model T Ford Tipper Truck This was my Christmas present to me - in other words, the missus gave me some spending money for the Reading Trade Show back in early December. It is a Duncan Models white metal kit. I started it on Boxing Day and have been faffing around with it ever since, mainly because I'd forgotten what a pain white metal kits are to put together. The castings are ok, though the very nature of them makes things rather chunky, with overthink edges. The main problem I find with white metal is that nothing much wants to stick to it, apart from 5 minute epoxy. Yes, I could have used low melt solder, but I don't have a temperature controlled iron, while superglue really doesn't like it at all - something to do with the release agent on the castings. So, clean up a piece, mix & apply the epoxy, find a way of holding the two pieces together for 5 minutes & repeat an nauseam... Life would have been a little easier had some of the parts fitted better, the front mud guards being especially awkward. The instructions were a bit basic too and although there was an exploded diagram, it wasn't completely helpful in telling me where to put things. So, constant referral to Google was needed to get a better idea. However, Model T Fords came in a huge number of varieties and were subsequently altered by their owners to suit their needs, so in the end, I rather made it up as I went along. For example, the kit comes with a rather open cab [no side windows] & I'm guessing it would not have taken too many soft days to add a more enclosed version. A bit of work with plastic sheet sorted that out. The front end gave me all sorts of angst - at one point, I was going to make up my own springs and steering arms from brass, but in the end, just added a few bits from wire. As for the hand cracked mechanism to make the tipper work, I really have no idea how the castings provided would work. Suffice to say, the vertical column with a screw thread was replaced with a 10BA bolt after the casting broke - another issue with white metal - and the other bits stuck in place as per instructions. As for painting, though it seems a lot were indeed 'any colour you like, as long as it is black', though many got 'improved' by their owners. Given that this one will be at least 15-20 years old [Fintonagh is set in the late '30s], more than a bit of rust and dirt has accumulated. The tipper section and roof are Ford Laurel Green, while the rest is the usual spray can matt black. Thankfully, it doesn't have to run [!] being just a static model that will probably end up at the front edge of the goods yard, collecting builders sand/gravel from one of the open wagons.

    This has to be the longest time to reply in the history of this site ! my apologies I have moved house in the meantime and am only getting back to sorting modelling matters now attached is a picture of Irish Rail Mk2a 4113 which was converted from a bachmann Mk2a FK , I filled in the centre door and fitted an open seating arrangement which is how Irish Rail converted the original. Interestingly enough the Bachmann Mk2a FK BR number is E13468, Irish Rail 4113 original BR number was E13469 the next in sequence .

    I started going to exhibitions/fairs simply in order to buy stuff for a housebound chap that I had built a layout for. I had little interest in British railways and believed that Irish railways were far beyond my possibilities, largely because of the loco issues - then I saw and bought a Murphy baby GM - and everything changed at that point. Modelling Irish railways has got steadily easier and better - sometimes we have to stop and think just how good it is for us now.

    In monetary terms, you probably aren't wrong in your assumption that a kit built version with all the bells and whistles attached will come close to, if not more than, the price of a RTR alternative. The big difference and the one that would keep me on the kit built/bashed road is that every time that wagon, coach or loco I've built trundles past I have the knowledge that I created that. I painted it, weathered it, added the extra details not included in the RTR version, I made something that isn't even available as a RTR and I took pleasure from building it. Money can't buy that. That's the hobby for me, emerging myself in the scratchbuild, kit build, scenic creation and reading round the subject I'm working on to learn more to help that build. Some people just want stock on their layout and see it run. I want those sheets of plastic on the workbench to bring something to life. Paul

    Thank you Murray it’s something I always wanted to do . With space also ,, and yes bray station is a tight squeeze and to add a turn table I never knew they had . N scale would be great .ideal . As im finding out with OO points ad length to the model very easy. And there is not a lot of photos or track plans . Lol i have done what seems a lot of research,looking at lots of internet. And came across the ordence survey maps . After I done research lol im going for dcc this time .lets see how I get on.

    Paddy and Colleen were making passionate love in Paddy's van when suddenly Colleen, being a bit on the kinky side, yells out,"Oh big boy, whip me, whip me!" Paddy, not wanting to pass up this unique opportunity, obviously did not have any whips on hand, but in a flash of inspiration,he opens the window, snaps the antenna off his van and proceeds to whip Colleen until they both collapse in ecstasy. About a week later, Colleen notices that the marks left by the whipping are... starting to fester a bit so she goes to the doctor. The doctor takes one look at the wounds and asks, "Did you get these marks having sex?" Colleen, a little embarrassed that she has slept with Paddy (let alone that she allowed the kinky boy to whip her) eventually admits that, yes, she did. Nodding his head knowingly, the doctor exclaims,"I thought so, because in all my years as a doctor, you've got the worst case of van aerial disease that I've ever seen!'
