    I picked up a set of Eazi Weathering Powders at a show some years ago - a handy set. They may still be available from a few sources, if they're what you're after.

    I'd agree with the above comments, dropping the height of the bridge would make it look more prototypical. The other alternative is build your own! This one springs to mind. Paul

    If you are up for it, there is scope to lower the footbridge to a more realistic height by reducing the first flight of steps. Thatโ€™s what Iโ€™m up to and the result is worthwhile. Stephen

    Next up on the workbench will be some Silverfox resin kits I've collected over past year or two. A class B&T livery (rebuilt stepped orange band) - 071 donor chassis C class flying snail green Eau-de-nil livery - 141 donor chassis Sulzer 101 class flying snail green Eau-de-nil livery - Bachmann donor chassis (BR cl 24 sound project) Dutch GSV - RPSI green to run with their mk2 rake These may take some time. Will start by doing some of the common work on all four in parallel to save time. Then its cut'n'shut time for some centre drive donor chassis. Silverfox A + C class kits Silverfox Dutch GSV kit + B101 class Sulzer kit due for 'eau-de-Nil' flying snail green livery That'll keep me busy for a while

    Well NIR fleet came up trumps and laid open the whole thing ! The generator packs were changed and after sometime in 1991 the detriot V8/ markon pack changed for a Cummings/Dale pack. I was kindly sent a CAD of these changes - not fully detailed but a good use. The single sliencer still offset to fit loading gauge The dale gen pack 3185mm long so roof hole that size plus a small bit. I had wondered why the depressed section was called a bath - it does not have vertical sides. The bottom of the "bath" is 950mm The top is 1100. The Dale/ Cummings silencer scales at 500 dia and is about 200mm above roof line. 1900mm long - just over 6foot long and 20 " in dia. Pictures in the Irish Rambler book and on Flikr show the first brakes had the Dale sets 1992-4 period but as late as 1998 possibly 915 had two still. Over to you gents if you can look in pics and see if dates can be confirmed. Regards and thanks to Ddu Varren for helping in spotting variations and dates Robert

    Ah MikeO D301 is a fantastic yoke! may have been responsible for the UK's Class 08 Yes the chassis will be a problem with the footplate on the 141 and 071! I think some modification will be required but not got one yet to hack.... Eoin

    Best of luck with this venture Eoin and fair play for opening up a path for N Gauge modellers of our fantastic railway. Judging by what you are producing now they will no doubt be top models. Much respect, Rich,

    Yes Noel I'm looking forward to it myself- I have a Modular Gauge N layout of Dun Laoghaire station developing up and will be needing a few of these for the DART introduction era section of the layout- does that confuse? The layout is designed to be adaptable, in this era we call it 'Multimedia', the layout will span the main developments of the station from the 1830's to DART introduction in 1980's- more confused?

    I'm not sure if this is the right section to put this in, but 111 worked a recovery service today for 228 which failed while working the 20.50 Enterprise on Tuesday. I took a photo of it as it powered through Dundalk with 228 in tow, which is attached to this comment. I also have a few photos of (8)111, 228 and 074 in Connolly which I took earlier this evening, which I can post tomorrow if ye want to see them!

    Thanks Jonathan. Somebody on here explained the reason for the white roofs last year and I vaguely remember it may have been to reflect heat, but I could be wrong. Photo of a BELL refrigerated container below, but it badly needs some weathering to get rid of the 'fisher price' toy look.

    It might be they will separate at some point and one will pull ballast wagons and the other will pull spoil wagons. Here is an old picture of double heading, not my picture.

    I've finally got around to trying out a new etch prototype I've put together. It creates the higher ends of the irish pocket wagons when using the Dapol pocket wagon. It will be available as a kit-aid and includes the relevant transfers and handwheels and wire. The etch and decal pack will cost โ‚ฌ18 and will do four wagons.

    Hi Lads, I picked up Big GM 077 today and very happy with her. The wife and kids had bought me some track, buildings etc at Christmas and Gareth at Trains, planes....Wicklow kindly allowed me to exchange them towards 077 and I finally got her paid for today. Another bit of progress for a small layout and a lovely looking machine.
