    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 .

    Now that would be a site walking through the make up counter aisles. Middle aged gentlemen sat on the make up stool cradling their prized loco as a glammed up dolly applied the final touches to it. I'd pay to see that. Paul

    My local Boots store has a very large make-up section. I have considered taking a baby GM in and asking for advice. The girls really do understand how to achieve a 'look', although they are generally trying to go in the opposite direction... To be fair to them, I once had to take back some Philishave shaver spares, as the part supplied in the sealed packaging was wrong, although the packaging details were clearly correct for the intended shaver. This involved being sent to the cosmetics counter, as this was where these things were dealt with. I expected a long and arduous argument about it, but the girl was absolutely clued-up and understood straight away - in thirty seconds I came away with the right parts.

    Hi MikeO Thanks for info I have a BR Class 20 chassis I've looked at, the 121 & 141 scale body works out at 82mm so this chassis needs a bit of work, as you say it needs about 10mm taken off it. I'm well capable of modify this, but if I sell the model as a self build kit most would not, that is why I'm investigating the use of a new generic off the shelf Kato or Tomix chassis, though this is proving difficult on getting supply! On the 071 the BR Class 37 looks possible, I have a few, but I'm way behind on the body drawings for this! and will not be able to get at it for some time, I also want to hold off until I prove my ideas on the 141 build- Xerox sheet body or will it be brass and have to paint? The 141 body artwork has gone off to the printers to try the Xerox laser print, for colour test, cut test, and to see if it folds up to an acceptable level! Here is an inkjet test print of the 141 1980's CIE livery;- Eoin

    Certainly the panels on the sides and roof can be removed leaving the inner skeletal structure intact. Rich,

    Actually the footbridge has already been lowered by 10 steps and I may remove a few more. Before starting on it I found some photos on line showing the model lowered even further but the overall proportions seemed off, possibly because the model may be too wide.

    Agree different shades can look well, but the roofs on those Mk2d's are a bit like H&S hi-vis jackets. They are so bright marshals could use a pair of them to direct aircraft.

    I've had a quick search and it looks like that source may have ceased - I have no idea who I bought them off, it would be eight/ten years ago. There are plenty of other sources that seem to be current for much the same sort of thing. We have a large exhibition here next weekend, I'll keep an eye out and see if I spot any good sources. There could well even be people still shifting old stock, I suppose..

    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. That’s what I’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? Eoin

    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 €18 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.
