    OO Works 101 - Coming Closer!

    It does look better in the 2nd shot. I think I'll wait till I see a review here when someone gets there mits on one before I part with the Hard Earned. Looking forward to seeing what you lads have to say. Maybe it is the all over grey makes it look rather plain. A green pne like Noel Mentioned would be easier on the eye. Did you get a Merchant Navy Leslie?

    OO Works 101 - Coming Closer!

    Just got an invoice for this.. €360.00 odd it looks to be. I might get killed for this but TBH it looks a bit Clunky, The Tender , Bolier area looks a bit rough and those springs on the tender just seem blobby and lack Finesse. Maybe it is a test sample. Mmm, I might plum for a H Class Push Pull set instead and wait for Accruascale to bang out one along with the 800. Just not sure now.. G

    Will there be a 1968 version of A16 in Luggage Van disguise in the not too distant future. Twould save few lads tooling up a conversion set and would sit nicely with the J15 due.

    'Huge' Model Railway in 'De Paper'

    I looks a bit smaller than the previous one I saw. I think there is a mish mash of everything from US, Continental,Irish even a Chinese Loco if I am not mistaken there!. He has way to much stuff then don't we all it seems.

    IRM A Class; Our First Locomotive!

    Luckily I needed a few bob a few months back, After much deliberation I flogged off the 2 RTR ones I had and 2 bodies. Normally it does not work that way for me! Re the one Wind Screen, Que the loads of emails to IRM towers saying one wiper is missing off my Loco! there were loads of questions re the lights on the Black and Tan 141 with fellas coming in to the shop and saying only one light is working.

    Preorders of IRM Tara Mines Wagon begin this weekend

    Got to see these wagons in the Flesh last weekend and wow they looked superb. My finger hovering over the buy button at the moment. The Kids Braces may have to wait a small bit longer I reckon. The UK Wagons on show to were immense in every way too. The Etched steps on the PCA Cement Wagon were superb, As I mentioned to the Lads I should of Married a Chinese lady given their ability to produce models in such as fashion when compared to my efforts! It must be a fantastic feeling for all involved in IRM to achieve such excellent products in such a short time, Well Done.

    Ah I see some Steamers on show!. All I I saw was a Solo Class 15 and a 37 bombing around. TBH it did not hold my interest too long. However the layout should be some set up when it is complete. Some nice LNER pacific's Clattering down the P/way I hope at some stage would be sweet. The Control Panel is some set up too.
