    IRM A Class; Our First Locomotive!

    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.

    Little Siddington

    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.

    Oops. Seems I did not have my Glasses on when I posted that but it is a Class 26 in Green they have not a 33. 2nd time I nearly bought a 26 instead of a 33. They have no 33's in that sale.

    Dublin Model Railway & Hobbies Exhibition

    Had a nice day out on Sunday. Enjoyed meeting the usual Suspects and and wow that Tara wagon is so nice. Delighted too that I got some nice Bargains from a few traders during the day. Best Layout for me was an N Gauge one from the lads up north. Ardrath I think was the name of it. nicely executed, not too much clutter and always trains running. I also wonder why Exhibit unfinished layouts, the large German one and O gauge were on going projects. No Steam on the Wexford O gauge one Delighted to see the Tea and sandwiches on sale again, Very welcome!

    IRM at the Raheny Show this weekend

    Just heard the Marathon will be on this Sunday which mean the city centre will be a no go area between certain times. Pain in the ar$e that now as I normally trundle down the Quays then to Clontarf and up to the school in the AM.

    MM 071 Battleship Grey

    FYI I used Humbrol 164 Satin dark sea Grey, Satin paint goes on a bit nicer too. If you are repainting an orange one I would suggest removing all the Printed Markings off as the outline will show through repaint.

    WMRC Baseboard electronics and construction

    You have to wonder if a SMT Part goes bang on one of these yokes It must be a nightmare to locate. I Saw the Layout in Camden while impressive with all the Leccy Gizmos, to a Novice the electronics set up look a bit over engineered! It is meant to have some Green on it for the Dublin Show at the end of the Month so looking forward to seeing it again.

    New motor(s) for the Hornby APT

    Whip out the wheel Sets and clean the Axles too, I did mine last week and there was a good bit of old oil and dirt there which contributed to poor running and re set the wheels using a Wheel Gauge. Kinda ok on a medium speed but pretty poor at slow speeds all this was on code 75.

    So picturesque with the fence. There must of been 100's of bodies found in the pit over the years after falling in.
