  1. IRM Cement Bubble Latest News

    Super job guys! Really well done and good luck with the show. See ye all tomorrow. PS - no pressure from me for my order - happy to wait!
  2. For those of you who may have missed it earlier this evening (and I include myself in this!) tune in to BBC FOUR (tv) at 2.30am tomorrow morning Monday for a programme titled 'The Joy Of (Train) Sets - the model railway story from Hornby to Triang and beyond!
  3. This link has been up before but you never get tired of watching it! For those interested in the art of mechanical snatching this is the best bit of video I have seen on it to date. Follow the link below and start at 2.24. It features a youthful Patsy Bolger, signalman in Enfield handing up the staff/pouch to the driver/snatcherman of a down 121 class. The next sequence, which shows mechanical snatching in operation is shot in Maynooth. Imagine what Health and Safety would say about all this today!! There's a lot more interesting stuff on this video too! Hope you enjoy it! http://www.euscreen.eu/play.jsp?id=EUS_524B0F1DFF9D4311A5271797E7849D5E
  4. The View from The Shard, London

    Here's an interesting and interactive view of London from its latest and tallest building, The Shard. This gives the viewer a 360 degree panorama over the skyline, with zoom ins, sound bites, and useful facts. There's plenty for us railway enthusiasts amongst the views! http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/interactive/2013/feb/01/view-from-top-shard-london-interactive
