  1. Would anyone have a spare Pack A Irish Cement bubble cement pack that they are willing to part with?
  2. Murphy Models

  3. Selling this 1/76 scale Bombardier KD Class bus that is now sold out with the kit manufacturer as it just falls outside the period that I intend to model. Has not been removed from box for display purposes. Looking for what I paid for it; the original selling price of €150. Happy to post at cost. Payment by PayPal if posting or cash if collecting in person. Thanks.
  4. Glenderg's Projects

    Stunningly realistic weathering there. Well done, lad. That's class.
  5. Yes, spot on. It says Ennis 1983 on the Flickr caption. Thought photo was good from the point of view that not all cement trains were 20+ wagons. You could have a prototypical rake with the amount shown in the photo. Also, roughly a 60/40 split between ivory and orange wagons in this rake, so probably a good snapshot of how many had been repainted ivory by 1983. Mad to think that you can now re-create this train in model form without any kits or scratchbuilding.
  6. Here is a good shot from 1983 showing both orange and ivory bubbles running in the same rake. Not my photo btw. Just attached the Flickr link, but photo seems to appear in the new forum.
  7. IRM Bubble goes on sale

    Thanks Richie.
  8. IRM Bubble goes on sale

    When was the Irish Cement logo first used on the bubbles? I'm guessing around 1986 or 1987 as some Irish Rail cement trucks were also painted in Irish Cement livery around that time. Can anyone give a definite date?
  9. Cabra Cement Depot

    Would anyone have any photos of Cabra cement depot when it was operational, specifically the silos, signal cabin, office and huts or showing the overall layout of the place. Have found a few online and received some nice shots from one individual, but there are still areas of the site that seem a bit camera shy. Feel free to PM me if you don't want to post photos here. Thanks.
