    IRM A Class; Our First Locomotive!

    @Warbonnet Is there a fixed quantity of each loco/variant to be produced or will that be decided when it's closer to the time to squirt plastic based on pre-sales of each loco/variant?

    Ammonia wagons

    Fauvet Girel was the company, Dave. Leased to CIE by UK wagon leasing company, STS. Was some strange maintenance split on these wagons where CIE maintained the running gear and underframe but tank was maintained by Fauvet Girel I think.

    Anyone know when the CAWS, both unprotected and the later protected versions and toughened windscreens were fitted to these locos?

    IRM A Class; Our First Locomotive!

    Thanks Fran. This is like the Irish equivalent of the Hattons Class 66 announcement with so many liveries and detail variations. Simply amazing, but a long overdue model for any Irish modeller, so glad to see it will get the high specs treatment that IRM are now renowned for. I'm looking at six of the CIE Supertrain ones to start with, but I know that once the liveried examples become available that other examples will more than likely find their way into my collection. And to think this is only the first run of the models......2019 will be an expensive year for the Irish railway modeller community. Not complaining personally but my bank account will be.

    Brilliant announcement and sure to be a winner for IRM. Will the Supertrain models have tablet catchers and older type windscreens? Website seems to show updated windscreens for this version but CIE Supertrain liveried ones ran most, if not all, of their lives in this livery with older type windscreens. Fair play lads in any case. The missing piece in the main CIE model loco fleet has just been filled.

    Any more photos of the IRM layout? Looks like a pretty nice bit of modelling.

    Extracts from old Working Timetables

    Jonathan, unsure if you are still taking requests, but if so, any chance of a few pics of the section covering the Athlone-Mullingar (Midland) route from the CIE 1972 timetable please?
  12. Looking for a copy of the CIE Working Timetable for 1972 if anyone has one to sell. Failing that, if anyone has a copy, looking for scans or photos of a certain route if anyone willing to oblige. PM me please. Thanks.

    back to the 90's

    I also know this location well as it's my local station, and this was an extremely accurate representation of it around that time. Amazing modelling skills. What happened to all the buildings after it was dismantled?

    That livery looks really good with that logo; far better than the current logo. Speaking of which, any sign of MM considering a re-tool of the 071 to reflect the current loco configuration with new handbrake and no cab handrails? Potentially four liveries so far - black/silver with new handbrake and still with cab handrails, refurbished 071 in grey livery, 071 in CIE and 073 in IR livery all with new handbrake and no cab handrails.

    Nice job. What brand and colour code of yellow paint did you use for the autoballasters?
