    I was given these catalogues/pricelists at Stillorgan on Sunday I think it was a case of Keep D4 tidy, throw your rubbish in Raheny !! (Sorry Pat) The first one is from Youngs Model Railway Centre, Briscoe Terrace, Fermoy and its a 1980 jobby On page 1 there is a Hornby R792 Freight set for £22.45 and on page 5 some Irish Coaches and a Lima 5609 Cadet wagon The Zero 1 controller is advertised at £61 and £9.10 for the chip, these were the start of DCC controlling The second is in a 1979 Hornby catalogue and the pricelist is from Hobbie Crafts, 2, Sackville House, behind Clerys Dublin 1. Again they have the Hornby R792 Set but no other Irish bits.

    So yesterday at the Talbot Hotel toy fair I picked up this yoke Contents are unimportant as I have several good ones in reserve, but the loco was stunning as well. Its all about the box, best one I have seen and that was not many, boxed examples of the CIE Hymak are in the hens teeth category My mantra is firstly get a boxed example of the model, then upgrade till you have the best one out there

    Quick question people, How do you see yourself within the hobby? A runner, a collector, Irish only etc? I see myself primarily as a collector, must be in the correct box, all paperwork present and also detailing parts etc I would buy a model to upgrade what I already have or just for the parts or literature in the box, always trying to have the best possible version I can 10 years or so ago I collected Wrenn models and the variations within this genre was mind numbing, the same content could turn up in 7 or 8 different boxes and whereas the wagon would be the same it was the difference in boxes where the value and collectability lay Nowadays its Irish or made in Ireland only and it does not have as many variations, thank God Still some bits out there that I need to get my grubby hands on but the fight goes on!
