    LIMA Murphy Models

    I propose to post pictures of all the models produced by Murphy Models in sequence from their days with LIMA to the current models produced by Murphy Models Lima produced models of British outline stock These were then offered to Lima agent in Dublin, Lexie Tynan He then accepted or refused the sets and the accepted ones went on general release here Towards the end of the 90's Tynan retired from the trade and Murphy Models began a relationship with LIMA that saw them produce some of the first authentic Irish railway models This is their first attempt , set # L105100X33 released in 1997, possibly as few as 300 made. It was released in the Lima Hobby Range line. It was classed as a starter set, It consists of a Cl33 repainted as an A Class # 015 This model had been produced by LIMA for Tynan and was accepted as an Irish loco at the time, the Tynan model was numbered 215. Coaching stock consisted of a Mk 2D #5228 and a Mk 3 Restaurant # 7115 It also came with a traffo and track. 300 Sets believed to have been produced

    World Cup

    ***UNBELIEVEABLE! PLEASE READ!*** FIFA officials have noticed that Croatia have been using a player that was yellow carded two games ago. He should have missed the last two games. Therefore, FIFA officials could disqualify Croatia from the World cup, meaning England could potentially qualify for the final and be on their way to the final! This news is official and can be checked on the BBC website. It was brought to the attention of the chairman of FIFA only 25 minutes ago. Go and check!... Carlsberg don't do statuses for the emotionally imbalanced, delusional dreamers that think they can win everything, but if they did, this would be the best status of the world cup 2018....

    Ballyglunin/Castletown

    It is proposed to build a model of the famous Ballyglunin/Castletown station from the film, The Quiet Man It will be built by members of the MRSI in their Dorset St clubrooms We then propose to donate it to the committee of the Ballyglunin Railway Restoration Project to be displayed at their fund raising events etc So I am on the scrounge! Already a good friend from this parish has offered to donate all the transfers we need and indeed any other small bits that may be required. Thank you Des! Has anyone made or converted a D17 loco #59? This will be our toughest item to acquire and we would really appreciate any help in sourcing one If anyone feels that they would like to be associated with this project through donating items that may be of interest or indeed dirty wads of cash please drop me a PM and I will be delighted to talk to you about the project Some more pics here: https://www.google.ie/search?q=&tbm=isch&tbs=rimg:CYjspv0UldGiIjim7e4yU8VVmnYCm1TNKLDGXfEyYOB9FGh0yR1_1sPv6xngjaQfu9hkaJDwSZKhoXzUc5oDcBRqZVioSCabt7jJTxVWaEeS9M-LG2L6vKhIJdgKbVM0osMYRpoyLFFlbtGIqEgld8TJg4H0UaBFBtJpgIaDxqCoSCXTJHX-w-_1rGER3wj4vjlHDrKhIJeCNpB-72GRoRJZuFi1zsMTUqEgkkPBJkqGhfNRGy5bJGXUXe7yoSCRzmgNwFGplWEQytfeDLTFfs&tbo=u&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjC87K82dHVAhXE7hoKHX7XC3MQ9C8IHw&biw=1536&bih=768&dpr=1.25

    They are serving their apprenticeship Paul, if I am satisfied with the painting I may allow them to do some ballasting Hard to get good help ( Both "apprentices" are in their 70's)

    It was the Bachmann box that threw me, probably used the running gear from the 158 and then used the box for storage Good spot John.

    Little models for little money

    Playcraft was owned by Mettoy, they were the Corgi Car makers. So around 1960 they produced cheap sets which were sold through Woolworths and sold for around £1 ! Made in HO scale and the sets were called after famous train stations, and disappeared around 1970.
