  5. Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

    A kind of a millionaire joke: A husband and wife are watching "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire," and the husband winks and says, "Honey, let's go upstairs..." The wife says no, so the husband asks again. Again she says no. So the husband says, "Is that your final answer?" The wife says yes. The husband says, "Well, can I phone a friend?" Tweet Share
  6. bidding for NIR 071

    Its the old story Looked at the bidding history and its basically 2 guys locking horns over the loco One of them will pay well over what its worth If another one comes on the market it will probably make about £180 as the lower bidder on this one will not have to compete as hard as he has on this one and the highest bidder, other than these 2 millionaires' only went to £134 I would expect 1***M(646*) to win judging by the amount of bids he places in the last hour

  9. 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
  10. Joke for today...

    Since I put up the pic there have been only 50 views whereas the Lima/MM thread has over 400 So I am right, no sense of humour hereabouts, with the exception of the few regulars
  11. LIMA Murphy Models

    Picked this up over the festive period Its the Lima 1979/1980 Catalogue The interesting thing about this catalogue is the Irish Collection of Lima Trains insert that accompanies the catalogue A 12 page supplement that has some weird and wonderful non existent sets pictured Not a bit of Irish stock to be seen Now it starts to get interesting, Set 10 3723 which there is a pic of on page 10 of the thread Set 10 4422 which there is a pic of on page 24 but without the box lid A set that never hit the shelves 10 4223 C.I.E. Transport with a Unigate Milk Tanker Set 10 7022 C.I.E. Supertrain set, pic on Page 23 of this thread Some N Gauge Set 12 1123, Pic on Page 15 of the thread Set 12 3122, C.I.E. Fowler Passenger set, I have never seen one but I imagine it does exist as I have picked up some loose coaches and locos over the years Rear page, Lexie Tynans Toys International address complete with 6 digit phone number
