    Irish Narrow Gauge

    With the IRM announcement recently I reckon we will all be hoarding our hard earned over the next 12 months so I have decided to offer my Narrow Gauge stuff as swaps rather than eating up your cash. PM me if there is anything of interest Looking for Irish only swaps please but might be tempted with any exotic bits hiding in the loft. Pics can be supplied if required Had a great idea some years back to build a narrow gauge layout but time and the fact that I can hardly stick Lego together never mind model kits has made me realise this layout is never going to happenDerry & Lough Swilly 4-8-0Donegal 2-6-4T, No 14 Railbus, covered wagons, cattle trucks & open wagons Clogher Valley 6 wheel coaches & Horse Box's Cavan & Leitrim 4-4-0T, Covered goods vans There are also some OO gauge kits by Terry McDermott, J15, J26 UTA 4-4-2 UTA S Class most of which require motors wheels & gears Original SSM 6 Wheel coaches, 1st class, 1st/2nd comp, 3rd & brake 3rd. Model Wagon Co. GNR(I) Cattle wagons, white metal (16) There are other kits by Perseverance, London Road Models, Impetus & Micro Rail that can be used as Irish models So look in your attics, garages etc and root out anything you have not used for the last 5 years and talk to me.

    Hi KMCE, good to meet with you yesterday at the Bray Wheelers gig I could recommend a few spacers here if you need some?

    4 ages - RTR diesel loco evolution

    1977 was a pivotal year Noel, Lima changed their HO scale to OO Hornby had not manufactured any "Irish" models before the OO range was launched Lexie Tynan hooked up with Lima in 1977 when the Wrenn Brothers ceased their agency for Lima N Gauge and I reckon it was then that the HO Irish stuff was commissioned, just before they turned to OO gauge manufacturing So 77 would be the earliest for your polaroid, Hornby saw the Lima Irish bits some time later and launched their Hymek sets which lasted from mid 78 till 81 if I remember correctly

    Irish Narrow Gauge

    This is most of what I can find at the moment, there may be some more hiding about. Some locos have gears, motors & wheels, some are body only. Similar with wagons & coaches, some have wheels, some haven't . One or two have been reserved but I will let them go at this stage, been holding them for too long. PM for price if anything is of interest, have to work out the price later. I can send pics also. Cheers SSM GNR (I) 3rd 6 Wheel GSWR /CIE 1ST/2ND Comp + Lav, 2 X All 3RD GSWR / CIE Brake 3rd.

They make mistakes, Governments make mistakes, a couple of big breaths and get over it, there is always next year Sorry to hear about your experience miller but it happens all the time

    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

    LIMA Murphy Models

    I was looking in the vaults last night and I found these gems First is a Railway Modeller mag from 1980 featuring Adavoyle. There was some industrial action around the time this was to be published in May so the month does not appear on the cover. instead is is labelled as ""The Special Extra" Price 25p in pencil, UK price 20p It also has a "The Model Railway Shop" stamp on the cover, so a few unusual things about the cover. 8 pages of pics and info about the layout so loads there for anyone interested in this superb 21mm layout. I must say that this model of the GN Weedspray had me mesmerised for over half an hour when I first saw this layout some years ago, stunning. A cfew other bits that were also lurking in the vaults Looking for any info on the Sealink NIR logoed coaches, Lima did some back in the day but I never saw them with the NIR Logo on them
