  11. The Seige of Jadotville

    The fact that they had to surrender because of lack of supplies and ammunition was seen by the Irish Government as embarrassing and an excuse not to honour these brave men because of political and strategic errors by the UN at the time Indeed the term Jadotville Jack was used later in the Irish Army to describe anyone who neglected to do his duty. Great film by the way, check it out if you have not seen it, its on Netflicks.
  12. Joke for today...

    A friend got to the final of the local model railway competition. He lost on points. Never liked the troll who lives under the local railway bridge. He’s my arch enemy. Went to a railway fancy dress party. Everyone was wearing platforms. Got a couple of railway buffers going cheap. It was an end of line sale. I’ve always liked one-liners. That’s why I’m a fan of monorails. Ticket inspectors. You’ve got to hand it to them… What’s the difference between a teacher and a railway security guard? One trains the mind, the other minds the trains… I know someone who tried to runway after camouflaging a railway. He tried to cover his tracks. I miss the old days of railway when the engineer had plenty of esteem. Some local engineers took a train for a service, but the vicar said it was blocking the aisle. A train track and a motorway walk into a bar. The train track says “a pint for me, please, and one for the road”. I know an elephant who refused to travel by train because he didn’t want to leave his trunk in the baggage car. A friend of mine quit his job as a reporter and left town by railway. It was an ex-press train. And of course… How would you work out how heavy a whale is? You would take it to a whale weigh station…. Sorry, I'll get me coat..........

  14. GoPro Fun - Ride on a model train

    Noel Might I suggest that you put the Pro Go on a flat wagon in front of your loco and push it along? Should give a much better view of the layout
  15. eBay Watch

    Colin Because of the new MM 201's these Lima ones are not as popular as once they were I really try and avoid them and usually offer somewhere in the region of €30 - €40 for them as a trade in Would then try to get €50 or so for them after a full service

  24. 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
