    Hi Kevin, We understand that but the other option would be a retool of the chassis which would likely incur a significant price increase I'm afraid. We can investigate it nearer the time of production but we have plenty of other stuff to get through first. Cheers, Fran

    IRM Plough Preordering Now Open!

    Hi everyone, To compensate for the disappointing news about the Tara delay due to the super typhoon, here's the first engineering sample of the ploughs from the factory in China. The factory has painted it in NIR blue for some reason! Overall there is a lot to like but some changes required too. These will be conveyed back to China and changed before we received decorated samples. Please note that fit and finish isn't up to the usual standards of a fully factory finished model, that finesse comes later! Cheers! Fran

    Not a bad idea Chris, it might cheer us up too as we’re feeling pretty down about this delay tbh. All going well we might have something else to show tomorrow...

    Going to the Ploughing?

    Ran all the way to Heuston like that too. Just goes to show how strong the ICRs are, despite getting called 'plastic'. Good to see that the driver was okay.

    Hi everyone, Bit of a Tara update. As we reported last week, the Tara’s were due with us this week. However, nature has taken its course and as a result of a ‘Super Typhoon’ hitting the model railway manufacturing region of China on Sunday our delivery of Tara’s has been delayed. This is down to the storm itself, the fall out and damaged caused to local infrastructure. We’re currently looking to get a timeline on getting them on a flight out of China but it looks like it’s going to be delayed by a few weeks at least before everything is back up and running smoothly. We are also amid Christmas market stock leaving China, so its logistics silly season at the moment and getting a new slot on a plane could prove quite the challenge 😥 Apologies for this delay, but sadly nature is something we can’t legislate for in this instance. We will keep you up to date and will have more news when we have it.

    Subtle as a brick Robert! Keep those votes coming in lads, poll closes on Wednesday so let us know! The chip will be in the roof, leaving this lovely interior to remain unspoiled

    Thanks for all the votes so far everyone! So far it seems that most people want to source them from us. We will leave the poll open for a week and make a decision based on the results. Keep voting!

    Correct Noel, there will be a switch under the van to switch them on and off too. Fran PS. I never said you did.

    No problem John! We will have them for the ploughs when they arrive, but I can't see us selling out straight away so they should be available for a while after. We'll order enough to cover now and have some in stock to last us a while if that makes sense? Cheers! Fran

    DCC Decoders for Ballast Plough Vans. Let us know!

    Hi Noel, The chips are to give the end user an option to have control over the lights without picking them up and also to turn off the tail lights at one end (the van immediately behind the loco should have no lights on). It also gives a user control over turning these lights on and off during shunting movements. As some feel that they do not need these in their vans as you say, we are offering them DCC ready to cut down on this expense. The purpose of this poll is to state if you wish to buy your decoders for your plough vans should you want them direct off us, buy them elsewhere or decide you dont want them as you do not use DCC or just do not want that additional control so we can gauge how many to order. It's not the place for a wider discussion on the merits of DCC v Analogue etc, so if we could keep it on topic it would be much appreciated. Cheers, Fran
  13. Hi everyone, Just a quick question regarding DCC decoders for the plough vans; the cheapest we can possibly do them for is €25 per decoder direct. Are you interested in buying them or will you bother at all? They will be a top of the line, reliable decoder from ESU. Let us know in our poll! It is open for the next 7 days. Cheers! Fran

    We were wondering how long it would take someone to notice those...
