    Behind the scenes at IRM

    In a big day for IRM / Accurascale, our first British model arrived in from China and we have been flat out wrapping and packing them for shipment to their new homes! (thank you to those of you who have supported us with a couple of purchases of them despite modelling Irish, we appreciate that! )

    IRM Cement Bubble Latest News

    It really doesn't seem like that long ago since our first rake of ivory cement bubbles arrived. In fact, while the pack A variant arrived at the South Dublin Model Railway Club show in Blackrock, most of the packs B, C and D didnt arrive until mid November. Since then they've sold like hot cakes. So much so, that we've sold out of pack A, B and now we're running very low on packs C and D. So, if you want some, act now before they all go! https://irishrailwaymodels.com/collections/cement-bubbles

    IRM will be there too, with bubbles and maybe something nice and new to see in our cabinet Pop by and say hi! We will also have Accurascale UK outline hoppers on sale too, if you're into that sorta thing!

    End of the DFDS liners?

    Internal promotion. Jim has worked up through the ranks and has been acting CEO for a while I believe.
  5. Correct Graham, we are delighted to announce that our first batch of pre-TOPS HOP 24 / HUO hoppers are due to leave the factory next week! As you know they're being air-freighted in so we will have them for dispatch before the end of the month. The buffers and the special pack for Railway Museum / Rails of Sheffield are part of this shipment too. Exciting times for all of us here at IRM / Accura Towers. As the landing and release date draw ever closer, we have seen a big surge in orders over the past week or so for these wagons, which is heartening for us, but also shows that the demand for them is high. Some packs are well over half way to sold out already, so it's a bit like IRM in that sense! We have in the past week put the TOPS variants and the private owner pack on sale too and they have both seen strong orders as well. Focus now turns to next Accura models. Tara production and pushing on with the plough tooling. Not enough hours in the day currently.

    Just to let you lads know, we're at the 40% presold mark on the ploughs and it's pretty neck and neck in the order books. Looks like they're not going to hang around too long!

    Photographic Website Updates

    Managed to catch Merlin today now I'm back from the other side of the water. She powered through West Dublin on her way to Connolly for the trip back north. Merlin at Clondalkin Fonthill by franburke, on Flickr

    Hi Mmie, Yes, we have upgraded the site to make navigation even easier, while it also plugs into a slick stock control system for us, so no more finding sold out bubbles down the back of the sofa! We will be sending out an email later this morning which allows you (and everyone else) to reactivate their accounts. cheers, Fran

    It was a tough one, but we managed to smuggle him out of the country on some Accura business....
  13. What's better than an orange bubble? An orange bubble weathered by Richie.... A gentle dusting really makes these the nicest of all the cement bubbles if you ask me. Really makes the detail pop out! Still in stock, but who knows for how much longer? https://irishrailwaymodels.com/product-category/freight-stock/cement-bubbles/

    Irish wagons V English wagons price wise.

    Thanks for the support Tony, we appreciate it as every sale helps us. re doing GNRI wagons. Do you think we’d sell 12,000-15,000 units of say, a GNRI open wagon in the UK? I thought it was a pretty niche part of a niche market tbh, but I could be wrong.
