    A closer look at our A Classes!

    Hi everyone, As the IRM A Class project progresses we are going to update this thread with certain milestones and in time show all the work that goes into producing a loco. Firstly, we are going to go through each loco we are doing day by day, giving a little history on each and showing what livery the IRM model will carry. So, first one first, A1! The class leader! As you may know, we are doing a highly collectible edition of A1 with a certificate and wooden presentation case in its as delivered livery of silver with sandboxes. This will only be available through IRM. It is also the best selling IRM A so far, jointly with A39r. A1 arrived at North Wall on July 4th, 1955 and would remain in its striking livery for only a few years as it rapidly deteriorated in service! The loco entered service in September of that year and was rebuilt with a GM power unit in June 1971. It would continue in service until August 1994, giving a service life of 39 years. There is a fantastic film of A1 in action in original silver on YouTube on the Southern Yard channel brimming with nostalgia. This is the condition our model will be in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOkWSudb-z0 Of course, you know where to order it, but here's a link to make life a tad bit easier: https://irishrailwaymodels.com/collections/a-class-locomotive/products/a1-a-class-locomotive Cheers!

    IRM Rawie Buffer Stop

    While the A Class announcement was on the lips of every Irish modeller since the Model Railway Society of Ireland's Raheny show, we did preview another all new model; the ubiquitous rawie buffer stop. These could be found across the Irish network for the past two decades and are still in use today. Our model follows a pattern unique to Ireland and will be available in packs of two for just €6.95! They will go on sale at the end of the year! https://irishrailwaymodels.com/collections/buffer-stops

    Hi gang, Not to work you all into a frenzy or anything, but we have passed the 50% pre sold barrier on these beauties already (9 days!) so this is officially the hottest model we have done yet sales wise! We cannot increase the production run on these as the CRail containers have already been ordered and now cannot be changed, so we would advise sticking your name down on these as soon as you can if you're considering them. You know what we're like; once they're gone.... Cheers! Fran

    IR, Supertain with IR logos or Supertain would all be possibilities!

    It’s also a damn cool livery. I reckon once that one arrives and everyone sees it they’ll want one! 😊

    Exactly Rich. The IRM flat has been designed to accommodate the CRail containers as they are the standard Arran says and we chose to use them from the outset. It would be pretty brain dead design wise to design the wagon without considering that tbh. This will be demonstrated when the tooling sample arrives later this year. Cheers, Fran

    No problem, we’re doing a special of any four packs for 375 which is 8 wagons and helps you save 25 quid which may help!

    No problem Colin, if you scroll up BSGSV has some good livery history in his post which might be of help!

    Hi Joe, not to blow our own trumpet or anything, but we have accurate CIE 42ft flats coming out early next year that would be suitable for your needs. More info here https://irishrailwaymodels.com/collections/container-liners Cheers, Fran

    Hi Colin, Many thanks for your kind words! If you wish to order paying a deposit, simply add the locos you want to your basket and select ‘bank transfer’ at the checkout. We will send you an invoice by email next week that you can login to and pay your deposit on. You can the go in and pay the balance on it thereafter! There will be room to convert them to 21mm. Cheers! Fran
