    Your second picture, they area all blue under all that dust. Same as this Here's a gem I just found through Google.

    They were basically always grey with dirt, dust. It's only in the past 10 years that the Tara wagons have got more regular maintenance, that they are now cleaner more often and they get repainted more regularly. Ever since all the cement and shale traffic stopped Limerick works have more time to give to the Taras and it shows.

    Fancy driving larger scale trains..?

    Same here. Only did stage 1 yesterday evening, was amazed to have a mail this morning at 5am for the stage 2 tests. I didn't expect to pass the first part.

    A NICE TOUCH........

    Agreed thanks you fur the cards. But on the same note my other half got her card sent to her Parcel Motel address. Now granted it was most automated address list. It cost her 3.95 on the account and held up valuable limited space considering the time of year. Just something to note. But cheers lads and hats off to 2018 and bring on 2019.

    112 looks right at home with those taras, it was no stranger to them either. I don't believe 111 or 113 aver got round to hauling them, even when 113 was on short term loan in the early 2000s along with 112 on long term loan.

    They go to Limerick all the time for works. There is a small wagon works shed in Northwall for minor issues. Usually 1 wagon a week goes to Limerick for maintenance. They go as part of wagon transfer trains from Northwall along with any LP or LX flats that need work, usual;y stop off at Inchicore on the way there and back.

    Don't think they ever went south of East Wall Junction except for recently when 8209 had to haul a failed empty Tara back to the Connolly wash road before propelling it back to Fairview and reversing down East Wall back to North Wall yard to dump 085.

    Still need to swap 036 and 054 around. Both same just numbers.

    Thanks, just that it stands out on the site next to 027 in the same livery cause 027 is all same shade while 056s brighter roof jumps out.

    No, not on 056. I know what the dayglows look like. 056 is in supertrain with IR and no dayglows. It has 2 different shades of orange in the artwork.

    Also on the artwork, I think its 056. It has bright IR orange roof and CIE tan below the black band. Is this how it will be produced, very interesting detail if so. Think yous have 036 and 054 mixed up on the site artwork.

    Bonus points for the BGM up front.

    They really look great running behind an 071, can't wait get an A up front. These Taras make you wish the MM 071s had rotating axel caps too, really adds to the running quality. They look great from every angle and just look "right". They really show up the design compromises Murphy had to make with the scale of the 71s in the buffer width spacing. Yet again, top marks lads. More than worth the wait.
  17. Only 2 071s are now left in the freight livery with 075 only just gone in in recent days and all cab panels stripped off already. 074 and 086 are the last two in line. 079 and 072 are in the works painted up awaiting final finishing before re entering traffic.
  18. Don't know if it's the camera settings but in both pictures the leading end of 074 looks warped at the bogie arch. Body overhaul gone wrong or a bent frame?
  19. 074 back in traffic after major overhaul. Don't know when exactly it was released from the core. The taras are now being outshopped in a deeper red lately than the usual oxide brown.

    Hope they don't bounce, there's a good bit of weight in them. Currently have 6 of the wagons on as a test and the weight of just them is very impressive. Going to see if I can get 082 here to shift all 20 of them. Going to be good load test haha.

    Just picked up my order. Just wow. Take a bow team. The bar has been pushed ever higher. Put the feet up and crack a few beers. 👍
  22. Railer


    Lucky swine. Enjoy them when they arrive. Explains why the lads have been so quiet last few days on here but they are regular enough on the Deltic on RM web. Glad they finally got here, longest 2 years ever.

    Yes that's them. Then the CAWS protectors are the bars that sit proud of the buffer beam with the rail head level grill between them.

    LIDL Display case

    Can anyone recommend a display cab wall mounted that can be picked up in store anywhere. Looked at Ikea and nothing really suitable. There's a few on Amazon but with very mixed reviews on quality and defects.

    Preorders of IRM Tara Mines Wagon begin this weekend

    Really, really hoping these are not delayed further but with Dublin Port closed yesterday and Storm Diana Part 2 today, I feel otherwise. These poor taras are on some epic saga getting here but I'm more than sure they are going to be the dogs ying yangs. You guys want any help on your QC on these when they land
