  1. Popeye's Workbench

    Ah here! The benchmark of modelling on this site just keeps getting higher and higher! That's a fantastic piece of work.
  2. How often do Loco's take on fuel?

    Thanks BSGSV!πŸ‘
  3. How often do Loco's take on fuel?

    Just reviewing this post. Can anyone tell me where locomotives take on fuel at Inchicore? Are there fueling points on the slabs outside the running sheds? Say here for example? (Credit: Google Maps)

    I'll take 1 of each pack, but it will be June before I'll be parting with my cash as the tax and insurance are due on the wheels at the end of this month!!

  7. Hi All I have a Klienspoor kit to be built. Mostly plastic with brass detailing. Single wagon that looks a little more complex than say an SSM ammonia tanker, but not as complex as a brass steam loco. This is a birthday present so a deadline of the 15th June, giving a 9 week build time. Finish required- painted and decals applied. This project is a little beyond my expertise. If anyone has a genuine interest in taking this on, and has the relevant skill set please pm me for further details and to open a line of conversation. Thank you for taking the time to look! One final thing, a grasp of the French or Dutch language would help as that appears to be the languages used on the instruction sheet!πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡±πŸ‡ΊπŸ˜
  8. Ah, thanks Hurricane! That makes sense.
  9. Hi All! I see some discussion on facebook and other forums about the various works going on across the Irish Rail network in what must be one of the largest possessions ever! I know work at Sallins was to start today, Good Friday. Anyone been down that way today? I assume there will be interuptions to road traffic also? Hopefully you will all be good enough to share your photos and videos from the various locations on this thread.

    Something small to start with... http://eiretrains.com/Photo_Gallery/Railway Stations B/Ballina/IrishRailwayStations.html#Ballina_20040705_0005_CC.jpg The Rawie buffer stops are something that feature all over Ireland at this stage. The is a 1/87 version available on Shapeways but it looks a bit too small for OO gauge.
  14. Re-painting Buses (EFE/Corgi/Oxford etc.)

    Thanks again Eoin. Yes, it's the heavy coats of paint applied to these vehicles that was scaring me. The often look like Mr. Kipling cakes!
  15. Re-painting Buses (EFE/Corgi/Oxford etc.)

    Thank you for your reply #Tarabuses. I thought there might be a site for such questions! I'm always willing to give a respray a try be it railway or vehicle, once the glazing can be removed! I hate hate hate masking windows! When respraying diecast vehicles should the paint be striped back to bare metal or can paint (undercoat and final finish) be sprayed over the factory applied paint job? Thanks Eoin!
