    Stored Oil Tank wagons

    079 obviously had the kadee’s fitted, whilst the 20’ flat had an old dapol tension lock on it! 😛

    Omagh Goods Yard

    I'm delighted to see this layout progess the way it has! Well done! I know there was a lot of frustration around space, and the OO/n gauge debate, but it's great that you have stuck with it, and more importantly that you are enjoying the hobby and the challenges once more. Keep up the good work!

    End of the DFDS liners?

    Without getting into politics, has the new man at IE, Jim Meade, given any indications or opinions relating to rail freight and its long term viability? If The Port of Waterford becomes disconnected from the network, it doesn't bode well for any future Foynes development. What ever happened to the biomass power plant that was being built on the Asahi site outside Ballina? That was going to generate a fright flow at one stage.

    Dave182s Projects

    Hi Eoin This is it all laid out. Mostly resin, with lovely brass etches of the shaker screens and handrails. Also some whitemetal parts for buffers and underframe detail. To the right hand side you can see 2 clear plastic sheets with moulded windows, which is very clever!

    Dave182s Projects

    Hi All I’m crap when it comes to posting up workbench photos and progress, mostly because I have about two dozen projects started and none complete! However, I now finally have a small layout nearly completed (separate posts to come over the summer) and it has given me the drive to get some rolling stock projects done and dusted. I make no secret of the fact that I’m a fan of all things yellow, and the new layout has some sidings for PWD trains. So when asked recently what I wanted for an up-coming birthday present I put in a request and low and behold this lovely parcel arrived on my workbench! So this is a Kleinspoor HO scale Plasser & Theurer RM80 kit, and even in 1/87 scale it looks pretty impressive! My hope is to make a reasonable representation of Irish Rail number 780, RM76. What is the difference? I don’t actually know! This is the most complex project I’ve undertaken so I’ll genuinely do my best to post regular updates on progress, and as always any tips and input is welcome an appreciated! Can’t wait to get this finished! (first picture copyright Charles Cross, ontrackplant.com)

    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.

    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)

    IRM Plough Preordering Now Open!

    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!!

    121 Class Trial Suburban Livery in the 90s

  13. 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!🇫🇷🇱🇺😝
  14. Ah, thanks Hurricane! That makes sense.
  15. 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.
