  1. Irish cement silo

    Hi lads, Does anybody know where I can get my hands on a cement silo similar to the prototypical examples in either Cork or Tullamore? Thanks, Seán.
  2. Electrofrog or Insulfrog??

    Hi lads, I know this question has probably been asked a million and one times but which type of points are better; electrofrog or insulfrog? I am planning a new layout with more complicated track work than before so I need the best running quality and reliability possible. Thanks, Seán.
  3. Ennis to Waterford Timber

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone had any information on the timber traffic from Ennis to Waterford. I was unaware of this traffic until I saw a picture in the 'Rails through the West' book. The picture is from Limerick Check and shows 123 and 131 with 9/10 laden bogie timbers. The caption indicated that it departed Ennis at 17:00. The date is Saturday 13th of June, 1998. on the Ordnance Survey of Ireland 'Mapviewer', the satellite image from 2000 of Ennis shows a timber train in the yard so the flow ran at least until then. Does anyone know when it ceased? Why it ceased? How frequent was it? An help will be greatly appreciated, Thanks! IMR.
  4. 'Relay Train'

    When 'Relay Train' is listed on the weekly circular, is it referring other LWR or what? Thanks, Seán.

  8. Seán's Workbench

    Hi all, some pretty basic stuff to start off my workbench. No elaborate building or scratchbuilt locos, just a step-by-step guide of how I make signs for my layout:) Now a few images of the LED display I am making for my station. Seán (IMR).
  9. Bagged Cement wagon kit chassis

    Hi all, I am thinking of purchasing some Irish Freight Models bagged cement wagon kits but a chassis is not included in the kit. Can anyone recommend a place for me to buy a suitable chassis? Seán.
