    They are the stored air braked bogie shale wagons which are similar to the Tara's but without the lids and have been parked on the up sidings at Limerick that you probably seen Noel-and you would have been travelling on a 2800 railcar into Limerick as it was highly unlikely that a 2600 railcar was used for the shuttle

    Tara Junction.

    A box arrived a few weeks ago from a model shop in Germany.....and from its contents I built this.....and then after some weathering put it to work..... A late Saturday night possession on Tara junction seen some ballasting of the relief lines with 0117076 hauling a HOBS train which discharged ballast along the down main line followed by the on track machine which spread the ballast evenly all under the direction of Tommy the Permanent way inspector....

    Tara Junction.

    And so....the first batch of the superbly designed and manufactured Tara wagons arrived today at Tara junction to undergo trial runs and platform clearance, Here we see retro liveried locomotive 071 haul the short four wagon consist on a gauge clearance special around the layout, Thanks very much to the lads at IRM HQ for these superbly detailed wagons, well done from a delighted customer. I removed the tension lock coupling on the rear wagon to glue the vacuum brake pipe into position and also and more importantly was the fitting of the two red tail lamps to complete the set of wagons.

    Tara Junction.

    After a recent spate of failures on the real railway to a locomotive and a permanent way machine,071 locomotives were dispatched to recover the failed units back to their respective depots for repair, I was fortunate to be able to recreate both scenes in model form. When 201 class locomotive 234 failed in Ballina retro liveried locomotive 071 was sent from Inchicore to haul the locomotive back, Here we see 071 hauling 234 through Tara junction station, Again when track recording inspection car EM50 failed at Boyle station, locomotive 080 was sent from Connolly station to haul the machine back to North wall and ultimately Kildare plant shop. Here we see the unusual sight of 080 hauling EM50 in the opposite direction through Tara junction station.

    I was delighted finally to get my hands on a Dapol HST Intercity 125 book set in its iconic blue and grey livery, It is a fantastic model and is certainly no comparison to the Graham farish version which I also have, The power cars have directional lighting and a smooth running motor, I also purchased three weathered TTA tanker wagons which are seen here delivering fuel to the MPD behind 47 635.
