    Oxford Rail are also doing a version these have the revised suspension (J hangers ) so they are nearer to the CIE ones . https://www.oxforddiecast.co.uk/products/class-b-tank-esso-unbranded-black-revised-suspension-47792-or76tkb002

    No the Esso wagons only went to Sligo , Oranmore and Claremorris the wagons to the bus garages would have been CIE fuel/oil wagons . Some nice pictures of these Esso wagons on p59 and p92 in 'Rails through the west '.

    Just one minor detail the Inchicore coach builders who put these coaches together were real craftsmen the rib's on the body work always matched the rib's on the roof this is very well illustrated in josefstadt's pictures

    That is one of the finest laminate coaches I've have seen and the bogies bring it to the next level.

    Great work, the four battery boxes make all the difference, the bogies are the puppies private’s . I’m currently finishing off an IFM bogie TPO but I’m am holding back in the hope that you might release a 8’0” commonwealth bogie .

    The dynamo was mounted on the coach frame with the belt attached to the axle with a belt housing which clamped the the axle this was wide enough to allow for movement of the bogie but belts would still break for those of us old enough to remember the discarded dynamo belt's littered about the permanent way .

    I don’t think these coaches had storage tanks , but with battery boxes there is a lot of confusion all of these coaches park royals , buffet cars and brakes had four battery boxes two on each side this was common practice, worlsey works supply them with only two battery boxes , I recently got a IFM TPO and this only has two as well when it should be four . I think the confusion comes from UK coaches normally having two but in Ireland particularly with CiE it is four or if its a TL coach then it’s no battery boxes .

    Y Yes they had dynamos and battery boxes some were later fitted with TL lighting but many would keep the batteries/ dynamo until they were withdrawal in the mid 1980's . Great work on the laminate
