    R.I.P. Sgt Major!

    RIP he was great in it ain't half hot mum. There was something so commanding about his great booming voice. I would have loved to have seen a conversation between himself and Brian Blessed. Rich,

    Vote for IRM!

    The deed is done men in both categories. Imagine it though, being in the game as a newly launched company and already being in the running for the top awards. The hard graft always pays off in the end as does delivering the goods which has happened with every model released. Rich,

    I've been having a look at the Taras today and decided to have a look at them coupled with the supplied coupling bars. They look 100% better and unobtrusive compared to the TLC. They also give closer coupling. If you want to run fixed rakes and don't need kadees give them a try. Rich,

    Great Noel. The fact that you work for IE and get to go home and enjoy the layout is a win win situation if there ever was one. Enjoy the festive season yourself. Rich,

    21mm gauge track; the pros and cons?

    Scalefour stores do both sizes in ply also. P4 Track Co do packs of ply sleepers also. All the track I surveyed had 4 bolt chairs and P4 Track Co produce these also.. If you want to make a start on a little plank or diorama with a lenght of plain track download Templot and print a plain track template to get you started. It would be a nice project to start the new year with. With the encyclopedic knowledge JHB possess I am sure he will have lot's of ideas to mull over the festive period. Rich,

    21mm gauge track; the pros and cons?

    I did a lot of measuring of track and structures over the last 15 years on the Waterford Limerick line and all the bullhead plain track sleepers were 8ft 6, 9ft, and many were 8ft 9. Rich,

    A NICE TOUCH........

    Thanks for the card lads. It's a smashing gesture. It also shows that it is as much a gesture of friendship as it is a thank you from a manufacturer to their customers. You men and your families have a good one also. Rich,

    At least we'll recognize you if we see you at an exhibition Jason. Folks will be keeping you at arms length while holding their noses and there will be a swarm of blue bottles following you. Seriously though the wagons look amazing top work by our man. Rich,

    Seen the springs on an early pp sample George. The stars are on the ballasts and bubbles also. These men always want to push the technical and production levels to the limits. Rich,

    Got mine this morning and they are amazing. I'm really happy for the lads as they were really upset and disappointed when the weather put a spanner in the works and they had to take the long way to reach us. Fran always kept us up to date and informed with current news on when they hopefully would be here. From our side of the fence it was great to see how everyone showed such patience and support which I know really gave the lads a great lift. It's good to see such solid relations between manufacturer and customer's. The spare axle cups are also a nice touch as are the coupling bars. Rich,
