  1. The IRM flat hasn't been released yet so there aren't any samples to try. Rich.

    IRM A Class; Our First Locomotive!

    Totally agree Pat the herculean work done by the folks in these societies is massive. It's a passion and in some cases a vocation for these wonderful people. Reading a lot of posts and the above post you have quoted and their content over several threads is becoming tiresom and boring. It is also an insult to these people in these societies. Rich,

    Splendid choice men something to please everyone. Specs sound amazing and no doubt this will raise the bar not only in Irish 00, but also for other manufacturers models. Rich,

    I brush on microset and set the decal on that area. Use micro sol straight away by brushing on to the decal if it is going on an uneven surface. The micro sol will make the decal curl up but over the next 24 hours it will soften the decal and it will set into ridges and recessess such as between planks on a wagon like the one in your picture. I have used decals that are a couple of years old using this method and never had any problems. HTH Rich,

    Preorders of IRM Tara Mines Wagon begin this weekend

    Don't be disappointed men these things happen it's nothing but bad luck due to a natural disaster. The fact you have found a resolution to the logistics side of things shows how much work as been going on in the background and at all hours of the day and night. As has been said before we appreciate the hard work. Rich,

    Okay so the length of the model is a contributory factor thus affecting modelers with certain radius layout curves. I'm sure that must have really worried Hornby and Bachmann with their class 60 and 66 models. Hattons will be bricking it if they read that quote, now that they are producing a 66. Rich,

    It's always made me laugh how much scorn is levelled at the Lima 201 model. I can clearly understand the sentiment about the price the seller has listed the model for and it is hugely overpriced. But one of the descriptions of the model is a bit snidey when you consider how some folks have been extolling other manufactuers products that in some cases are completely fictitious and seriously overpriced . Without the Lima 201 would we be in the current climate of fantastic loco coach and wagon models we have today, I doubt it. As an aside I do believe that the shade of orange on the Lima 201 is a lot closer to the shade of the prototype then it is on the MM original 201 as delivered livery. Rich,

    I'll be investing men. It's a nice touch and should make operating more interesting and cool at the same time. Rich

    barrow street

    This layout belongs in the epic category. You don't see many urban scenes like this. I always thought Nigel Burkins Platform 4a and 4b (although smaller than Barrow street) was a great piece of modern urban modelling and this is right up there with it. Rich,
