    IRM CIE 20ft Container

    Very nice Fran it's good to see that things are so advanced. Got my Scalefour news today through the letterbox it's good to see the HUO pre prod model getting a positive write up. Rich,

    I've heard great things about this layout and seeing the pics confirms how amazing it is. It's refreshing to see s model in an urban setting especially when it is modelled on a prototypical location. It has all the hallmarks of being great it is that amazing. Rich,

    Behind the scenes at IRM

    If it has to be the van then it has to be the van Pat. Just make sure the tv is an old school tv and not a flat screen job it just won't go off the same way when it hits the ground, and make sure you book out the whole top floor of the hotel. Rich,

    Keith Moon and John Bonham rolled into one Pat. Ditch the van it will only have any credibility if it's a Roller. Rich,

    IRM Plough Preordering Now Open!

    Ordered mine and can't wait. It is extraordinary that a wagon which so few of were built will be recreated in model form. Reasonable price as well when you factor in the specs and small numbers being produced. An all round winner. Rich,

    It's a really fantastic model men it's going to be a huge success. Rich,

    First Look at the IRM Tara!

    It's always nice to see the model as it develops especially at this stage as you know that the FP model is getting closer. What continues to amaze me is the amount of hard graft that the lad's are putting into both IRM and Accurascale and the continuing standards of excellence of the models. Back to the sample above it's a winner already and surely the bar is raised again. Rich,

    First Look at the IRM Tara!

    I was at a Scalefourum Seamus and a layout had stock with sprung buffers. They had Markits brass sprung buffers fitted to MK1's and wizard models fitted to wagons. It looked amazing when shunting . Just imagine having to back up a set of Tara's or Ferts buffer to buffer and you will start to come around to the idea. On the real wagons they rarely touched buffer to buffer running forwards. It is a nice touch and as Stephen has said if it isn't costing anymore than standard fixed buffers then it's a win win. The SLW class 24 is fitted with a prototypical working set of sprung buffers. Rich ,

    To be honest Seamus I've seen lads in the scale four society using sprung buffers to great effect in both pushing and forward modes, when it's done right it looks mighty effective. I suppose it comes down to what type of operational movement one likes. Rich,

    First Look at the IRM Tara!

    The underframe detail looks sweet men, the vac chambers, the pipe work, brake gear and I love the springs. It really captures the bulk of the prototype. I love the bogies and the rotating axles. Provision also for 21mm. Delighted that sprung buffers are included. I don't think that I have seen a bogie wagon of that quality at that price from any manufacturer. It's a first for models in 00 especially when you look at the price that the Hornby Biomass wagons were selling for. The bar is raised again and I can see myself saying that for future releases also.

    Luas Breakdown

    Excellent post Pat. As for the trolling it's always the same two time and again. There is little sense to what is repeated repetitively. It's sad really. Rich,

    Luas Breakdown

    I'd have to disagree with the first 2 posts myself and in all honesty I'm not surprised. We had the kids in Dublin for a few nights a while ago and my daughter asked could we go out to the Dundrum center for a few hours. We got on the Luas at Stephens Green and I really enjoyed the journey and saw parts of Dublin I hadn't seen before. Rich,
