    Greystones Model Railway Layout.

    With the assistance of Eoin Murray, I have commenced a bench-top layout [out and back], loosely based on Greystones Station. This is the only part of the Dart which is an electrified and single track main, hence my interest. The photographs show work in progress. I am indebted to Dave Lindfield for the construction of the baseboard. The Dart. The newly completed baseboard. Photocopied templates used to determine layout.

    That flood light just makes me feel cold; is there a fire in the hut?

    Inchicore Class J10 Conversion From LNER J72

    Hi Eoin. Great shots, though you could be kinder to 617's driver. The worker is a slacker! Myles

    The J10 is looking great. Can't wait to see it running. As usual, a masterful conversion.

    Eoin was insistent, but it was difficult, even when doing the doggie paddle.

    New DART 8100 Model

    The photos explain how complex these hand-made models are. They are far from standard type, run-of-the-mill models and have me in awe of Eoin's skills, which far exceed my capacities. Now if he'd only hurry up and finish my €10 china, plastic-molded,Jinty. Oops, do I mean J10?
  14. Fine model of the the Bailey Lighthouse. Howth looks empty and I don't recognize the outboard motor. Not up to murrayec's usual standard, I think!!

    Track Cleaning Device Proto 01

    With the catenary due to be erected on my Greystones layout, the question of cleaning the rails arose. I found the solution [i hope] on Youtube. Basically by fixing a wooden block underneath a flat wagon that I found at the Bray Fair last Sunday. The block is easily demountable as the photo shows. It depends for its function on the two flat head plaster board nails, glued to the block and then inserted into the retaining holes in the wagon. Preliminary tests indicate more attention to the type of material for the block will be required, possible more weight on the wagon.

    I can confirm that the loco is not a "Jinty", it is a "J10". A typical example of Eoin's excellent modelling skills, though I draw the line at his proposal to install a pantograph, he claims it will be needed to boil the electric kettle.

    A really beautiful piece of work. just the standard one expects from a man who builds tools preparatory to the main task.

    Christmas is over, back into railway modelling on an intense scale but slow start. Dart in shop getting bogie adjustments and service being rendered, but these are just to show that we are still active. I take responsibility for the slightly perpendicularly challanged buffers in this shot.

    I am, especially with the weed grass growing in the cracks in the paving.

    Oh. This is equally important work. The Master has so much on his plate while I lack the skills he possess in such bounty, that progress may be slow, but it is persistent. [And he is standing at my shoulder as I type, with the static grass unit in his hand!] By the by, Kirley, he claims to that he has done further work on those bogies!

    Marvelous to see, Dave. The very best of luck. When is the official opening?

    The Master does the real work, I just look on in awe. I did get to paint some of the figures, though.

    That all looks very realistic. Well done. The "marshland" is very effective.
