    Irish Bufferstops

    I love buffers Would like to open a chat on the various options available for modellers - from 'RTP' (ready to plonk) to white metal kits, brass etchings, resin castings - that represent irish or irish-able buffers in all their glory

    Layout Plans

    I would generally run the mainline at the back which will give you the largest possible radii / rate of turn, which will make bogied freight and coaches (and larger locos) look and run best. you also get the added benefit of the mainline running passing in and behind scenery, buildings, etc, giving more of a sense of 'travel' if you know what I mean

    IRM Fert Wagon

    8-12 I think was the norm. From the IRRS Journal, 2002 " On Wednesday 19 December, 230 + 12 bogies of fertiliser arrived in Portlaoise at 10.15. The next day saw 10 laden fertiliser wagons in Adelaide yard in Belfast. On Thursday 20 December, 10 empty fertiliser bogies were worked to Shelton Abbey, (Arklow) to be loaded for Belfast. Fifty-four empty bogie-fertiliser wagons were observed in North Wall in early December."

    Hi everyone, The South Dublin Model Railway Club will be very kindly hosting us at their clubrooms in Knocklyon, Dublin tomorrow night (13th June) from 9pm, where we will have decorated samples of the Tara's as well as cement bubbles and Accurascale HUOs for you all to look at. There might be an additional surprise to see too, but cannot confirm just yet! This event us open to the public, so all are welcome! We appreciate that this is very short notice, but sure what else would you be doing of a Wednesday evening?? The SDMRC are also providing some catering by all accounts!

    IRM Plough Preordering Now Open!

    Hi Barl many thanks for the post! ill check into the gift card glitch. It should not include VAT! you can order on the website and choose bank transfer. This then pushes the order to our accounting system which is a lot more flexible than the web front end. Once you have the order ID you can send funds by card, PayPal, online banking, gift card or cash by carrier pigeon!

    3D printing + DIY CAD

    I reckon it's feasible for short run items, say 25-50 items. On that bases, a coach, for example would work out at (best case) 100-150 euro a coach (bearing in mind you'd still need bogies, assembly, etc).

    3D printing + DIY CAD

    Hi JHB, Essentially, you'd need to commission a CAD tech with 3D printing experience to produce the item in a CAD format suitable for printing. For a coach say, you are probably looking at €2000 or so in time / cost for that bit. Then, upload to shapeways or a similar service, and you'd probably pay between 60-100 euro per print, assuming high end materials, and a moderate number of parts and size of parts.

    3D printing + DIY CAD

    I agree Noel, the tech is coming on well, and I can loosley confirm, without giving much away that the 'blank' flats with die-cast chassis, etc, from IRM will cost a 2 digit percentage less than your cost above.

    Hopefully that's already clear in the new Tara Mines wagon pack prices
