  5. Hello all, Now that I'm commuting to Coleraine nearly everyday, you very easily spot movements on the network, such as the Sandite, new PW thing movin about and even some new wagons, which is what this thread is about. On Tuesday I noticed a flat bed bogie wagon off the traverser at York Road. It is nearly identical to those stored in Ballymena but they look brand new, with glossy black paint and the springs/axle boxes picked out in blue and yellow. What I want to know is what are they used for? Whilst passing Antrim today, there were 4 yellow boxes on top filled with ballast. The capacity looked very low compared to the ballast wagons currently at Blfast Central. I remember reading on this forum that the construction of them isn't as good as others, so it makes me wonder why new ones are being obtained, that is if they are new of course. I'd be interested to read if anyone has any knowledge or understanding about these wagons. Nelson
  6. The work that they have done is amazing, it looks brilliant. http://www.simonbrien.com/new-homes/cultra-station-bt18-0au-763
  7. Making your own iPhone

    Hello all, This may be a bit random but I found it extremely interesting and thought I would share it with you all. I know very little about electronics however I found the process to be incredible. The video also gave me some astonisghing insight into how easy it is to make your own phone if you know where to look. Nelson

  9. Books about early NIR

    Hello all, I'm just wondering if anyone can recommend any books which specially cover the early NIR years, just after the UTA or a book with a bit of both? The reason I ask is because I obtained the DVD "Steam in Northern Ireland, the final years", its very good and has lots of interesting scenes, so I just want to expand upon it. Thanks, Nelson

  15. GNRI Transfers

    Hello everyone, I need some GNR transfers for my engine, mainly the letters "GNR" and the number "10". I've checked with studio scale models and they don't have what I need and I'm unsure about the new railtec transfers, so if anyone knows any other company that sells GNR transfers be sure to let me know, or if anyone has any experience with the railtec ones, I'll be interested in hearing from your experiences of them, Thanks Nelson Ps: I'm going to check all the mainland GNR transfers and see if anything suits but I highly doubt it.
