  1. IRM 2018 Range; 'Project 42' and Plough

    Like you say, there is always a fly in the ointment but in my case it turned out to be an ELEPHANT! Read on (but for those of a nervous disposition I'd advise reading no further) "Well as you are not going to that train thing tonight, perhaps we could watch those "50 Shades" films ? Then afterwards maybe we could...." All I can say is these wagons better be GOOD and the discount even better.

    "I thought you were going to that train thing tonight" "I was, but I changed my mind" "But that's all you've talked about for the last few weeks" " I know, I know. I thought it would be nicer to spend Saturday night with you. Besides there was all that expense. You know the travelling, the food, some drink and the overnight stay. So I decided against it and decided on a nice Saturday night with you instead. So as I am staying in with you tonight, would you mind if I bought some wagons for the layout with the money instead?" (Nailed it, me thinks)

    "Good morning dear, light of my life, apple of my eye. You are looking exceptionally lovely today. By the way, what's the limit on the credit card?"
  4. Any of the CIE shunters . Anyone with a small layout could use them with the bubbles or shale wagons. I'd definitely be in for a couple.
  5. Joint venture with a UK company to produce UK wagon?
  6. Piko HO diesels

    Just ordered this for €86 which includes postage. https://www.modellbahnshop-lippe.com/produkt/PIKO/15-4-004001-184331-0-0-0-6-10-2-0-gatt-gb-p-0/ein_produkt.html
  7. Here are some very nice Piko HO scale locos. Some are really well priced. I'll be getting some of these myself. Here's one I fancy,https://www.modellbahnshop-lippe.com/produkt/PIKO/15-4-004001-256014-0-0-0-6-10-2-0-gatt-gb-p-0/ein_produkt.html. Just thought I'd post this incase someone fancies something different. https://www.modellbahnshop-lippe.com/gattungliste/0/15-4-004001-0-0-0-2-0-0-0-0-gatt-gb-p-0/gattungliste.html
  8. Irish firm selling locos

    Never knew this was an Irish registered company. http://www.railwaygazette.com/news/business/single-view/view/mrce-sells-diesel-locomotives.html
  9. Loco assembly line...

    Wonder if the Murphy Models assembly operation looks anything like this????
  10. Came across this. It is from Iran. http://www.andrewgrantham.co.uk/images/rail/iq-dem2410.jpg This is the only details I found on it. J26CW/AC EMD 16-645E engine 2200hp diesel-electric 1981. Only work on western lines, owing to weight. All are out of service (Feb 2004). .
  11. Group purchase?

    Thinking that €5 a member ought to do it..... http://www.sterlingrail.com/classifieds/classified.php?id=16401 Each contributor gets to keep it for a weekend.
  12. Nice idea....

  13. These are HO but I think they would look very well stacked in a terminal. Might even be o.k. to replace Hornby containers on the Railroad container wagon.http://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/wra/wra8104.htm.
  14. Locos for sale

    Some locos for sale here, not Hattons or Ebay. Sadly I don't have the space or the finances at the moment. http://www.sterlingrail.com/classifieds/Listings.php?type=Locomotive&fsw=FS
