    Mothballed 201s Thread

    Really interesting photos there Railer and great info to go with them. I know they're not everyone's cup of tea but I've always had a soft spot for the 201's. Reliability issues never helped over the years I know, but it's such a pity they never got close to the success of their predecessors.

  3. Lovely shots Noel. I'd gladly sit there with a pint of the black stuff looking out at that.

    I'll probably hold on to 3 or 4 with the logo Popeye. I have seen photos where the later IRISH CEMENT logo can be partially seen. To be honest I don't think I could bring myself to deface them all

    Another little project I've being itching to get started on is adding some much needed weathering to my IRM Cement Bubbles. I was a little reluctant at first about attempting this but a Bubble just doesn't look right if its not manky so they've made it to the bench to be dirtied up. I'm beginning by removing the logos. I know this might seem a little drastic, but it was rare they were seen on the real thing in their later years and by doing this it cuts out any chance of them showing through the weathering when its eventually applied. I've just finished the first two from 18, only 16 to go

    IRM Plough Preordering Now Open!

    Can't wait to get my hands on a pack of these stunners. And without straying from topic, can I just say the Ballast wagon looks fantastic when weathered.

    Have to agree Railer it was a fantastic day out, made all the better by the 3 locos on duty that day. Really looking forward to this one myself

    On to the Ammonias. I decided to start with the tank itself and I'm glad I did. This turned out to be a little trickier than I expected, basically its a flat sheet of brass that needs to be rolled into a cylindrical shape to form the tank by using both resin ends as a guide. There were plenty of expletives used when doing this but I got there in the end Plenty of work still to be done on the chassis

    Class 141 1E 171 Murphy models

    Hi Tony. 171 carries the IE orange livery from the mid 90s onwards. Just a heads up incase you're expecting the model to carry the livery shown on the photo on the box.

    Damn you Sails. I was hoping to put people off and buy it myself for the same reason

    Glengarriff + my former Irish models/layouts

    Fantastic work all-round. Has that rough look to it, and that's meant as a compliment. The area looks used and slightly neglected which gives it that more of a realistic appearance. Enjoying watching this progress.

    Tara Junction.

    Lovely pics as always from Tara Junction Noel. Sounds like my type of day out, wined and dined on the Mk3's being hauled by 080

    Thanks as always for the comments John-r, much appreciated. Cheers Noel. Plan is to have them heavily weathered when finished. They were generally manky when in service, so hoping to achieve that look when done.

    Managed to grab an hour or two over the last couple of evenings to continue on with the barriers. Painting of the flats is now finished and I've also made a start on weathering the tanks. Getting there slowly but surely

    Very nice Robert. Really like the one carrying the current logo, you'll always find one or two of those mixed in a rake so always nice to have.

    Murphy Model spares

    Same here, handrails would be handy to have, and definitely spare horns. They either end up bent or just disappear altogether.

    Track looks great, love the groundwork around the siding also.
