    First Look at the IRM Tara!

    Not sure of the exact circumstances as to how it came about but it was short lived. At the time I think they felt it was cheaper to ship it from Arklow rather the Dublin Port. The wagons basically looked like a 20 ft open top container which was covered with a tarpaulin.

    Are you referring to the 4 wheel ore wagons that ran to Arklow in the early 90's Dive?

    IRM Fert Wagon

    Mouthwatering detail. Was it generally 10 in a typical rake? Any footage I've seen from the early to mid 90s suggests so.

    Love the stairwell and lift encased in glass. Looks just like the real thing. Modelling on another level.

    071 fleet overhaul updates.

    It certainly was an added bonus to get both locos on the tour back in April Railer. I too was delighted to get a few shots of both looking a little worse for wear, especially 086 sporting it's black and orange cab door and 074 with its IE logo missing, but as you said both sounding great.

    The buses of Tara Jctn.

    I thought your fleet of locos was impressive Noel ! You must have twice the amount of buses if not more

    Oh lads, they are just the dogs dangly bits. That bar seems to get pushed that little bit higher with each release.

    Greystones Model Railway Layout.

    They turned out great Eoin. As you said tedious work, but certainly worth the effort when you see them finished.

    Hi all,Ive finally got back around to starting a few bits and pieces so i thought it wouldnt do any harm to post a few bits along the way.I did post an NIR ballst wagon which i had re sprayed some time last year which i got positive feedback on so i will also be finishing them off at some stage.Here is some IE auto-ballasters that ive been working on.Ive added a ballast load and gave them a bit of a weathering and tail lamps added which are from SSM.I have done four with two more to be finished which will make a nice rake of six with two generators at both ends.

    When I first built these cement wagons about 3 years ago I made one of the worst mistakes you probably can when modelling and rushed them, resulting in a lot of wobbling and sometimes derailing when running. Obviously the badly built chassis' were behind the running issues so about two months back I decided to start on a new batch and sort the problem once and for all. While I was working away on the building the new chassis' I took the chance to tidy up parts of the weathering and paintwork on the bodies which was another thing I hadn't been happy with, and I've also added some extra detail to both ends of each wagon by using plasticard and SSM break wheels and wire. None of this is by any means 100% accurate but I think it represents the framework and hand wheels from the prototype quite well and certainly adds to the appearance of the model. The chassis' still need some weathering applied to blend top with bottom but that's a job for another day, main thing is their now running smoothly.

    Now that you mention it JB, they do look slightly the wrong shade Lovely work Noel. Very precise lining as always.

    You were right to change the gangways Noel. Alot more detail on the new set.
  24. Oh that's very impressive.It takes the sting out of the orange, not too much but just nicely.

    I was reading over this thread again today Noel and out of curiosity tried a 20 in one of my Bubbles. Not that i was doubting you, but because I have a lump of them spare.Your spot on with the 18s as the 20 is basically the same length as the tension lock when plugged into the NEM. So as you've suggested above I'm going to glue the 20s to the underside of my Ballasts to use them up and invest in some 18s for my Bubbles.
