    Foolish drivers

    Unfortunately seeing something like this doesn't surprise nowadays. Some of the driving I witness on a daily basis along with their attitude to the rules of the road is beyond belief. Luckily these type of planks are in the minority.

    Last pic does it for me. Top notch as always.

    IRM Plough Preordering Now Open!

    Going by the releases to date these will be well worth the wait. Yet again this just goes to show that IRM won't just throw anything out there unless it's of the highest quality. Really looking forward to adding these to my ballast wagons.

    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.

    Cheers Robert. Yes the powders seem to work well when trying to achieve that caked on lumpy appearance. All going to plan it will still be visible after airbrushing etc is eventually finished.

    The logos have now been removed on all but 4 of the bubbles, so I've moved on to adding some cement spillage to the top of the tanks. This was made up from a mixture of Humbrol weathering powders and Matt Cote. When the mix had dried I began removing it until I got a look I was happy with. It was then fixed in place with matt varnish.

    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.

  10. 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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
