  1. I've recently been experiementing with some British N gauge. I was wondering if anyone isstill modelling Irish railways in N gauge? Is it a sane thing to do? I'm considering switching because of space restrictions.
  2. Having a bit of a clear out, some of this is from a job lot I brought some of which I didn't want. Will add more later. Though I would offer here before putting on adverts or eBay. May add some Irish stuff later too.

  3. Swap Records

    Just for the record as the original thread has disappeared I agreed to swap my 181 with StevieB for his 192. I've posted it to him today. Not happy that the original thread has gone missing - swapping requires trust.

  5. As I don't have much cash at the moment due to unemployment I thought I'd start a thread for austerity modelling tips . I noticed that the 2 euro shops are selling really long drinking straws at the moment. They may be useful for modelling street lamps, bollards and pipes.
  6. Hi, I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in starting a model railway club in Galway city? There doesn't appear to be one.
