    Smart looking livery with the green on white I think

    Nice shot, Dave! I seem to remember someone stating the Tara logo was in yellow or gold but that definitely looks grey on white when new and pristine

    Tara mines rake in blue.

    ooooh, nice shot Warb.iS that part of a traverser for emptying the ore? Looks like that overhead lifts the roof off or secures to the wagon on the four top anchor points?

    Irish Railway Models 21mm Conversions

    I was wondering if anybody has already converted the IRM ballast to 21mm and how easy it was to remove the collar and fit new 21 mm wheel sets? Where were they sourced and what was the final running quality? I haven't done this on my own ballasts as I am waiting to see if CIE ones will turn up so the the IE ones remain untouched in their boxes

    Mk 2 Supertrain Coaches

    Nice job with the weathering but I feel like even the light weathering is overdone as most of these coaches were kept in pretty good condition as far as I recall ( always subject to user error , of course). However, he fact that I personally haven't actually done any physical weathering to any of my own stock probably diminishes the value of this opinion somewhat.....😕

    EM/OO Fine standards applied to Irish 5'3" gauge track.

    If only someone would build 21mm flexitrack and even one basic short prototypical crossover (which is very large by all accounts, let alone the express crossover) or a basic non-prototypical crossover (most Hornby, Peco Bachmann crossovers fit into this category), it would make entry into 21mm gauge so much easier, Fine for fiddle yards and small layout but not practical to build anything larger than this form scratch

    A closer look at our A Classes!

    Are there any better photos of that livery variant that has been described above?

    Irish Ambulance Trains

    If it’s just that you want to protect the the ‘copyright’ to the photos a little (c) McGartland or (c) GNRi pseudonym will go a long way as Ernie says. I’ve enjoyed your contributions to the forum for the area that is close to your heart so I wouldn’t be dissuaded from posting if there is a viable alternative. Irish modeling is a relatively small group as we’re constantly reminded and every time someone leaves we are the poorer for it.

    42ft Container Flats Pre-orders begin this weekend at Raheny!

    Not quite sure why you wouldn’t use the existing tooling to provide more 42 foot flat but that information is very much appreciated 👍
