    IRM Bubbles Almost Sold Out. Would you like more?

    In that case, I'd like to commit voter fraud and belatedly vote for the slate grey again๐Ÿ˜

    IRM A Class; Our First Locomotive!

    Was there some issue that prompted the toughened windscreens? How did they differ physically from the originals?

    eBay Watch

    More likely it'll go back on at GBP100 instead of 1,100. Still a pretty stiff price at that!

    Tara mines rake in blue.

    Iโ€™m sorry for the late question on this thread @warb but do you happen to know what year this photo was taken?

    Cork - Cobh line

    Other than Cork Kent itself? Unfortunately PukeBucket has pulled some of his wonderful photos of his model (unless one cares to be extorted by them)

    OO Irish freight wagons, vans etc

    Always interested in tankers. Do you know time period when these were used, 80s? EDIT: Hold on, I just realized there's a whole parallel thread on here

    win for Accurascale

    Well, it's interesting that only a couple of votes separate Accurascale and longer standing manufacturers such as Rails of Sheffield

    IRM Bubbles Almost Sold Out. Would you like more?

    Haven't been on the site this week. Just found out about this. Rake of cement grey please! ... although I'm not surprised by the Irish cement logo voting. I have one pack of these just for nostalgia/display but that's where it'll end for me. It's nice to see that this is being considered so that the bubbles are not 'gone forever' That's a good point Noel. I have orange and CIE ivory ready for a mixed rake, but I hadn't though of that. I'm not sure I've seen a picture of a mixed rake of slate grey & newly introduced orange

    CIE Laminate Coaches - Worsley Works - ECMbuild in 4mm

    I'm not sure if it would be a viable small project or not (like a Rawie, I suppose) but it would probably be helpful if one could get complete common Irish bogies such as the commonwealth bogie to retrofit to existing/future rtr and scratch/kit built instead of trying to build these individually. BTW at the risk of echoing others comments, it's an exquisite build and I'v been watching this thread with interest. Some great information regarding battery boxes and vacuum cylinders and great prototypical and model photos

    SSM / 00 Works J15 Comparison

    Odd, that form is usually more prevalent here in the US. I havenโ€™t heard anything from them. Must drop an email

    IRM Cement Bubble Latest News

    A long rake or two will do very nicely indeed! .... which would mean Iโ€™d need a black, black & yellow and a rebuilt loco to haul them ๐Ÿ˜€

    IRM Cement Bubble Latest News

    If you consider that the orange bubbles only existed in that livery for less than a decade (barring a transition period) while the ivory livery endured for a further three decades, I'd say the orange bubbles have acquitted themselves well in terms of sales. 'Glad' they have sold out for you!

    Iโ€™ve some Mayner brass just arrived from Kiwiland too

    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?

    If anyone has pictures in blue livery I'd be interested in seeing that please Only ones I can think of off the top of my head and one from Ciaran Cooney Collection http://eiretrains.com/Photo_Gallery/Railway Stations N/Navan/IrishRailwayStations.html#Navan_20110321_003_CC_JA.jpg

    Irish Railway Models 21mm Conversions

    Great shots, really shows the difference on the comparison.

    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

    Yes, that's not right. I'm glad you;re getting a replacement. Hopefully no issues with that or we're all in trouble
