  1. Thanks @jhb171achill you are the 'oracle' and fountain of most interesting knowledge. Fascinating, and thanks for posting.

    Mk 2 Supertrain Coaches

    Lightly weathered a MM mk2 ST coach for a friend. The prototype Supertrain livery never really floated my boat, but after a bit of weathering I'm beginning to change my mind. These after all are closer in time to my favourite B&T era than the later more attractive tippex livery, and overlapped operations with B&T livery stock for much of the 1970s. Used a mix of airbrushing and weathering powders applied wet using paint brush and cotton buds (water+decalfix). The roof now looks less like an air marshals day-glo bat.

    LIMA Murphy Models

    Looks just a mix up in body centres from two locos, an IE and IR. Could easily happen when fitting decoders and the IR and IE bodies got mixed up between two locos when being put back on.

    IRM A Class; Our First Locomotive!

    Excellent photo. Black'n'Tan delight. Might I helpfully suggest that pic is put on IRM's A23r shop page instead of the existing A42r photo to avoid customer confusion about the loco number and livery variant. https://irishrailwaymodels.com/collections/a-class-locomotive/products/a23r-a-class-locomotive

    This transcends railway modelling. You should be making model sets for movies like James Bond or the next Star Wars. Superlatives are inadequate. Respect!

    Tara Junction.

    Your new 107 looks really well. One of the nicest finished Sulzers I've seen and a great paint job. Stock always looks great on your fabulous layout.

    A closer look at our A Classes!

    Thanks Patrick. It was just the new photos on the IRM web site that caused a degree of confusion. So two high band B&Ts and one low band B&T.

    Thanks Patrick. And will A15 be high or low band?
