    How many plough vans did Iarnród Éireann have? I'm modelling 2000-present, presumably I'll want the IÉ pack? Unless there was some overlap in liveries for my time period - would anyone know?

    Thanks Railer, Anyone know times for the Taras during the week?
  8. Would anyone know any general times for freight movements on the network at the moment, particularly liners or timber? Is there much on a Saturday? Thanks!

    Hi Noel, I bought this airbrush a few years ago: https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Dual-Action-0-2mm-9cc-Needle-Airbrush-Spray-Gun-Air-Brush-For-Model-Paint-Tattoo/301976438859?hash=item464f32c84b:g:IkYAAOSwvg9XVOsg I think it is very good, dual action with a trigger limiter. I dismantle mine completely when cleaning and it is still working well. The paint flows well and it comes with a few needle sizes.

    I have thought about this, it would have to be cheaper than using wood and not bend or warp. It could be thinner than traditional methods but that is no good if you want to put point motors and wiring underneath. There probably aren't many benefits over traditional construction methods.

    The dapol pocket wagons do have several differences from the Irish ones. I'll be altering the ends using plasticard, moving the brake wheels and altering some molded details. Also on the bench:

    Great line up and good use of the 42' flat for several projects with more possibilities in the future. I was considering doing my own spoil wagons until 15 minutes ago! I can now 'plough' on with some of my other projects...
