    I am converting some flat top autoballasters to round top in preparation for painted into IÉ yellow. Some filing and filling and they should make it past the two foot rule.

    Yep it's the large green building as shown in the above photo - accessed off Knocklyon Road. When you turn off Knockylon Road there is a narrow lane with a height restriction barrier across it - head down the lane and the club house is at the end.

    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?
  11. 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.

    Metal Baseboard Frames

    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.
