  • Biography
    I returned railway modelling in 2002 joining the Wexford MRC. I developed a collection of Irish outline models and worked to improve these. I eventually developed Ballybeg and Irish outline home/exhibition layout in OO. This has been exhibited at 9 exhibitions winning Best Scenic and Best in Show prizes. My most recent layout is Llangollen in N gauge a UK outline "restored" railway based on the prototype in NE Wales

  1. Hi Gerry,

    I'm thinking seriously about N-gauge now that I have my shed organised.

    Are there any Irish RTR models available at all?

      No rtr Irish that I am aware of but Shapeways do produce the bodies for 141/181/A/C/071/201 locomotives. These would need to be prepared, painted, decals added and fitted with an appropriate Graham Farish motorised chassis. Studio Scale Models do the 2mm CIE transfers. Many UK outline wagons could be repainted and passenger carriages (MK2/3) from GF fitted with vinyl sides to give a variety of Irish liveries. Building kits from Alphagraphix could colour photocopied at 50% reduction and cut out to give Irish buildings. In 2 mm not every detail needs to be perfect but the overall result would be well worth the effort!
