  • Biography
    I returned railway modelling in 2002 by joining the Wexford MRC. I made a collection of Irish rolling stock eventually developed Ballybeg an Irish outline home/exhibition layout in OO. This has been exhibited at 10 exhibitions winning Best Scenic and Best in Show prizes in Wexford. I developed Llangollen in N gauge a UK outline "restored" railway based on the prototype in NE Wales which has been shown 8 times (including at Bala, N Wales) winning a Best Scenic Award in Wexford. Shunters Yard is a OO GWR compact layout and has been shown three times. Cynwyd in N is based on another Llangollen line prototype station. It has been shown twice winning prizes Best N Gauge in Wexford and Best Layout Scenery at SDMRC. My latest layout is Llanuwchllyn in N (another Llangollen line prototype station) is due its exhibition debut at Bala in May 2018.

  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!
