  1. This video has me thinking about building something similar for exhibitions.
  2. LIMA Murphy Models

    Great oul thread Dave - my favourite, keep up the hard work.
  3. Halloween

    That looks like fun! Wish I lived nearer.
  4. Halloween

    That time of the year again. FREE pint* to whoever spots the ghost.
  5. Behind the scenes at IRM

    Exciting. I hope it's a loco!
  6. Lima a class 215 running rough

    Hi, Here is all you need to know about servicing a lima motor. Otherwise you can buy a remotoring kit. These in my experience have very mixed results. http://www.hakanpaa.net/susumotor_en.htm
  7. Loco Repair Needed

    Morning, Does anyone here do a repair service or would be interested in looking at a loco for me, a paying gig of course. I have a rivarossi 4-6-4 that needs attention. The motor is ok, but the pick ups in the tender are not always supplying power to the motor. I can't figure it out. Thanks.
  8. GM-EMD Locos

    Hi, Has anyone repainted any American GM-EMD locos into Irish colours over the years,I know some people have repainted switchers to look like a 121. I have and SD9 lying idle that I might paint in yankie grey with yellow snails just for fun. Would be a fairly easy job I reckon. Anyone?
  9. Removing Paint

    I'm sure this has been answered before so my apologies. I've sprayed something with yellow motor paint and have made a balls of it (an inspection car type thing). I have tried nail polish remover, white spirit and cillit bang but the paint seem to be made of Kryptonite and won't budge. Any suggestions? Cheers.
  10. Fifty Shades

    Nice pic from Dunsandle at the weekend. Anyone got a paint scraper handy?
  11. Narrow Gauge Livery

    Hi, Forgive if this has been covered before. Did any of the narrow gauge loco's that wound up being operated by CIE ever bare the snail? What was the colour scheme? I know some the coaches did. Cheers
  12. Storage Solution

    Cheap bit of moulding makes for a ready made storage shelf or elevated railway even?? Happy Days.
  13. Grand Hibernian on a Budget

    Old Lima 201 that has been hanging around like a bad smell for years. I bought it and it was hand weathered with brown enamel - I don't feel too bad about stripping and respraying. (Dave look away) Plan is to re-motor and give it the Belmond treatment. MK3's and decals are on the way also. Inspiration from this month's model rail.
  14. Anyone from this parish in this video http://www.rte.ie/archives/2016/1024/826447-model-railway-exhibition/
  15. Has anyone ever bought from alibaba.
