  1. Bells and ballast.

    Something else to consider is that the ballast hoppers, (or indeed the dolomite hoppers, if that's what you still intend using the hoppers for), wouldn't have had any of the large stencilled numbers on the sides in that era. I wonder is this a dolomite hopper unloading in the early days of Ballinacourty, before the site work was completed, and health and safety was invented....

    Lovely job! Something to be proud of......

    Lovely job! Great attention to detail all throughout the build....
  4. IRM Cement Bubble Latest News

    Nice photo! Could the photo have actually been taken before the silver window frames were replaced with the IE coloured ones? I don't think the IE frames ever came out again after they were fitted.......but I could be wrong.....

    That's well worth doing! Looks much better. Have you test run them yet? How did they behave crossing points, and on tight curves?

    If you're doing two others in prototypical colours, by all means do something different or imaginary with the third! Who knows, maybe your livery will inspire the RPSI, when the time comes to paint 3185..... Life imitating art, and all that... Looking at the photos of you build so far, I'm sure they're going to look good!

    That's an incredible bit of work! Something to be proud of!
  8. Kingsbridge - Old New Layout

    I wonder how soon the repaint of 3185 will happen? My concern would be that if you went ahead and painted the model before the prototype was completed, you might end up with an inaccuracy. That mightn't be so bad if the prototype isn't going to be done for another couple of years, but it would be disheartening to have to alter the livery almost as soon as you had applied it......
  9. Kingsbridge - Old New Layout

    I hope to respray some of my MM tippex cravens (IE) the same livery over the winter to make up an RPSI rake. I have enough single stripe CIE cravens for the B&T era so happy to lose a few IE ones to RPSI livery. At the time the RPSI Cravens were released, the RPSI said they intended releasing another set later, with different running numbers, to enable modellers to run a full rake. This release was dependant on the first release being a success...which I think it's safe to say, it was... So, it might be worth holding off on the respray for a while, to see.....

    Yes, they're yours Seamus.

    I should have them here, if you don't get sorted elsewhere.....

    Interesting development! Best of luck with the new venture.....

    Brilliant! You more or less cracked it that time! I don't think I'd call it a distraction from proper modelling at all... It's more of a new aspect of modelling, that can be explored and exploited a lot more. It's a wonderful way to tour and view a layout!

    Some small alterations, and it would be a great video! I certainly thought the sound was good
