    Wanted Mk2 coaches/NCC

    Hi MadBenNI, There are really only two options, pick up a set from Chris Dyer at the Stillorgan Hotel sales or buy a set of Airfix Mk2's and do a respray. Neither are ideal or match the prototype but are a good approximation. Hope this helps, NewtonCork

    Abandoned Eurostar

    It was also interesting that mk3 generator vans were developed for the Nightstar (think they were from mk3 sleeper coaches). They also saw little or no use. Even though they looked completely different externally to Irish mk3 gen vans , I wonder if they were similar mechanically?

    NIR gen vans

    Hi Robert, I would be interested. I know that John Hazleton at Silverfox was thinking of doing a model of 8911. Might be worth dropping him a line to see if he has made any progress. I know that he didn't get around to it in 2017 , but if there is more interest, maybe he will do a run. Newtoncork

    enniscorthymans workbench

    Hi Eamonn, Great to talk to you in Cork. Fabulous layout and certainly attracted a lot of attention at Fort Camden. Mind you, the kids seemed to be mesmerized by the blue flashing lights!

    Paint Your Wagon

    Hi Tony, I always find Vinny Byrne to be very good and if you buy two aerosol cans, postage is free. They also supply any RAL colour you would like. Only thing is it is an expensive way of doing it. Oh and Halfords grey or white primer is great too! I went down this road but have now just invested in a Iwata airbrush. It's cheaper in the long run.

    Shapeways 3D models - anybody else used them?

    Would 3D printing be suitable for a mk4 DVT?

    Portadown Model Shop?

    Tony, I used to live in Armagh City and the only model shop in Portadown is Rennicks in the town centre. They used to do Irish Railways but now only do radio controlled cars. Might still be worth a look. Good place for a coffee is The Yellow Door. Hope this helps.
