    Definitely iffy cab fit,tender springs look odd as they don't have any spring hangers.Andy.

    Etched parts for MGWR Horsebox & Fish/Meat van.

    Splendid pair of kits if look on the last picture of Courtmacsherry at Warley you will see the horse box in the middle of the rake.Don't ask me to explain what its doing there but give some time and i can come up with an unconvincing explanation,Andy.

    Thanks for the photos Leslie,as can seen Courtmacsherry is far from finished,but in my defence i only built the boards last Christmas,and this was only the second time the layout was fully erected.Hopefully by her next show(southampton the end of January).It should be well on its way.The main thing is the row of buildings,a lot of chimneys and slates,still something to potter on with over Christmas.Andy.

    All in the fullness of time Leslie,all in the fullness of time,Andy.
  5. Easy enough to make your own axles.Minidrill, grinding block and a bit of 2mm rod cut to length takes under a minute.Andy

    Two up and running, with Valencia what else ?,third one to build as a superheated one to complete the set.Andy.

    I might bring the station building along to Warley Andy

    Err sort of done about half of it (the Donegal half)but wasn't happy with the trackwork (Peco) it ran alright but the points are a bit sharp for the Donegal stock so currently dismantled waiting its place in the layout queue,roll on early retirement next year Andy.

    Glad you you enjoyed Castlederg,it would be nice to bring another across as always enjoy it,after all theres another 3 here at the moment,with work starting on Lough Eske in the new year that won't take long as theres already more than enough stock for it(Donegal layout No5) Andy

    Thanks,it wasn't unexpected in fact a bit of a relief as if one of my dogs was in the state Mum was in the last week,i'd have been straight round the vets.Andy.

    Corutmacsherry won't be quite finished as my Mum died last month which has obviously put a spanner in the works.Still its mainly the row of buildings along the road which seems to go on forever,anyway come and have chat.Andy.

    Cultra Model Railway Exhibition

    Just got back from the Show (only 440 miles plus sea crossing each way)Throughly enjoyed the Castlederg behaved itself despite said trip in back of the Landie especially the drive down from Larne when the rain was so bad i expected the ferry to pass us.Never been to the Museum before but agree that its all jammed in there a bit,still at least its there.No to get on with Courtmacsherry for Warley.Andy

    CIE Locomotive Grey specification

    Looks like Humbrol 27 to me,all my GSR locos use it with degrees of weathering.Andy.

    Clogher Valley Project

    Defiantly echo Davids comments on the Uckfield Show,i've had Valencia and Castlederg there and throughly enjoyed it.There again this year with Llanfair Caereinion.Andy.

    Dundalk, Newry & Greenore Railway

    Worsley do the 6wheelers ,off the top of my head i believe that the panelling is slightly different to the LNW ones,Andy.

    Dundalk, Newry & Greenore Railway

    Exactly like that,Andy.

    Dundalk, Newry & Greenore Railway

    Its worth bearing in mind that the Greenore engines were in reality saddle tank versions of the LNWR "DX"goods with 5'2" wheels rather than the Special tank 4'6" wheels.London Road do a Special tank kit which far better than the old GEM kit and can also supply the proper size splashers from their DX kit,an almost finished one has been spotted at Courtmacsherry recently.Andy.

    NCC Harland & Wolff kit

    Just noticec on RM Web that the next Judith Edge kit is for the LMS NCC Harland && Wolff 060 and very good it looks too,Can't justify one but will get one anyway to keep the Jinty and W company.Andy.

    Irish Railway Models 21mm Conversions

    Irish Railway Models 21mm Conversions

    One small point some of us model 21mm gauge using EM standards,in fact 100% of 21mm gauge layouts on the exhibition circuit are so constructed.Its very simple to make pinpoint axles using just 2mm rod a mini drill and an emery grit block.Stick rod in drill grind point on one end he actual angle isn't greatly important then cut to length and do other end,simples!.About half the stock on Coyrtmacsherry are running on them quite happily.Andy.

    GNRi Brake Van

    A good supplier of drills in all shapes and sizes are Chronos.Its a good idea to have a set of broaches for easing out holes much less stressfull and more control in getting to a finished size.Andy.

    21mm Gauge rtr track

    No nothing out there but to be honest once you get into the swing of it,building track isn't to bad,Courtmacsherrys was done over a weekend.ANdy
