    barrow street

    Without exception this has got to be the most magnificently detailed piece of model railway building ever seen in this country, dare I say anywhere! I for one have never witnessed craftsmanship like it anywhere, & I know the areas in & around Barrow Street where my late father was born & reared as the detail is off the scale. I have said cometh the moment, cometh the man, this has got to be an utterly magnificent build. ! Congratulations to you sir, you have set a boundary that I do not expect to see beaten let alone equalled in my lifetime. BTB

    Irish modelling site

    Hi Eoin, & many thanks, I should gave said what I've put in to my original opening comment about this site, I was just wondering if anyone had any info about it, & no I wouldn't be using that airbrush or any other one as I know my limits...!!!😀 BTB

    Luas Breakdown

    Well now, I said as I beleved of the way things go in this country, I said the morans " planners, " who are responsible for the issues relating to the LUAS & many other modes if transport go unchallenged as it's the way things are. Yes we need a proper working intergrated public transport system, with LUAS or its equalivent & no more cockups like what we've had over the past decade or so. I had not mentioned the fact that thanks to the " engineeres " we have 90 seater double deck buses puffing their way around the Capitol & the outer country narrow roads of the areas of it endeavouring to fulfill a public service yet they on so many occasions have no more than 7 / 8 passengers. I started this tread by highlighting yet another LUAS broke down been towed by another & escorted by a police car, not exactely indicative of a working transport system ! Well I guess I could give you some years, that said, I have no idea whatsoever as to what you mean by, trolling !! I say what I feel & believe in. BTB

    Luas Breakdown

    Dave my lad, this has nothing whatsoever to do with Wheelcairs, walking or not walking. Remember the brains that built the M50 & then decided, oh we should have had another lane..!!! so let's build one now, !! The same brains built the LUAS Red line & a Green, line, & then decided oh, we should have connected them..!! let's do that now !!! The bottom line is the LUAS should have been built underground, the Port Tunnell is an example of how things operate / work when the correct planning is put in place, ! & yes I've been in a LUAS, once !!! & no thank you, I won't be on any more. As I said, the brains of this country are to blame, but that kind of thing dos'nt happen here. Forward thinking, forget it !!! BTB

    Luas Breakdown

    I thought the thrust of this discussion was about the LUAS, or was it more to the point of the desaterious failures because the brains never properly mapped out the system & its desaterious effect on Dublin city & its thousands of car owners. Recent events prove just that ....but maybe it will work out as part of a transport system, but like I said, I'm not holding my breath....!!

    Luas Breakdown

    I started this by saying I never liked the LUAS & the more streets I as a Tax paying motorist is no longer allowed to drive on just confirms my utter dislike for them & I have to ask who ever the engineering genius! or dare I say geniuses !!! were that decided to rule out underground just confirms my thoughts of utter G.@.@.@.@.@.@.@s, they have effectely banned me & many others from driving into our Capitol city...rant over, BTB

    Ballyercall (New Irish Layout

    All my rolling stock is OO Gauge, if I was to opt for Peco Bulkhead track, ( which is equal oven to Peco Code 75, !!! or Peco Code 100...!!! I don't have a clue as to which is better ) would that mean having to change my rolling stock ,TIA BTB
