  2. What bogies used on Laminates + Bredin?

    Just to clarify re. the Commonwealth bogies, CIÉ used a 'lightweight' pattern for coaching stock which differed visually from the pattern used by BR. I understand @Weshty at Studio Scale Models is working on this bogie...

  13. Behind the scenes at IRM

    Another day, another survey! Richie and I are out and about to measure-up something which will be the first stage of a real game-changer for IRM. We’ll reveal more on this one closer to the release date of the model in question.

  15. Behind the scenes at IRM

    Well, we can now reveal that this survey mission was for something else entirely.

And don't worry, this won't affect production timelines for IRM products...
