  1. GNR MAK loco

    Roco or the Kato/Hobbytrain are ideal. Both need a little cosmetic surgery to resemble the Irish one. The HO difference is not a big one, given the size of the prototype and the Irish loading gauge etc
  2. 42ft Container flat - 3D FUD

    If Arran at C-Rail can be provided with livery diagrams/photos and colour codes he would be happy to produce them
  3. Where did you hear about the proposed A Class model? It seems to have passed me and everyone else on this forum by
  4. UK Model Railway Exhibitions

    Dont forget at most of the UK shows there are businesses making baseboards etc. The size of the market in the UK allows this. Your in the sea now with the sharks. Offer something that they dont have and be able to sell it to them
  5. Kingsbridge - paint shop

    I seem to have missed this announcement??
  6. Branchline Wanderer

    Best to write them a letter of complaint, or use their 'inter-net' cyberspace position - AOL Keyword: RPSISTEAMTRAINSINIRELAND
  7. 21mm gauge track; the pros and cons?

    Well at least I said it in one sentence instead of justifying it over 7 Rich. Then again Im no know it all and never claim to be
  8. 21mm gauge track; the pros and cons?

    Perfectly summarised, its interest and population more than anything else. The MRSI's Loughrea 21mm layout is stored idle given the lack of interest in it. Most members are happy to run their Irish stock on 16.5mm track. Not everyone feels to the need to run to an authentic gauge and this needs to be remembered too. Code 75/82 track and correct sleeper spacing makes a big difference to set-track also
  9. Silverfox - New Irish Coach releases

    As soon as the bar is raised, it gets dropped just as fast. Proves there is still a market for this
  10. Will deposits be taken??
  11. That Reg Thing.......

    Not anymore, GM sold their European Division to PSA who comprise of Citroen and Peugeot. Also GM Electro-Motive Division is now owned by Progress Rail, whose parent company is Caterpillar
  12. Baseboard sizes

    If you build them properly and braced etc to avoid sagging either size is good Regarding height, I'm a great believer in having them at 'eye level', but being 6'4 its not something I often get to experience. The closer to eye level the better as you don't look at real trains from a helicopter or cherry picker....
  13. Class 121

    Expected in 2018. From Mr Paddy Murphy himself.
  14. Cement by Rail

    No, just the 12 of those, currently at Limerick
