    Waterslide Transfers Lifting

    Thanks Robert, I think my problem is that I was trying to seal them soon after!

    Waterslide Transfers Lifting

    Whats happening to my freshly applied Railtec transfers. I've just applied them to the sides of a 9 ton Van and as it dries the edges of the lettering is shrinking and lifting. How long after fixing transfers should I seal them? Edit: Found this excellent video!

    Class 141 1E 171 Murphy models

    Since one very kind member offered me the sale of a Black'n'Tan number 141 I have started reading, with interest, of the use of this loco on the Derry Road. From the book 'The Derry Road' by Des Fitzgerald it shows No. 159 at Carrickmore heading for Omagh dated 13th July 1964 stating it was the last year of operation of this service. Therefore No. 165 would most certainly not have been in Omagh. My good friend, the late Norman Johnston, who captioned the book notes that the locos were first introduced 13th Dec 1962 so it is more likely that No. 141 came this way.

    Noel, thanks for this. From memory your photos were quite impressive. Any advice on the purchase of a spray gun?

    What is the most effective and preferred method to paint rails to achieve a rust finish - hand painting or marker?

    To be honest Dave, your offer is welcome but I might hold off until the Cultra Show.

    Class 141 1E 171 Murphy models

    To be honest, I don't mind. I thought it was reasonably priced and would make a welcome addition to my layout.

    A neighbour had a photograph of a Class 141 IE 171 on a train taking pilgrims to Lough Derg. The photo showed the loco arriving in Omagh back in 1963. Tonight I managed to buy one of these boxed/new locos on eBay for £85. It will be nice to add it to my Derry Road layout which has been goods only up to now. So I guess thats my spending for this month done and maybe staying away from Enniskillen tomorrow will do no harm!

    All tips are welcome however have you looked at the locations of the drilled holes? On the edge of the fragile resin casting?
