    IRM Fert Wagon

    I would be okay waiting until Q1 '19, between the Tara Mines and other UK stuff coming out, I'm pretty well knee deep in 00 gauge debt.

    I paid, set the precedent last week when I picked up those two DRS 37's and went for a steak meal and bottle of wine.

    Picked my six coaches up this morning, sent by Marks Mpdels. we are out having breakfast together, bit of a get to know you session. Marl
  6. May as well add to this post without starting a new one, I have a couple of queries some one may be able to help with. The large island platform that is just visible and has the water tank at the end, does anyone know when this platform was taken away? I am thinking it was sometime in the '70s, I cant remember it being there in the 80's. There are plenty of still photos of Barracks street but I have heard of a video on YouTube showing a cab view of some shunting going on. Tried every search combination but cannot find it, can anyone point me to a link for this video? Thanks in advance, Mark

    Double height Beet Wagon kit is now available

    That's what I was thinking also, I'm not a kit builder and would never be happy with my work, so I'll leave it in the hands of the RTR chaps.

    Hi Noel, Its the branding of this kit item as a Murphy Models product that I am questioning, why didnt the seller list as a kit built class 121?

    The much anticipated Murphys Models Class 121 has finally arrived, 🙄 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Murphy-Models-121-Loco/263751276389?hash=item3d68cd1765:g:CxQAAOSw0GNbHk4w
  11. I don't do the weathering myself as I could never get anywhere as good as these photos. This is the latest batch of stock I sent away to get weathered and as usual the gent that does this work done a fantastic job. Mark

    Murphy Model Craven Buffet Coach

    no too sure if this is old news but Kernow's announced this morning via facbook "Murphy Models announce a further production of the Craven Buffet Coach, due late October / early November" There site has been update to start accepting pre-orders. Mark
  13. Hi Noel, I went with Wheeltappers 071 with power drive, very happy with it. I had listened to most that had samples available, there was one I wanted to try out, Mr Soundguy but his Irish diesels are not on his site at the moment. Think I'll get sound into one my 181's next and put my new spare speaker to good use. Mark
  14. Success, Thanks Noel, done as you said, working just fine. Mark
  15. Gents, I have an 071 that came with a speaker already installed and I have received a DCC sound decoder to add to the loco. The decoder has come with a speaker wired, a quick check and when I start it up the speaker wired to the decoder is the one working. Before I cut any wires (as Im terrible at this sort of thing) am I ok to disconnect the speaker that came with the decoder and the installed speaker on the 071 will then work? Thanks in advance, Mark
