  1. How did this turn out, over 2 years since original post. Would be interested in seeing the finished article. Nice to see the local station being the subject of a layout
  2. Wexford Model Railway Club Exhibition Easter 2018

    Hoping to get down for a look round on Easter Monday
  3. Watching this with great interest to see how the local train station works out with a British twist to it There's a few old and not so old photos on the "Old Carlow Photos" Facebook page that might be of help to you

    Was looking into this again over Christmas and noticed they now have a way of purchasing tickets online via a ticket sales website, adds €3 or €4 to the price per ticket but kids tickets not available this way, they need to be purchased via post
  5. This might be of interest to people, it's a 5 part series starting on Channel 4 on January 7th @ 8pm. A group of people build a model railway across Scotland in the hope of setting a World Record Facebook link : https://www.facebook.com/The-Biggest-Little-Railway-in-the-World-119576451912100

    Details : https://www.steamtrainsireland.com/whats-on/25/branchline-wanderer Anyone from on here planning on going on this next year, Dublin to Waterford, Limerick and back to Dublin? Are these trips geared towards the nerdy train spotters or is it suitable for anyone?
  7. Another free baseboard!

    Oh I have liked n shared it and fingers are crossed🤞.....makes doing any work a lil bit awkward😂😂
  8. Another free baseboard!

    That would be a great help in starting on the layout with the other half, she has been collecting up bits over the last number of years but never did anything to get a layout sorted....things have changed since we met earlier this year and plans are afoot to get something put together in the new year. Just a query on that 6x4 baseboard could the catch on one side be done differently in order to facilitate a second 6x4 baseboard being added at a later date to create a 6x8 setup???
  9. Bray Train & Model Fair

    Great might get a chance to take a wander up to this one all going to plan
  10. Bray Train & Model Fair

    Is there a show in Bray this Sunday???
  11. Baseboard sizes

    Itching to get started on building up baseboards for the other halfs layout but was wondering what sizes to do them. We're planning an 8ft x 6ft layout so would 4 4x3 boards or 2 6x4 boards be advisable?? The layout won't be getting moved once setup and will be in the middle of a room so plenty of space to walk around it. Also what is the preferred height for layouts?? There will be kids allowed in to look at it operating but under supervision
  12. A few photos from day 3 of the exhibition in Blackrock College. A great show with lots to see and lots of people still happy to talk about displays after probably answering the same questions for the previous 2 days. That's just a handful, plenty more on https://public.fotki.com/speedy/model-rail-shows/sdmrc/
  13. I hope anyone that has been yesterday or is going today leave a few bargains for those of us going tomorrow How many displays are there?? And more importantly, how many traders?? Will have camera with me so hope to get plenty of photos
  14. 2nd page in threads

    I see there was work being done on the forum but as of this morning when browsing on the phone I can't access 2nd or subsequent pages on any threads, the following error appears. "Warning: Illegal string offset 'name' in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 6845 Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at [path]/includes/class_core.php:5698) in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 4370" I'm viewing on Opera mobile and looking at the mobile version of the forum
