    I model Irish Railways CIE & GNRI From 1960's to 1990's.Some are kits & others are bought and kitbashed. some are made from scratch. All rolling stock is wheathered which i think makes all the difference & realistic.I love to see other peoples work & i know how many hours it takes, but it's worth it.

    A very nice model and it was a quick build, well done.

    That's a lot of buses. And the garage looks great.

  7. Here are two pictures of Saintfield station in co Down showing it then and now. Thanks to ernie's irish archive and to the station owner for letting me take some pictures last summer.

    That looks really good and i don't see anything wrong with the soldering. Try to add as much weight to it as possible or it won't pull much.
  9. Meenglas moved to Whitehead.

    It's good to see that the museum will remain there and be open to the public. I will try and get up there next year when it opens.
  10. Meenglas moved to Whitehead.

    CDR Meenglas No4 has been moved from Foyle valley railway to RPSI Whitehead. Hopefully someday restored.
  11. G class diesel livery

    G601-613 were silver/grey and green. G611-617 were green, black with white stripe and black with orange and white stripe.

    Thanks. This was a big job and i would not do one again. The cab frame is 2mm plastic rod but i think 1.5mm would have been better. It made glazing more difficult. The louvres were made with a laser cutter, which turned out ok.

    Thanks, there is a lot of work involved on small details glazing was tricky. It was a slow job. Here is a small drawing, it's the only one i have but it might help.
  14. IRM Cement Bubble Latest News

    That does look much better.
  15. Popeye's Workbench

    Thanks very much, glad you like it. The hydraulic lines were done with plastic bristles from a brush.
