    IRM 2018 Range; 'Project 42' and Plough

    The wait is finally over. March 3rd has arrived, and we can now reveal the most ambitious range ever announced by Irish Railway Models. It’s disappointing we could not do this at our planned IRM Social event, but we’re sure that our 2018 range will warm you up with excitement during this cold snap! We are releasing no less than six completely new models over the next 12 months, not including the Tara Mines wagon due in June! We have put the Taras on pre-order, and almost 20% have sold already. Remember, you get 10% off a rake (all five red oxide packs) if you use the discount code you got in the ballast packs bought from us directly. Click here to secure your pre-order. CIE Fertiliser Wagon Project 4 will be the distinctive CIE bogie fertiliser wagon, an iconic Irish wagon which could be found across the system for over 30 years. This will be the first wagon in our ‘Project 42’ series, which sees a number of wagon releases based around the humble 42ft flat wagon. A total of 90 were built by CIE to carry pallets of fertiliser from the IFI plant near Arklow, Co. Wicklow across the country. The IRM release will consist of multiple packs of two wagons in a variety of markings to allow the formation of a prototypical train. The Ferts are due late Q2 2018. CIE Ballast Plough Van Book-ending the ballast hopper wagons already made by IRM, the CIE ballast plough van will be project 5. Four of these vans were built by CIE in 1978 and were used to spread the ballast dropped from the hopper wagons. These will be highly exclusive, made in very limited numbers and will be released in packs of two vans in original CIE yellow livery and the later IE livery they wore before withdrawal in 2013. The vans will feature a full lighting package including interior lights and tail lamps with analogue switch and DCC operation. CAD is complete, and this will be in stock in Q3 2018. Guinness Train The ubiquitous CIE 42ft flat wagon, as used as the chassis on the fertiliser wagons, allows us to offer a variety of authentic freight train formations. Guinness trains, featuring keg cages and loads to replicate another iconic Irish freight flow, forms IRM project 6 and they are due in Q3. Modern Spoil Train We want to offer something else from the current scene to complement our Tara Mines wagon, so project 7 will see the modern spoil train complete with the spoil containers used on current permanent way traffic across the country. This is also due in Q3. Weedsprayer Pack Picture courtesy of The Wanderer Another current train (and a gricers favourite!) due in Q3 is Project 8, which will be the weedsprayer train with tanks and CIE container. The train will be a special triple pack made in a limited production run, featuring the wasp stripe headboards which can be affixed to your 141/181 or 071. The weedsprayer coach itself is under consideration as a future model, subject to demand. If you want it, let us know! Iconic Liners Finally, thanks to a collaboration with C-Rail Intermodal, the iconic Bell liners will be available for the first time in accurate RTR format, with 40 ft containers on IRM 42ft flats being released. These containers will use new tooling from C-Rail to give an alternative pattern to other Bell releases. These containers will have new identities not previously released by C-Rail. We are also looking into other containers that ran on the flats, such as B&I containers. The headboard will be a separately applied item that comes in a baggie. There will be packs of flats featuring the humble CIE 20ft container, which is being tooled as part of our weedspray train. The 20ft container will be released as a separate standalone item too to pose on the back of trucks and yards on your layouts. The liner packs form IRM project number 9 and they are due in Q4. Bare wagons may also be released later, allowing customers to add containers they already own The container, Guinness and spoil wagons will be released in packs of two with a variety of running numbers. Prices for all new releases will be confirmed in the coming weeks. Cheers, Fran (on behalf of the IRM Team - Patrick, Richie and Stephen)

    Behind the scenes at IRM

    Another day, another survey! Richie and I are out and about to measure-up something which will be the first stage of a real game-changer for IRM. We’ll reveal more on this one closer to the release date of the model in question.
  3. We're delighted to announce that we will open the order book for the Tara Mines wagons this weekend at our range launch! The first run of models will see five packs of two wagons in the current red oxide scheme, giving you an authentic ten wagon train. The wagons promise to have a level of detail yet to be seen in 4mm, including rotating axle caps, kinematic couplings and a wealth of separately applied detail. We will be able to take orders at the event on Saturday and online. Prices will be €79.95 per pack. Excited? We are!
  4. We all remember those dark days when we would use the contents of a well known chocolate egg as the body for homemade cement bubbles. Thankfully, those days are gone, and to celebrate we are doing a very special sale this weekend on all 5 packs of remaining bubbles, both online and at the Wexford Model Railway Club Easter Exhibition. 2 packs: €225 discount code: 2easter2018 (save €25!) 3 packs: €340 discount code: 3easter2018 (save €35!) 4 packs: €450 discount code: 4easter2018 (save €50!) 5 packs: €550 discount code: 5easter2018 (save €75!) You must include the correct discount code for the amount of packs you are buying. Simply put it in at the checkout to receive the discount. We will be selling bubbles at the Wexford show at this price and can accept cash and all major credit cards at the show. This can be made up of any permutations of bubble packs B, C, D, E and F you wish to do. This egg-cellent deal begins at 9am on Good Friday and finishes midinight Easter Monday. Don't miss out on this great bargain! www.irishrailwaymodels.com/shop

    IRM Tara Wagon Discount Codes Explained

    TARA DISCOUNT CODES EXPLAINED We have had a number of questions regarding our Tara discounts. Here is a quick explanation on how they work! Firstly, if you bought ballast hoppers direct from us, the slip of paper below came with a long 13 digit code either glued to the slip, or wrapped around it on another piece of paper. To avail of this discount, add each pack to your cart individually and then add it in when prompted at the check out on our site to get 10% off. It will NOT work if you add the bundle to the cart. Although it states on the slip that the discount on a rake is 4 packs, it will work for all 5! If you did not buy the ballasts direct from us, then select the 'bundle' option when buying online and this will give you a 5% discount on all five packs. Finally, if you are having any trouble with the code or any other part of the purchasing process, or have any questions on how it all works, please email us directly on info@irishrailwaymodels.com and we will sort it out for you. It works seamlessly for 99% of people, but we all have the odd tech issue can always creep in! We've hit the 20% mark in Taras sold already in less than three days, which is incredible. Thank you to everyone who has ordered so far! Our order book is open, don't miss out! https://irishrailwaymodels.com/product-category/freight-stock/tara-mines/

    Model Rail Model of the Year 2017

    Hi everyone, Do you think our ballast wagons were the best wagons Model Rail magazine reviewed in 2017? Were we your model manufacturer of the year? If so, please vote for us in the 2017 Model Rail awards! https://www.model-rail.co.uk/moty2017/ We'd really appreciate any votes we get! (the bubbles were not reviewed until the Jan 2018 issue so they will be in next years awards!) Thanks, Fran

  8. Don't get me wrong guys, fantastic models. I ended up pre ordering 12 packs in total and now have few packs surplus to requirements. Reason for sale is to help fund a few orange bubbles. Selling 1x A, 1x B and 1x C pack. Selling for €90 each or all 3 packs together for €250. All 3 packs sold pending payment.
