  1. Hi All, I am a novice to modelling anything, I have a large stash of 00 gauge bits. However I have always had an interest in narrow gauge railways particularly the Tralee and Dingle. I also volunteer on the Stradbally Woodland and Cavan & Leitrim Railways, along with being a co-ordinator for the Avonside "Nancy" Restoration Project. I recently purchased a minitrains boehler 0-4-0WT and sent it away to be customised by James Hilton (available on Google) into one of the Andrew Barclay 0-4-0WT locos, the results are astonishing! I'm tempted to go and form a small BNM outline layout with a few turf wagons. Any suggestions would be welcome. I have just sent away two partially built Chivers Tralee and Dingle Hunlset loco's to be modified and detailed for me, will update you when they return.

    THREE New Books covering Irish Railways

    Folks I'll have no less that three new books for sale on the IRRS Stand at Warley at the weekend - profits to support Irish railway preservation. Irish Railway Memories - a Decade of Change 1984 - 1994: an album of photographs by Paul Haywood - until I looked through this, I hadn't really realised just how dirty diesels could get - ammo for the weathering men? £10.95 Railways in Ireland Part One: is a new edition of Martin Barstow's first of five volumes on Irish railways. This one covers the GNR, SLNCR, and the five narrow gauge lines in their hinterland. Many new photographs have been added - I haven't done a page by page comparison, but can assure you that it's beautifully reproduced with fine sharp b;ack and white illustrations. For an Englishman writing about Irish Railways, Martin does a commendable job and found interesting photographs by fellow countrymen who put their camera to good use in the Emerald Isle. £17.95 Finally, for the people with a narrower view of life: Narrow Gauge Album1950-1965 In Colour by Michael Whitehouse, son of a famous father PB ("Pat") Whitehouse of Railway Roundabout fame. "From the wilds of the west of Ireland, through the mountains of North Wales to the rolling countryside of the east of England ironstone fields, the narrow gauge railway provided an invaluable service for around a hundred years." I have yet to see the book, which just arrived in Lightmoor Press's warehouse yesterday, but I'll be picking up a supply on Saturday. Black Dwarf Lightmoor are the top railway publisher these days, in my not humble opinion - their books cover their topics thoroughly and the reproduction of images would take some beating. No one line captions for them - the norm is a meaty description of the scene, doing credit to the scene depicted. £25.00, but mention my nickname on this site and i'll give you a couple of quid off. Come to Stand C65 at Warley and have a look! Leslie(10646)

    Modelling the Bord na Mona

    Gday all, Live in Australia and fell in love with the bord na mona peat bog railways on a visit to my girlfriends home in Waterford last year. I have started modelling a layout 9 foot by 3 foot in On16 and need some help in getting a sense of scale for the models. If anyone has any plans or the ability to do simple measurements it would really be appreciated, specifically the wagons and locos such as the simplex and railmotors. I will keep all updated with the building process and thank all for the inspiration I have gained of your threads. Glad to be able to share with like minded people and will pick your brains for tips and tricks as I go if thats ok. Phil
