1. Donelli Cranes Hi Guys, Time to bite the bullet! I've recently had the time to get back in to Model Railways again, and as you are all so kind and willing to share your work here on the forum, it's only fair that I share some stuff aswell. I've been working on a couple of small projects but this one jumped the queue as it's been topical here on the forum. Thanks to Wexfordloco10 for sharing his images and answering Heirflicks original question about the Donelli Cranes. I've had a go at representing wagon #770 (which is how I remember seeing them) which is a 60' frame as opposed to the 42' #774 & #776 in the pictures. Painting and detailing to follow. The second wagon carries the gantry arm that is suspended between the 2 cranes and lifts the track panels. I will run this with 5 or 6 60' flats with track panels. Should look the part!
Hi guys, I've been researching for my layout and a train that has been mentioned is the Esat Cable Train. Anyone got any pictures? If my memory serves me right the 22' flat wagon that were in the sidings at Tullamore may have formed part of this set? I believe that CIE done a deal with Esat in the late 80s to allow them lay telecommunication cables along the railway lines, presumably in conjunction with the upgrading of CIEs own cabling and signaling. There is also mention of a 'cable plough', for trenching beside the line. This was taken out of service some time in the 90s (?) because a health and safety review said it had the potential to destabilize embankments and cuttings. Again, if any one has any pictures please share! Regards, David
