Are there any modellers in Co.Mayo?

Recommended Posts

Hi, are there any modellers who are in the Mayo area. Maybe we could get together occasionally to share ideas and possibility start a model railway club.

Hi Tom, thanks for your message. I'm near Ballyhaunis. My interest is quite diverse, I have mostly British outline models in N, 00 and recently some in 0 gauge. Also US HO of which I have a small diesel depot layout made, and have a few Irish models from MurphyModels/Bachmann. My Irish stock is 3 x 141/181 loco's, 3 Craven coaches, and a rake of Bachmann/Murphy MK2's. Regards.. John

hi john, i know ballyhanuis quite well, my grand father used to visit the corner bar years ago with my grand uncle.As i have read you have a bit of everything,i would call it a universal railway company ,you would'nt know whos coming down the track. You have a nice bit of stock.my stock is mostly irish from murphy models to bachmann to lima and some english stock.I have 4x181, 3x 201 , 6x mk2 galway livery coachs, a good few mk3 coaches, 6x cravens , 8x mk2 lima coaches. i bought a lot of british rail mk2 and mk3 coaches for repaints and alot of hornby freight from container carriages to coal carriages ,a bit of everything. I will be making my layout soon i hope , it all takes time.i hoping to build it in the 80s era. i have realised its not a cheap hobby.........cheers.....tom

Hi guys and welcome, I'm not on Mayo, on the East side, you seem to have a fair share of stock to help get yourselvs on the road of setting up a layout, I have mostly UK outline rolling stock, made up of carriages, wagons, some diesel's, some loco's, all oo gauge, I would get confused with the other gauges, so I stick to what I think I know something about, I don't have a layout as yet, it's in the planning stage, just like all the others, :trains:
