Now that it has some 1960s Irish stock I will have to finish it! :)

Great stuff here Noel you have a lovely rake of stock here, great loco sounds and the Cl 55 Chassis was a great transplant for your A, lovely smooth running.

Hi Noel, while browsing through treads, I noticed something on this one of yours, which I cannot make out exactely what it is, to be more specific it's to the right of B142 & the left of 227, unless of course I'm seeing things, which would'nt be unusual !!!

If you are referring to my picture (ie. the photograph), what you are looking at is the engine cover/hood off an Intercity liveried 201 locomotive on a flat-wagon, looking like a shed (hence the 'shed' nickname given to the UK's GM Class 59 and 66 locomotives). ;)

Hi Ciaran & sorry about the mixup & thanks, I was beginning to think it was some kind of a Shunter as the back of the wagon looked like the hood of a Shunter,
