IE decided to test a new high-speed service connecting Dublin with Paris via Rosslare. They acquired a specially modified and reguaged version of the Franco Belgium Thalys sets for testing purposes. Unfortunately, the project was not proceeded with as a result of the financial crash.

With the delivery of the final batch of trees before Christmas, the landscapers were on site today and installed 50% of the delivery, then the weather turned bad and the chaps did a runner- being Friday n all!

Where did you get that nice gate with the traditional round stone gateposts?  The stone walls look very good too.

Hi jhb

The gate is from Studio Scale models- brass etch kit, you get a number of period gates to work with, the posts I made from styrene cut with hot wire cutter, all mounted on a brass sheet base yet to be stuck down and gravelled......

Sublime Eoin. Love it. Photo realistic.  Where did you get the custom wicklow back scene from? It looks like a photo taken just SE of the Glen-o-the-downs. Perfect for Greystones

Hi Noel

It's from Expo Tools - 95281 Hills & Dales, we bought 2 of them, it comes in 2 sheets each and we used 3 sheets for the length of the layout, one of the bridges & trees masks the join....

Thanks. I thought I read somewhere that there was a company who will print back scenes from your own photos. Any ideas. I'm keen to pop over to Co Galway and take a few wide angle shots on a sunny day with the distinctive connemara countryside and all the grey stone walls.

Hi Noel

Any print shop with large format printer or banner printer will do it for you- 'One to One' in Dun Laoghaire, Hackets, or Grants. If you set-up the artwork for A1 sheet or banner printing you'll save a bit on the cost

Say you email them 2 or 3 images.....what sort of cost roughly?

Hi jhb

I'm not to sure, you would need to give them a call!  I used to use Copy Graphics in Clonskea to do colour A1 prints in the architectural days- they charged €26 for the first print and then a lower cost for each copy- so at a guess if you set-up the artwork yourself possible a charge around €20.00??

Tell the truth Eoin,you nicked those gate posts from a field down the road...😀😀😀 . But that landscaping is out of this World,  it's what I call attention to detail..! Looking just brilliant.
