I love the colouring of the Irish countryside - a real, wet summer's day.

 

It's not exactly a major station but I remember getting out of a mk 2d set at Castlebar before the platforms were extended. Coaches 1, 2 and 3, the station; coaches 4 to 7, the airport. The guard announced that we had to move forward, but I still got off onto the ballast. I think Westport was similar. I used to use Galway station every week in the late 90s and I think that overhang is spot on. It would count as a SPAD anywhere else.

It takes 4m/12' of track, is 1m/ 3' long and 30cm/12" wide. It can hold 12 x 201's, 16 x 071's or 20 x 141/181's. Its the Beast of Ballykay. A big thank you to Glenderg for building this monster shed for me :tumbsup:

The first of the buildings has arrived from Glenderg for the main Street of Ballykay and I'm well impressed. A Big Thank You to Richie for all his hard work

Looks superb, pity it’s after closing time!

I take you will have the lights working?

It’s just something else, I love the weathered finish. You will need a micro camera installed inside to see what’s going on in there.

This is the first test run of the new turn table. It a Peco model painted and weathered. It is powered through Meccano gears and and uses the circuit board from a MM201 fitted with a 21pin decoder

Lads, thanks for all the kind words, it was one hell of a build, though I'm a bit spooked about the shallow clearance with the 121. That said, I'm looking forward to seeing her in the flesh with her second layer of weathering =)) The gutters, downpipes and mushroom ventilators will be winging their way north in the morning to complete the build.

 

Richie.

With the loco facilities at the Junction (Cilldargan) only running to 12" of track, 2 tanks and a pumphouse, it really is a case of the tail wagging the dog :ROFL:

Magnificent Beast, Anthony and Glenderg.

Fine job on Anthony's commission there Glenderg. It just looks "real".

 

Given the size, was this a practice run for the Inchicore works main building? :cool:

Thanks weshty (and I just wanted to start small and do signal boxes...:((:(( ) The old steam shed in Inchicore would be a real cracker all right though I could imagine Domestic Authorities denying Permission on the grounds of over development!:ROFL: [8 roads in? about 800mm wide? The front would make a nice entrance/backdrop to a fiddle yard though....:P
