Irish Railway Models Ltd announces change to working arrangement with DJ Models Ltd

Recommended Posts

Irish Railway Models Ltd today announces that it has ceased its working arrangement with DJ Models Ltd for its upcoming CIÉ/Irish Rail ballast wagon and cement 'bubble' wagon projects with immediate effect and will now deal directly with a factory in China for the production of these models.

 

It is envisaged that only minimal disruption to the manufacturing process will result from this development, with delivery of the ballast wagon expected in the first quarter of 2017. A definite production schedule will be provided in due course.

 

Furthermore, Irish Railway Models Ltd wishes to assure its customers that prices will not be affected by this move and we wish to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has placed orders for their loyalty and understanding.

 

Irish Railway Models Ltd wish DJ Models Ltd the very best for the future.

 

Responsibility for manufacturing the recently-announced Tara Mines lead/zinc ore wagon will also lie directly with Irish Railway Models Ltd.

DJ Models posted the following in rmweb http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/103982-irish-railway-models-new-rtr-oo-gauge-ballastmineral-hopper/page-2. It looks like the parting of the ways was amicable. We have to hope that IRM can pick up where DJM left off.

It's great to see IRM moving forward with what is a very positive move. This fills me with confidence as a customer for all future products.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. We are delighted by your support and we're working tirelessly to get these across the line for you all to enjoy. We have learned a huge amount over the past year that will serve us well going into this new era for IRM and we are sure that this move will speed up things going forward. :)
