Have you made more than one album?

 

Click All images, then New album from the drop list to do so.

 

Then add images to that album.

 

It's only an issue if you want to find them again.

 

There used to be a 250 limit for free use, but it seems to be infinite now.

Did anyone here buy the C class builders plate? I put an absentee bid on it, but fell short.

It made €320 (€384 after commission)

It wasn't a brass one though,

B, not to worried about Imgur, just dumping everything in the same album

I did what you said previously but adding pics to the new album was impossible for me so I will leave things as they are.

Just saw some photos of the auction on Facebook and noticed a station sign for Float in the background. Would've taken a punt on that if I'd noticed it in time! Any idea what it went for?

Isn't 184 carrying plates up in Whitehead?

Assume there were recast and not the 1880 originals?

I think 184 and 186 are like Triggar's sweeping brush at this stage with many original parts being replaced over time I know that 184's boiler dates from 1944 for example .

Plate looks like it may have been replaced because of ware?

I picked up this sign today.

 

On the rear in ballpoint it says 'WORKS FOREMAN WELLINGTON BRIDGE' a pretty local station which I may try to replicate in the future. I also share last names with the guy on the sign.

I have to agree with the guy who commented that putting so much stuff up at once would keep the prices down - just £3,000 for a S Class nameplate?

 

Interesting to see the variation in price - but if you lived virtually anywhere in Ireland you could pick up something with your local station name on it - obviously, in some cases there were two folk chasing (very hard) for the same thing.

 

Dave, I'm glad Malahide ended up with a "Local Boy" - all right and proper.

 

184's numberplate is the original -I understand that the ones on the engine are copies.

 

Old John's estate has certainly had a boost!

As Leslie says after a very hard dog fight, secured this gem.....absolutely unique piece of history

 

Well done 201

If memory serves me. the dearest of all the tablets on the night?

I was very surprised to see that each of the 3 NCC number plates went for 500 or less each. There was one for sale last month on the mainland and it went for £750.

 

Number plate 100 I thought should have sold for a lot more, anyway if I wasn't a student and not saving up for uni, then I would have definitely bid, ah well plenty more time left.

Yes it was! it was €520.......probably undervalue though given its rarity! Funnily a second Kerry (staff) Glenbeigh to Killorglin sold for €500.

 

Also accidentally got the CBPR axle box!

Excellent buy, excellent cleaning job.

 

It's better to clean up, as obviously a repaint - even if absolutely correctly done - decreases value.

 

I notice that not only this, but other wagon / coach / tender numberplates too, were described inaccurately by the auctioneers as being off locomotives!

 

Surely they must realise that the DSER never had 913 engines in their sheds.....!

Theres VAT involved in the cost but I imagine he gets around 17% of the hammer

He also collects the same fee from the seller!!!

Hung a few over the weekend as well.

 

The words 'hung, 'over' and 'weekend' so often occur in the same sentence...

Indeed.....and as I often tell tourists, when explaining the implications of actually seeing, rather than just hearing, the banshee, "most Irishmen meet her in person when we get home from the pub on a Saturday night"......
