Hi Guys

 

Who would be the best person or place to find out more about this class of locos and who may also have a works drawings of them?

 

Thanks in advance.

New Irish Lines gave away drawings of GSR locomotive with their magazine but I don't see any D14's in them.

I will ask Alan to see what he has.

Tim Cramer built an O Gauge model of superheated D14 No 61 in lined green CIE livery and published an article on the "Irish Greyhounds" incl scale drawings in an Irish Modelling special published with British Railway Modelling April 2014.

 

The special included articles with coloured photos on Tony Raggs O Gauge Knockmore Junction & Noel Dodd's Greystones layout a staple of the Irish exhibition circuit during the late 1980s

The D14s were the small "Kerry Bogies". The 60 class were D17.....

Was the D17 (Inchicore Class) not the GSWR/GSR Class 52?

There's even a free pdf to download online but I didn't see the supplement

 

Hi there was the download part of the magazine? or is that at a different web address?

 

Just found the Irish supplement so that can be added to the list.

It was a printed insert, and about as handy as chocolate teapot. All the drawings were scaled differently in the X Axis to the Y Axis so had a slightly elliptical profile to them. I took a fancy to an 0-6-0 GSWR, scanned it, then discovered the error whilst trying to re-draw it. It was mentioned to the editor, and I got no satisfaction. Stopped subscribing and contributing. R

I have got the supplement which only has a drawing for a class 60 but not the GSWR 0-6-0 Can you let me have more details about the 0-6-0 such as what was it class and if you know the builder, I will start a search for some works drawings.
