Or a survey photo of one sq inch of A39r cab door handle, and a little green foliage¬†to make it authentic. ūüėĄ

imageproxy.php?img=&key=ac96cff20d889157We’ve just had additional shelving installed in IRM towers in preparation for all the additional models we will have in stock this year for both IRM and Accurascale. The IRM stock alone that we are announcing on March 3rd will take up a healthy portion of space!

We did an interview with Ben Jones for the May edition of Hornby Magazine, discussing the plans for IRM and Accurascale and our background to date. Not sure it will give a 'behind the scenes' look at us but it might give an insight into all things IRM. @Garfield will sign copies at the Bangor show on a first come, first served basis! :)

Afterwards, I'll drive the van into the nearest pool and throw the TV through the hotel room window. May as well start as I mean to go on...

Keith Moon and John Bonham rolled into one Pat. Ditch the van it will only have any credibility if it's a Roller.

Rich,

I don’t know about that, Rich... the IRM passion wagon has a unique charm and class of its own!

If it has to be the van then it has to be the van Pat. Just make sure the tv is an old school tv and not a flat screen job it just won't go off the same way when it hits the ground, and make sure you book out the whole top floor of the hotel.

Rich,

It was a tough one, but we managed to smuggle him out of the country on some Accura business....

I hope ye're using this to subsidize the irish wagons, coaches, and locos!? WE don't want IRM drifting too far to the dark side now.....

Good to see , I know of a selection of modelers waiting the day .

As experts on all things Irish do any of the wagon buffer packs have cross over to Irish wagons ?

Hopefully that's already clear in the new Tara Mines wagon pack prices :)

In a big day for IRM / Accurascale, our first British model arrived in from China and we have been flat out wrapping and packing them for shipment to their new homes!

(thank you to those of you who have supported us with a couple of purchases of them despite modelling Irish, we appreciate that! )

The wagon looks great and this must be the best quality wagon around.

I'm not surprised they like them and i knew the box would get a thumbs up. :-bd :-bd

Yeah and they seem to really dig the presentation and packaging too. Has a real¬†quality look to it. Think I'm going to have to get myself a pack. Might get a TOPs pack and run it with NIR 111 in a 1980s theme where they are trialing ex BR hoppers regauged as a possible replacement for the Seacows.ūü§™¬†From looking at the RM web customer pics up recently these wagons look a step up again in detail over anything released so far under the IRM branding which I did not think was possible. These HUOs seem to be rammed full of tiny over the top detail most people would never notice but it's all there. Just amazing what they have achieved with these in the 6 months since they were announced.¬†

Patrick and I did our first show in Britain this weekend, doing the Perth show sharing a stand with Dave of Model Rail Baseboards. Lots of love for the HUO and for IRM too, selling several bubble packs along the way! It was also good to see familiar faces from home and meet some new ones too. Great seeing two Irish outline layouts running IRM stock at the show too! Expect to see us both at future events in Blighty throughout this year and beyond.

Troops, It was a pleasure to have each of you join us in Perth.  I look forward to the possibility of this being the first in a long series of visits to our annual festival of Model Railways in the Fair City of Perth. The  "Flying Snail"  used on Old Blarney is featured in your photograph.  a truly Irish picture! Was this intentional? Anyway, it was great to meet each of you.
