Irish Railway Models to Release Cement Bubble in Iconic Orange Livery

Recommended Posts

Interesting pic of Barry's.

The weather was possibly dull that day, because in reality they looked just very slightly brighter - basically the same orange-tan as carriages, or Donald's face....

The correct shade of brown is also evident on the van. Modern wagon brown is more reddish, but these vans were long gone before the newer brown was in use.

Luckily I got mine today!, Can I ask about the DPD contract you have?.

My first package was left outside my door in a Estate. How it was not pilfered I don't know and the second one exactly the same.

Before I lash an Email off to DPD are they Obliged to get a POD signed for. There is a Spate of Thefts recently, not restricted to my own area but it all seems a bit Careless by DPD to leave it outside my gaf in view of everyone.

I will change the Delivery address for any future things to work I reckon to be safe.

Dunno what anyone else thinks?

Thanks anyway lads. dunno how you manage the effort this time of the year but you did it.

enjoy the break lads!.

 I am out to the shed to run a train around the 1st laid loop on the layout. the Merchant Navy s will be taking a break tonight 

Yippie!!

Probably best to say it to them yourself George but we will say it to them too. Thanks for the order!

As the Good 'oul Post Office pay some of my pension, I'd be the last person to say something good about a courier firm.

However, the Lads addressed my package with just the well-known name of my house ("Pettigo Fair") and the DPD guy, to his great credit,  walked right round Lansdowne Road looking for the name! Now this Lansdowne Road is probably more of a maze than the corridors under the REAL Lansdowne Road, but he found me and delivered the package with a smile. And it was a day early!

Top Marks! 

Now, as for FEDEX - NEVER go near them - I sat in all day last Thursday week awaiting Conrad Natzio's new book - the package was in their Camberley office at 9am, for deliver by 6pm - it was delivered the next morning. THEY don't answer their phones either.

Finally, Lads, thank you for making such an effort to make so many of us guys happy by getting our pressies to us for Christmas. Nine of mine (the other three are still in their box) are whizzing round the loft behind my grey B121 and a fine sight they make.

Not in my wildest dreams when I saw these wagons for the first time as a teenager in the 1960s did I think that one day I would take mass-produced models of them out of a box and run them on my model railway!

Heartiest congratulations and thanks from a very happy septuagenarian!

I had a call from Mr DPD about an hour ago, looking for target coordinates for here - I now have my bubbles in front of me.

 

I was prepared for the brakes to be seized in the off-position, as on the ballasts, but was disappointed to find all six pressure gauges stuck - it'll be the cement dust, I suppose, at 1/76 scale, it'll just get everywhere.

 

Otherwise, they seem OK.

Do please wish the elves at the factory all the best - they have toiled well on our behalf.

Thanks everyone! I ventured over to the South Dublin Model Railway Club last night to drop off some orders. I was greeted with mince pies and a warm welcome. Thanks to Paul, Joe and everyone for the warm welcome and chat! I think everyone was delighted to see them arrive for Christmas!98BF4872-4C14-4A37-914C-82F3AC5D9C92.thumb.jpeg.53d21a3f396bd403b0f1de57c18a9815.jpeg

Are there any plans to produce 12 individual numbers in the orange bubbles?

No plans to introduce any more than the two packs available at present.
