No Stevie,

Shes gone back into Storage. Cash seems to be thin on the ground these days, Even 201's for €115 euro dont sell!!

I'll probably try Ebay for these when I get the time.

Cheers

George

Whoever prints their box labels can come into the quiet room with me, and I will "re-educate" them!

Pills? I've swallowed three bottles of them, and a pint of cough syrup!!!

"N class"! Aaaarrrrgggghhhhhh

 

 

 

OK, I'm in the quiet room now. Goodnight......

A N D...... it appears to have a YELLOW flying snail. Why? No steam engine EVER had a yellow flying snail!

 

Now I need smelling salts and my toes are curling up.

Since you're clearly having your hot cocoa, I may even do a few tweaks on it, make sure it has that broadstone look? I do like a kettle, but she'll never, sadly, be a Sambo :( 

(That's of course if I get it - @Georgeconna)

The nurse put those funny salts in my tea again this morning......

It's actually a superb loco. AND - as always - ANYONE who manufactures ANY Irish prototype has my 101% support.

At the risk of causing upset, box actually says Irish liveried version of the SR N class mogul. The could have given it the Irish classification of K1. Whether we’ll ever get a RTR U/K1a is anyone’s guess.

Tis very true, Stevie!

Surely there's a British RTR version of the actual SR N class?

It's one loco that probably did have the odd black example in the very late 50s..... grey, obviously, earlier, and also some in lined green I think. All needed would be a EDN snail instead of the yella one!

Hi Richie,

Just seen the Message and PM'd you there now.

I can turn it into a K1 and just have it broken down into parts for you to reassemble when you get it, Just like the real deal!

Cheers

There is the option of painting white circles on the tender and smoke box and run her as an oil burner, post-war?

Absolutely! 

An oil tank would need to be put in the tender, and this makes me realise that I'm unaware of ever seeing a photo of above or inside an Irish oil-burner's tender. Anyone else?

I wouldn't mind seeing that either. It would have to be a shot from a bridge, I suppose ... or maybe the oil tank is bigger than I had envisaged and not cylindrical?

There's an actual loco oil tank in a very public place somewhere in an Irish Rail station, if you know where to look! ;)

Painted grey and barely noticeable, last time I saw it.

I hadn't noticed the white circle being offset to avoid the  flying snail. It was white and not eau de nil, correct?
