Ebay Purchase tonight

Recommended Posts

I have absolutely nothing of Irish passenger stock so tonight I bought this set NEW off Ebay @ £200. I think they are quite rare and although this type of thing never ventured on the Derry Road, its simply something Irish to start my collection.

It is expensive but surely its worth it. Whats your opinion Wrenneire?

It is what it is Tony. Green loco usually brings in a few bob more than the 2 black ones, Mint boxed examples can make up to €150

Coaches are in the €40 - €50 bracket so I reckon you did not do too bad

Wrap in in Christmas paper and stick it under the tree!!!

Thanks Dave.

The one sure thing about this purchase is that is concludes one sure thing. I'm modelling Irish and its 00 gauge!

It's in CIE 1945-55 livery, Tony. The carriages are not authentically Irish, as they are re-liveried LMS stock, though with the commonality of Derby design, they're not unlike some ex-NCC vehicles. 

The loco would have run under both CIE and GSR banners. The GSR painted them the usual all-grey, and it was CIE that painted most of the class lined green.
