Look What We Found: Irish Cement Bubbles!

Recommended Posts

Friday the 13th is usually seen as an unlucky day, but your luck may change for the better this week. We've just discovered a limited number of the highly sought after 'Irish Cement' branded cement bubble pack As in our warehouse!

As you may remember, these sold out rapidly when they arrived for the three day South Dublin Model Railway show back in October. We were reorganising our storage area and found 10 packs in a box from that show which we can now offer on sale.

Since these wagons are coveted by so many modellers, we have decided give everyone notice of their sale well in advance. These will go on sale online only this coming Friday, April 13th at 10am. There is a limit of one pack per customer and are sold on a 'first come, first served' basis.  

The price remains the same as we're sound lads (no stealth EBay accounts for us!) at €125.00 plus P&P per pack.

Make sure you don't miss out on your last chance to secure these packs! Place your order from Friday morning here.

Good Luck!

I remember when these bad boys sold out and could not be got ..and I was raging. I recall Fran saying he thought there might be one spare wagon (not a box!)....And like the man above with the loaves and fishes - A couple of boxes appear!  I tell you friends 'tis a miracle:dancing:

I think it was more like 3 minutes!😂

Great to see such demand. Perhaps a rerun of the Irish Cement logo ones are in order.

Went in just under 100 seconds. Wow! Still, if you missed out, you can console yourself with the plough no going on preorder maybe?

Agree, New Wagon Serials etc. Would be mad not to, however in a good few many months time.

We have hard pictorial evidence of four bubbles which had the Irish Cement branding and we did three of them. If someone can find us two more we will absolutely do a pack! :)

I've talked to a couple of lads who have bought sets C and D and added Railtec Irish Cement logos,  so there's always that option too! 

Oh God yeah, Irish railways are seriously complicated, as we have found out since we started IRM!  :)

Erm, we haven’t really decided yet! Terms would be same as the offer round the Wexford show. Thoughts?
