Stunning looking. Is that a generic design they’ve produced or one to your specifications?

This is a one off gantry design for barrow street. They have previously made other signals for me including signals at the platform end of pearse street station

Wow,

Really love the old Boston sidings and the Inspection car. You really captured the look of the place and surrounding area. Almost surreal, really amazing work.

And the Trinity College new Bioscience building still a construction site. I actually worked in fitting out some of those floors haha.

That's pure class. Love it.

Work close to there, and that's an amazingly good resemblance to that stretch of track alright.

Kinda wished I hadn’t seen those now!  Incredible work, the detailing is superb, the buildings magnificent, the raised trackwork impeccable.

From an architectural point of view, the capture of the buildings is stonking good. The trackwork even could pass for 21mm. I'm only looking at this on mobile, but I'm goddamened looking forward to seeing it on the big screen when I get home. This is epic good, and deserves a spread in a magazine. 

Love the fart box too! 😆

Love the photo of the blocks of flats. Such a Dublin design that you can't but identify where it is set. For me, this is the best Irish layout I've seen to date.

The modelling is absolutely sublime.

Be interested in finding out how long this took to build, considering its large size.

barrow street replaced my previous layout greystones which the boards were salavged from. I started this  in 2006 and hae been on and off since then and have lost interest n many an occasion.

Wow! I heard rumors about the successor project to Greystones several years ago. If anything you have raised the standard of urban modelling even higher,  its been well worth the wait!!!!!!!!!!

Warb, I am speechless. How has this one remained secret!

Your layout is among the top masterpieces I've ever seen. An urban setting is rarely done with convincing scenery. Everything about that - the setting, proportions, atmosphere and accuracy is absolutely top class.

Well done! Maybe more about your locos and stock?

Superb modelling-one of the best and most detailed layouts I have ever seen-a few of the ECM produced DART units would finish this scene off very well.

Looking forward to more updates.:tumbsup:
