Irish tram models?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Are any models or kits of historical Irish electric trams available, besides the ones I've listed below?  I've only been able to find these kits currently available, even with searches on Shapeways and i.materialise.  I couldn't readily match any of the Corgi OO bodies to an Irish design, but what am I missing?  Any old kits that are long out of production, or any 7 mm scale kits or models?

Dublin cars 121-170 (1899):

Good find. The Cork tram is noted as an 00 gauge kit, but they were a strange gauge of 2 ' 11 7⁄16 "  in reality to allow 3" gauge stock from the Muskerry and the Passage railways to run over the tramway system, which never actually happened in the end.
