    • over 20 years from the GFA - you would think they would have got around this..................mental Here is the link for "Norn Iron"......... Its actually very good - with more choice on maps than we have on OSI................stuff from the 30s to 60S aswell   I wonder do the OSI have maps from the 30's,40's and 50's that they just haven't got around to digitalising yet - looking for those missing pieces like the South Wexford line , Waterford - New Ross and the Castlecomer and Wolfhill lines..........  
    • The National Archives have stuff from all 32 counties. I suspect the IRRS goes too. The IRRS is very easy to deal with regarding historical material (though certainly NOT photographs!). I have viewed many old maps in there. Contact Anthony, Norman or Herbie.
    • The Republic that is not the North. Most annoying! Ernie
    • My recollections of those cranes are few, but yellow seemed to be standard. Not because yellow was the standard “safety” colour, as nowadays, but because (like JCB) it was the manufacturer’s own livery.  I saw a red one regularly when l was a child but it wasn’t railway owned. I’m pretty sure that CIE or the UTA never painted them in their own colours, though a logo might have been possible.

      I'm considering doinng a six wheeler or two after the cattle - probably GSWR first - a third and a brake would seem a good option and nice to stick behind your J15?

      I've had a look - about 4/5 show buildings including the works, shed and one behind the Donegal-bound platform.

      dont ask, i have specific reasons for this strange method of building
      small Attic  , It just fits 2 x 9x5 boards and a short mid section with an extra few meter runs both sides in holes in walls into small side attics. 2 levels built, 3rd is planned
      Track = >100 metres peco 100 track all mostly laid, star shape bus, 2.5 and 1.5 twisted bus, block wiring, two rail isolated gaps, 7 metre bus runs including track, too many insulfrogs , 80% of layout is wired above board, due to low ceiling and it being kids layout, while I sorta understood 'power divisions' and the difference x circuit breakers and then track occupancy requirements, as most is manual, i'v left all that to the latter part of the build, which is where I am now at, i use sand to level tracks and underlay for ballest
      when i get the next section of track layed i will upload it to IRM
