    • Several hopefully, couple of PM's already looking for some ¬†
    • If you have one for sale at the next Bray event?
    • Saw models of ICRs on sale last year at one of the¬†toy fares in Stillorgan. The box looked impressive but inside was a Bachmann class 170 commuter DMU resprayed into IR Silver/Green livery. Wasn't impressed despite the excellent respray job. They just didn't look like Irish Rail's Rotem ICRs, doors totally wrong making them look odd, front not quite right either. ICRs are not my personal cup of tea anyway as they are operationally very boring for a model layout, just back'n'forth, no loco, no soul, you wouldn't want DCC sound because outside they sound so lame. Inside the prototype you end up with a headache after the first two hours Killarney-Dublin such is the engine noise under the floor, vibration and firm seats. No proper catering either. In recent years on some routes they have become like sardin cans due to overcrowding. ¬† As a regular intercity rail traveller my heart will drop if the loco hauled mk4 CAF sets are ever replaced with these hideous boring yo-yos. If I got a model of an ICR as a present I'd give it away to a child who'd appreciate it better and enjoy watching¬†it race around the top of a kitchen table in frantic circles. ¬†

      Hello Wrenneire, 
      I gather from a post you made back in 2017, that you may have a Backwoods miniatures kit of the LLSR Hudswell Clarke 4-8-0 tender locomotive? I also have one but with no instructions! 
      I was wondering if you would mind helping me out, by scanning or photographing each page of the instructions and emailing them to me? I would be very grateful as I’m in such a bind with this kit. I’m sure you know how complicated they can be.
      Email: pat.jaya185@gmail.com
       
      kindest regards 
      Pat
