  1. Happy New Year everyone and I'm not just saying that because I hit the Johnnie J's after the champagne! I'm still wearing out my new bubbles whizzing them round the loft. Even taught the grandson how to run three trains at once - isn't DCC wonderful? Good luck Pat, Fran et al with the new British venture. May 2018 be a big success for you - it'll be well deserved.

  7. Many thanks for kind comments every one. JHB-I found the Gaelic script by searching Google and found a site for Microsoft with a script called Bunchlo GC . Purely by guesswork I selected this as it looked correct for Bantry-it then appeared in my Excel spreadsheet list of fonts-how I achieved this I do not know as I am not that clever with modern technology! Have attached a couple more pics as I have now weathered the snack bar.hope I have not overdone it.

  8. I was told this in the mid 1970s while on a CIE "Runabout" ticket in Tralee. I had arrived behind an "A", three laminates and a tin heating van, probably one of the last in service. The yard was busy with another "A" shunting in preparation for the up goods. All loose-coupled, mostly "H" vans. I went walkabout to explore the still very much intact T & D station, Basin Halt and Blennerville station - all intact, though Blennerville was roofless. Basin was by now a well cared for house, but the platform (full height if I remember correctly; highly unusual for Irish narrow gauge and uniq

  11. Where did you get the Gaelic script font for the nameboard on the signal cabin? It's spot on - most modern Irish fonts are nothing like what the GSR used on those enamel signs.

  14. Leslie, it's NY Day. So - the bubbles you speak of - are they in a champers bottle, or do they run on rails? A very happy and successful New Year to you, by the way!

  15. What a year it has been! 2017 saw us successfully bring the first quality ready-to-run Irish outline model wagon to market which received high praise and we quickly followed it with another! We would like to sincerely thank all our customers and supporters for an amazing 2017! It wouldn’t have been possible without you. We’re looking forward to 2018 and four (yes, four!) newly tooled Irish models at least coming down the line! Happy new year from all the Irish Railway Models team!

  23. We have made some progress on Bantry station building.The basic shell has been assembled and some detailing taken place.The shell is Daler board covered with Evergreen clapboard (now very expensive!).Windows and doors are from Peco (one of the LK Packs)Bricks on the chimney are Slaters and will be painted with Humbrol 121 and detailed with Brick colour (Precision Dark Brick) and also one or two slight colour variations.(pictures later)Furniture is scratch built-not brilliant but it will do! will update as work progresses. Have attached a photo of Bantry station in later years
