  1. More scenics After a bit of a gap over Christmas & the New Year, action has recently focussed again on the baseboards. Number three, nearest the fiddle yard, was reasonably complete, while the middle, number two board had not really been started. First up then was to try and finish off BB3. This meant waiting until after the Chatham club's annual competition, as I wanted to enter the loco shed, to which I also added the coal stage/water tower. And it was worth it too, as the models not only won the 'Buildings' shield, they won the overall shield too, which you can see from the photo

  2. I did watch the grass for quite a while, and it did seem to be fairly static. For people in the middle of the Big Island, it may be less traumatic than a visit to Warley.

  4. There were some nice fiddle yards. A couple of bits I missed earlier. Having mentioned the lack of lighting on some layouts earlier, there was one which, although nicely lit for the viewers and the (front mounted) operator, was a bit of a bind for everybody else... There were "real trains" outside, too. And a cordless, rechargeable lawnmower.

  5. In line with recent rail procurement purchasing history, these sheep are all descended from the famous Dolly. They are GM sheep.

  9. Thanks for the offer, but I managed to get in touch with the IRRS to obtain the 5 journals I wanted. Typically, after I obtained the selection of Feb 1985-Oct 2003; a full collection of 1970-1990 appeared for sale! Though rather dearer. Thankfully after these 5, that should be it really, the only other ones I'd ever likely want are those from 1972-73 detailing the Mk2d introduction to service, but I think I'll concentrate on the Mk3s for the time being still! The wealth of information I've read so far, and much not pertaining to Mk3s at all, has been interesting, illuminating an

  13. While sorting through my slide collection I came across a photo I took of the prototype covered gypsum wagon 26674 at North Wall on Monday 25th November 2002, it did 1 trip to Kingscourt on a trial, the entire fleet was to end up this way, but it never happen, issues with the ILDA dispute and then the traffic ceased in October 2001.

  14. As an aside, KMCE, I love your trackwork and ground cover - so very realistic. I notice that, bizarrely, the whole train has had LINING added! (Vital in times of war!)

  15. I would agree, brianmcs, that we need a transport museum like Cultra, but within an hour's drive of Dublin or less. Some larger items of 12" = 1ft scale could be centre stage; all preservation groups have sidings full of stuff that will NEVER run again. I am sure that many of these bodies could provide stuff on permanent loan. One of the aspects of such a development might, indeed, contain a reconstructed "castle" (or, indeed, replica Fry) layout. Then the "castle" models could get an outing again!

  16. I've said it before and I'll say it again. PM could do another run of BGMs and they would still sell like hot cakes. There's so many modelers getting into the Irish scene since they officially sold out, many of them interesting in the IR and IE eras.

  17. Bit more scenic work done now. Bit of set dressing and backscenes starting to go in. I’m not really a painter so less is definitely more!

  18. Another update on two buildings of rostrevor court for barrow street which have been a pain to do. Main buildings complete now for paths and exterior landscaping to do.

  19. The attached may be of interest, from another of the (extremely) occasional posts of stuff in the “catacombs” in the study..... I well recall the ”Lady Patricia”, the ”Lady Gwendoline”, the ”Grania” and the “Miranda Guinness”, the latter not yet built when this booklet was produced about 1959/60.
