  1. Ta, This month a chap wrote in with the location details to cleart that matter up!
  2. Just reading this which contains normally UK stuff and always contains inspirational Photographs of the Rail network around Britain but Feb has a couple of Delightful Pictures in it of A's and C's and some other stuff. Worth getting a copy for a Gander. all you need is a lovely Green A class and two Coaches and you would be able to Create that lovely scene depicted!
  3. Cluster down here in Conna by all accounts (HSE Info from an insider). given the horse activity down here no surprise really the thicks. Just in Marks cork there at lunch for some stuff before the shut for a while, Pity as well as new chap just got going!
  4. H.S. That pretty awesome and to see full Length HST flying about too. Will this be on the irish Circuit? Thing is now when you start running trains things slow down a bit cause your watching them more!
  5. Finally Launched today, Tide was a bit low in the Pond on Fermoy but nice day for the First Voyage. She sits a bit too low so a small Batter in the hold will have to be trialled. Well pleased with this, 3 yearsit took and I love it!!
  6. pic here, Class J24 - 472 - CB&SCR 0-6-0ST, built 1881 by Beyer Peacock as Cork, Bandon & South Coast Railway No.6 - 1925 to GSR as No.472 - withdrawn 194
  7. No air transport for the foreseeable future = no job for me with probably future layoff!! Can't win it seems. I would always suggest getting an old-fashioned type, "with knobs on" - - It has one knob on - Just like Myself.... Lets hope that does not stop working....
  8. Interesting to see this from a Farmer like yourself Mr Wayside when much of the Hedgerows are being cutback , dugout, Dykes filled in, Wetland continously being drained, Trees being much maligned. Much of this causing our own crisis with biodiversity and human suffering such as flooding. much of which is gone, what remains on old railways tends to be woodland flora in shade and gorse/furze or shrub in sun. Loads of Trees is lismore along the old allignment were levelled last month Refreshing see your a bit more enlihtended on this it seems Mr Wayside. Cheers George
  9. MMmm Not a massive Fan of the Guardian but this rings piece does not surprise me. Nature bites back. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/mar/18/tip-of-the-iceberg-is-our-destruction-of-nature-responsible-for-covid-19-aoe
  10. Thats a crappy deal. not even scented.
  11. You know What Noel, I pretty well pissed of with the Chinese. Whats going to come down the line next from this crowd? Maybe its time to bring manufacturing back home and move from that crowd. It just shows how much the planet depend on them really. If the whole of China went down we would be goosed not to mind the toys in the happy meals gone. I would not mind paying a small bit extra for good quality stuff. People might think twice about buying cheap throwaway stuff and go back to longer lasting quality products but it is all growth this and growth that looking after the uber rich and thier Mini liners in Monaco. Seriously enough though they produce enough rubbish that we really don't need, Much of it plastic crap that the kids play with once or twice before it ends up land fill. Time to end the making of that sort of crap too. The EU should but a quality system in place to reject those sort of products from plastic rubbish toys stuck on the front of Kids mags right up to electrical goods that dont have a long life. We throw away too much these days. I am tired of it all. The Mircowave here as gone tits up, just because one button has stopped working, Not that old either but out of Warrenty. Too Expensive to get a dude to look at it not to mind repair it, Just might have look myself to see If I can replace it with summit in the shed. Apologies for the rant and not a 121 chat, Self islolation needed in the man cave for the day I think as I have a RC Boat to Finsh off in case me Dad pops his clogs without seeing it along with some nice music. Bye for now G
  12. Not to pushed about 121's as nice as they are, Just need to get through the next weeks, Months, year without burying anyone close. When they arrive they arrive.

  18. Looking for undersea internet cables this side of the Pond apparently hence the circular tracks of the south west of Ireland last week.

  20. Nice one, New Layout for Exhibitions Noel?
  21. Not Great on Slighty slight curves from my own recent testing which is a PITH as most of my sidings / bays are curved out of necessity. What do you use to dampen the Magnetic attraction of the wheel sets to the track magnet.I find some of my stock shoot towards the Magnet and make uncoupling impossible without a bit of sponge on top of the axle. Good vids Noel in all fariness. Theshunting is pretty infectious too!
  22. You're not the buddy of Ray Canole in Cork per chance, Can be to many modellers up that Direction? When I was in Marks Models a few years there was a Familty from Ferbane that used to come into the shop picking up the odd railway bits?
