  1. great to see the blues finally and it will be great for those that never got taras originally
  2. rip to a fellow modeller hopefully his layout and stock gets enjoyed by someone in time
  3. well suppose that rules out what irm will be doing now and great to see the first rtr mk3 dvt been done at last these should be good sellers for paddy
  4. i wonder could we not claim the slides negs were produced in ireland as they are usually of irish items
  5. just got this from facebook if its genuine which i believe its going to be great for us Great news from Paddy Murphy !! 201 Class locomotives There will be short production runs of the 201 Class locomotive in three different liveries. These will be the most recent Enterprise livery, the interim Black & Silver 'Raccoon' livery and the Intercity green/silver livery with the current IE logo. Exact schedule is not available at present but it is hoped late 2021/first half 2022. Because of the small quantities involved, these will be allocated to model shops on a
  6. there goes the bank balance
  7. id also be looking at types that may be sold through accruscale the olympian from irbus has done very well with various variants even though id love to see a readily built average price d or kc i think a good option is the av as its got lots of livery choices and a lot went to the uk for operators
  8. i actually bought 2 of those sets in from the us may not be perfect but at least is was more realistic than the hornby steam sets we had before and it could be the way to get the kids into modelling think of the rpsi main market children who will grow up loving steam trains and some might even want one to run on a layout
  9. i assume now that production has started that you have final numbers of each loco and you could technically put up the remaining numbers available after preorders on each loco on the site which may help for people to know which locos to buy before they are gone
  10. all of them I presume now that production has started we might see some really interesting in build pictures to wet our appetites for them
  11. Just thinking Seen as IRM have proved and excelled themselves in the hobby so far with their range of Irish Railways would they do the same for road based vehicles. Rapido trains have proved how they can create a plastic bus similar to Herpa , Wiking and Busch but far better and allowing multiple liveries and registration route choices. Do we think that IRM could do something similar and do an iconic Irish bus in this way or even other vehicles like trucks vans or cars that only operated here. on the other hand would love a LUAS tram
  12. Looking at what IRM has said and others have said steam may be a difficult one for sales . However if a steam loco was done it needs to be a well known seen one as said before no 4 gives options for the UK version so may help that one push ahead. Personally i would love to see 461 or 85 . In relation to numbers I am not sure how it works out with economics for irm but im certain people would pay extra for a proper built Irish loco the OO works U classes and J15 classes showed that . I purchased 2 J15 locos at 295 pounds sterling each so would not have a qualm about paying the s

    yes seen it fairly pricey for one
  14. wow with accruscale announcing a steam engine today dont think anyone seen it coming i wonder will we see a similar announcement here later this year. Could you imagine an irish steam loco done by IRM and the good thing is there are a few in preservation that can be scanned easily

    80 class

    anyone remember who used to build and sell 450 and 80 class trains in the 90s i know he had issues with a garage flood years ago but have long lost his details
  19. just wondering has anyone else noticed that oxford diecast irish models are now in the vehicle section on the website even though all listed as out of stock. is this a new venture for irm
  20. id say if irm are going to do a carraige its going to be the detrich for livery choices followed maybe by the park royal. i would love a dmu or emu as to date no company has done a rtr version most likely loco would be the c class to complememnt the a class an nir jeep would be something interesting to test the steam water id say pleanty of buses as well
  21. might help irm then as there registered for vat in both ireland and the uk for selling irm to uk and accruscale to ireland
  22. i would assume that even though its 7 announcements that they wont all appear in stock before the a class
