  4. in 2015 when I bought my kids a train set in portlaoise, i saw for the first time the glass shelves loaded of lord Murphy Models, that's exactly what inspired me to buy one and get into trains in the first place and end up here annoying the rest of you on IRM. Every time i run his models i find happiness, they masterpieces. who are these internet trolls bad mouthing mr M.??? i will tie them down on my 00guage and run high speed over them back and forward with my very powerful silverfox 121, i wouldnt waste the power of MM 201 on such fools... Murphy Models are wonderful.... thank you Mr Murphy, thank you IRM for carrying the baton on.
  5. i dont have many searches for train stuff, but i have heaps of searches and alerts for other stuff, its often the case the items i looking for dont appear in my searches, i still have to go looking for them, with strange key words, indeed, in past 4 years some of my murphy models came from unspecific searches for model rail, or black n orange, i got a great deal with a toy train search some years back, bought a big box of cravens for very little.
