  1. Thank you for all of that. Seems liker there is a good case for a full brake in Black n' Tan, and I'll certainly point that out. As a matter of curiosity if these ran with Cravens albeit for a short time what else did those Galway trains consist of? What a great picture, it expands the case.
  2. Hi JHB, I have yet to follow up with Hatton's on my original communication with them and before doing so I have a few questions you may have the answers to. Given they they are offering quite a few options in these models and the fact they may view what we are asking for as very niche and impractical it seems to me that our best chance is to narrow down the options we would like to see on Irish liveried versions. Firstly do we need to see Irish livery on all four of the six wheelers. I note that one of these is a full brake and another is a brake 3rd. So the question is would one bra
  3. All true but I was wryly thinking that ideally a model of these six wheelers should have this sign on a window or two, the incongruity being that we have models with no smoking signs on the windows.
  4. Interesting detail visible at 1:45 in the video. A "smoking" sign on the coach window advertising Wills Gold Flake. How times have changed.
  5. Also available RTR was the NCC "Jinty" 0-6-0 tank loco, thanks to Murphy Models/Bachmann.
  6. Just the same a little dalliance* is permissible, as I think I've said before variety is the spice of life. *(I mean modelling nothing else)
  7. You should expand your horizons, Given the slow pace of infrastructure change on Irish Railways over a long period of time it's possible (perhaps with a bit of license) to represent multiple periods on the same layout.
  8. Just to advise that I also contacted them recently with the same question and while a got a very polite response you seem to have managed to get a bit further than I did. I will certainly follow up with Mr. Mylett and as you suggest would encourage anyone else that is interested to do likewise. If you don't ask !!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. We are risking the IRE of the moderators for drifting off topic. But I agree with you. An 800 would sell to collectors and to those of us that want to would run it and it would be particularly attractive packaged as a train set as you suggest. Unfortunately given the time frames we have witnessed on the production of Irish models over the past 15 years or so I may not be around to see this. But closer to the topic of this thread, I think it's a safer bet to expect a tank wagon from IRM in the nearer term. Your wife is right.
  10. AEC Railcars and laminates, that brings a smile to my face and let's not forget Park Royals. But do you really believe we can hope for an 800?
  11. Just wondering if there has been any further progress on this project, I'm very interested
  12. You are to be commended for this. However, I have to admit while I completely understand the price it is at the limit of where I might be tempted to go. I would definitely go there (even plus a bit) for Maeve. I'm interested in virtually everything that ran in the period 1950 - 2000 but even in that I need to set some limits and accordingly basically ruled out Northern Steam but you are seriously tempting me to go there, for sure I would not be able to resist a model of No.4. I'll complete the survey for you. Wishing you the very best of luck with this.
  13. Hattons are selling a modular system https://www.hattons.co.uk/newsdetail.aspx?id=900&utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=content&utm_campaign=mar-0729-hattonsprecisionbaseboardsrange&_ke=eyJrbF9lbWFpbCI6ICJ0aG9tYXNjYnJvbmFuQGdtYWlsLmNvbSIsICJrbF9jb21wYW55X2lkIjogIkpHUWVYaCJ9 Is this the same or is it compatible?
  14. I concur. Symoba offer a short and a long NEM pocket, they provide a height gauge but most interestingly they produce a very neat kinematic mounting plate intended to be mounted to the underside of the body rather than to a bogie. Their products are also available from DCC Supplies. Hornby supply a 10 pack of their NEM pockets (product code X6354) which I believe are available from Peters Spares. Bachmann supply spare couplings complete with NEM pockets, they don't seem to sell the pockets separately. The product codes of those I know of are 36-027, 36030 and 36-061.
