  1. Another set for sale on eBay. Doesn't specify shipping outside the US, though.
  2. I have to confess that I was being selfish, hoping that somebody would have more video or photos, but would also say that it won't be available too soon... Trying to catch up on the last ten or fifteen odd years of Irish models is very expensive, never mind the difficulty in tracking down some of the earlier Murphy Models stock. With IRM now selling some stunning freight models to replace my non-realistic freight stock, there is even more pressure on. There are the A Class and the 121 coming as well, so a small pause between the two would suit me very well!
  3. Thank you for the replies, and the detailed info. I suspect that part of Hornby's reasoning was to allow them navigate first radius curves easily, as I'm running them right now and there is massive clearance. I will practice on them at some stage while collecting longer Mk3's to one day work on. As I have only a tiny layout, and run first radius curves, the short coaches will probably have a life here either way.
  4. Hi All. I'm thinking of trying to repaint some Mk3 coaches into IE livery. Why are the Hornby coaches so much shorter than Lima / Silver Fox? It would be my first time attempting anything like this, so I would like to try some cheap, used ones rather than destroy something expensive. Which length is more accurate? Thank you!
  5. A bit late to reply, but I've missed out on most of the last ten to fifteen years of Irish models. I would definitely be interested in some 141 / 181's... After the A Class and 121's are bought, though!
  6. Did anybody visit Marks Models yesterday to see the 121?
  7. When I bought my sets, relatively recently, there were only something like four more sets left in stock, and the RPSI were considering their options as to a further set. Yes, identical sets, to satisfy my OCD and to allow me run a longer rake. With both buffet cars facing opposite directions, and ignoring the running numbers, two sets look lovely on the track together.
  8. Shortage of coaches: https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/irish-rail-customers-face-two-more-years-of-overcrowding-1.3994479? 41 new coaches hoped for, maybe something new to model?
  9. Hi @ganderino, here is the link to the RPSI shop. Aaaaargh, there's a spy in the midst! Yes, Tenerife, Canary Islands - not quite as exotic or distant as: ...but still far enough when you get a craving for Superquinn sausages, Tayto, King, Club Orange, red lemonade or cream soda... Not exactly islands with a rich railway heritage, but we have trams (Alstom Citadis 302's), a handful of abandoned mine railways, had trams from about 1880 until about 1950, had a light dock railway, and there are talks ongoing about constructing a 1435mm gauge railway with two lines. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, on the other hand, almost had a real railway built back in the seventies. They, too, are considering building a railway, but are talking about using 1668mm gauge. Anyhow, back on topic, my second set of RPSI Craven's arrived yesterday! Absolutely delighted!!!
  10. Hi All. I have been reading this forum for a long time, but never signed up to post before now. For anybody wondering, the RPSI still have some of their blue and cream Cravens coaches available. I received a set in the post today, and I am a loooooong way from Ireland. They are stunning!
