  1. Speaking of yellow things, where's the flying, thumping banana? Aka the Last of the Eighties, aka the NIR Sandite train? Seems to have disappeared from her siding at York Road Works. Indoors, being readied for her next/last Sandite season?
  2. Snapped the hopppers at Central on Saturday, on the way back from the UMRC show:
  3. Still there today (25 Jul 17), as seen through a grimy bus window...
  4. Very nice! A rake of three might have been enough, though...
  5. Pics are up on Flikr, for those unable to make it: Bleach Green: https://www.flickr.c...157657599108826 Lisburn: https://www.flickr.c...157657247251099
  6. Didn't make Saturday as originally planned, but got up today. Highlight of course was seeing Bleach Green, the current BRM piece serving as a nice appetite-whetter. Well no, the highlight was being invited behind the scnes and meeting Colm and Ken whose layouts and stock - and a certain Irish DMU book by the former - account for about 90% of my motivation in returning to the hobby in the last couple of years. Being able to see and snap a fiddle-yard full fo NIR & UTA stock was not to be forgotten. Will post the pics on Flikr; in the meantime here are some of Bleach green, the other outstan
  7. You might be interested in this, then, if you can find one second hand: http://www.marksmodels.com/?pid=6452
  8. Thanks John, too kind! Re RTR railcars, there's these, from Silver Fox... http://silverfoxmodels.co.uk/nir-ir-ie-2600-class-railcar-aecpark-royal/ ...basically, repainted BR Cravens DMUs. Though too short, you could get a roughly comparable result by repainting a Tri-ang DMU, after cutting away the two cab front window pillars and replacing one, in the middle; and preferably rounding the 'peak' in the cab front (and possibly repositioning the three headlights to more correct positions). Two power car bodies would also be preferable as the AEC power cars all had b
  9. Who says railcars/DMUs aren't popular with modellers here? http://irishrailwaymodeller.com/showthread.php/2279-UTA-suburban-MPD-set http://irishrailwaymodeller.com/showthread.php/3478-Class-80-Builds http://irishrailwaymodeller.com/showthread.php/3459-UTA-Multi-Engined-Diesel?p=53934#post53934 http://irishrailwaymodeller.com/showthread.php/2345-NIR-80-Class-DEMU http://irishrailwaymodeller.com/showthread.php/2678-NIR-70-Class-DEMU http://irishrailwaymodeller.com/showthread.php/78-Kirley-s-Projects?p=48753&viewfull=1#post48753 http://irishrailwaymodeller.com/show
  10. Looking good! You're right about the cab being too long. It's also too far back - the GA drawing appears accurate in this respect. Ideally the cab needs cut free, moved forward a little and a bigger slice taken vertically out of the rear. I think the front and rear cab sheets fold up from the floor unit which latter can be trimmed accordingly and the rear, then re-attached. Just cutting away some of the excess length at the back will make a difference (you may want to increase the width of the top, open section of the coal bunker, at the same time, to improve the cross-section). But leavin
  11. Should be there. Per Colm Flanagan, Bleach Green is to be there, too.
  12. Thanks, guys. I've put some more pics in the albums, including some 'boring' shots of various bits for reference purposes, here... http://irishrailwaymodeller.com/album.php?albumid=52 ..and here: http://irishrailwaymodeller.com/album.php?albumid=101 I was a bit disappointed that the engine for the day had been changed from 4 to 131 in the last few days, but being right behind a GNR(I) 4-4-0 that had been brought back to life by the magic of the RPSI, sort of made up for that!
