  1. It certainly is a milestone worth savoring, I'm not seriously whinging about new stuff before the A's have even landed, I'm just having fun adding to the running joke about updates on this thread
  2. No news for a few hours, are the second run of A's nearly in Irish airspace yet??
  3. This is how I remember them! Yellow door with the red diamond and the lovely teal stripe up the side. Was this an NIR livery or Translink? Or both? I remember seeing them with the NIR logo but also remember seeing translink stickers on the side
  4. I cant wait to order a set of these stage but depending what else gets announced over the next year I might end up getting three packs because i really want the DVT, a generator and a grill haha. That said my layout is literally only a single loop oval so a 9 carriage train would end up with the arse end and front end coupled together
  5. I know they are probably all different stages of development but was there timescales for announcements? i remember seeing on another post that there would be 'multiple announcements coming soon'
  6. So I should wait to see if any Hunslets are announced or IE livery mk2s to run with my A class 054 then? Also are these mk2s the 'gatwick set' I see mention of or were they different? I think the ones above are before my time as I remember seeing trains with teal striping, not yellow. Perhaps that was early Translink livery though. It was around the turn of the century, I remember vividly sitting in burger king in yorkgate before going to the cinema, watching the trains thunder past with lovely yellow ends with red diamonds, and they definitely had teal lining with the blue and grey
  7. Which of the A-class liveries ran with which of these coach liveries?
  8. Absolutely!! RRP sounds good for the irish 3 pack and at least then you get a ready to go rake instead of having to pay some tom dick and/or harry £300 for a ten year old coach!!
  9. Gorgeous! I'm absolutely sold on the close coupling/gangway gap thing. Massive gaps have always bothered me so these look wonderful! Now I'm looking at my old hornby mk2s all half painted wondering if I should finish them or just send them for scrap and get these new ones instead To be fair though my ones are being painted orange, so these new NIR ones wont clash with it
  10. My wildly silly/hopeful guess is a range of GNRi Class V's
  11. Ooooh exciting! Mk2s and 3s are great, but it would be awesome to see some other coach types being represented 6 wheel bangers in a variety of liveries from north and south like the Irish version of Hattons Genesis? "IRM Tús" perhaps?
  12. Perhaps a plethora of oo9 stock and loco to run a model of the Guiness brewery railway? Perhaps a plethora of oo9 stock and loco to run a model of the Guiness brewery railway?
  13. i know you folks are probably bored hearing about requests/suggestions by this point but given the similarities.. would a C class be in the works after? Any excuse for an NIR livery haha
  14. If yis are taking requests like a DJ at a wedding I'll take some pics of the day-glo panelled 90s rave loco's please due to the mould line I'm guessing plastic, but to be fair it looks like they could easily be replaced with a wire one if you wanted to
