  1. Hi Gareth, The cutout should handle radius two curves as it's a kinematic coupling. Hi Patrick, They will be shipped with one coupling fitted as per photos with the second in the accessory pack for you to install if desired. They just clip into the NEM pocket. Cheers! Fran
  2. Hi everyone, Last, but by no means least, is 048 in IR livery! Order your 048 today: https://irishrailwaymodels.com/collections/a-class-locomotive/availability_pre-order? Cheers! Fran
  3. Hi everyone, 027 in Supertrain is today's treat. No loco wore Supertrain better than the As in my humble opinion! Order yours right here: https://irishrailwaymodels.com/collections/a-class-locomotive/products/027-a-class-locomotive Cheers! Fran
  4. Hi everyone, One delight we have yet to show off is our special edition class leader; A1. We decided to make this one a bit special, with limited edition certificate, 250 pieces and a wooden presentation box. It represents the loco in as delivered condition in 1955 complete with sandboxes. Check it out. Remember, this locomotive is only available via IRM direct and strictly limited to 250 pieces. As we all know, Irish locos tend to appreciate in value, so this represents a great investment opportunity as much as something very special. Reserve yours today: https://irishrailwaymodels.com/collections/a-class-locomotive/products/a1-a-class-locomotive Cheers! Fran
  5. Hi Eamonn, Sure, we were going to do something like that when we did the launch for project 42, but it snowed and we had to cancel! We can certainly look into it again when things are better than they are now, whether it be an event on its own, or part of a show. Cheers! Fran
  6. Hi everyone, No luck so far on the leaderboard but can confirm that the entire A Class run is over 70% sold out now. So, make sure you get your orders in soon! Cheers! Fran
  7. Happy Friday everyone! Our factory sent us this last week showing A Class testing. They test every A Class before packing into their boxes. A Class Factory Testing.mp4
  8. Sans dayglo! The creator of the leaderboard is off for the next 3 weeks, but we will see if we can rustle something up! Basically, everything is a lot more sold than before...
  9. Nope. We don't compete with first class products and the resin Van Hool is certainly that. There were a few runs of the KD Bombardiers and the Standard D Atlanteans from the same stable, so imagine it will be the same for the Van Hools.
  10. Hi everyone, Todays visual feast is IR with no dayglo panels! We'll have more reveals of the outstanding A1, Supertrain and IR locos in the coming days, not to mention some video content and more. In the meantime the As have been shifting at a mighty rate since we begun revealing the decorated samples. Don't miss out on that livery variant you fancy, because once they're gone, they're gone as Homestore and More says! https://irishrailwaymodels.com/collections/a-class-locomotive Cheers! Fran
  11. I've talked to the producer of these and asked if he could post about them here in future too. I'm sure there will be further runs of the Van Hools so you wont miss out. I hope there will be anyway as I missed out myself...
  12. Sand boxes didn’t last too long and our model of A30 is modelled from a pic which shows them removed while in silver livery.
  13. I must be in a minority thinking the As looked better than their GM counterparts so...
  14. Well, going through these samples we have asked the factory to make several corrections to make them acceptable. They are currently working on this but it will take another 2 weeks to finish, after that they head our way so will now land with us in late August. We're probably getting very pedantic at this stage, but we just want them to be the very best they can be. So, now for one variant which we reckon will be super popular; IR with dayglo panels... 036 And 054 One thing we missed on the initial design and tooling for the As was the cut out for the fuel gauge along the side, which many members of the class including 036 and 054 gained later in life. As you can see, we went back and corrected this to ensure we offer a clean sweep of A variants. These are endangered species, with 054 already sold out. So, if you want to get 036 for some dayglo loveliness, don't hang about! https://irishrailwaymodels.com/collections/a-class-locomotive/availability_pre-order? Cheers! Fran
