  1. Seeing the A class sample's on the display cabinet was a treat. With updates galore on IRM/Accurascale. 10 days until all our A class locos are ready to be shipped supposedly!
  2. When i think of interesting station layouts, i always think of killarney, the IR logo station layout!
  3. C226 ITG special edition, all funds going towards the restoration of C226's long restoration project And one for B113 And G601!
  4. If ive learned anything its that buying irish models brand new is a really sound investment
  5. I noticr the wasp design on the roof, i see these the odd time. Were they a short design experiment?
  6. I pre-ordered A30 a few days ago, granted ids say there is a good few of them still around for a while
  7. Well done to all involved! A fantastic achievement for Robert and something that all modellers including some doing English layouts would enjoy. I'll order one for Kinsale junction!
  8. Thats the one. I think the bantry layout thread has one or two of these built from scratch
  9. Some of the grain wagons on thr CBSC were painted in a very nice red for the wood, black for the metal bits and a white lining around the wheels. Granted these were a bit different to what this wagon is, but it was a very spectacular livery. Thats all i can remember from memory!
  10. Would go for 350 euro on ebay for being vintage
  11. They are southern bogey coaches of some description or another. Another thing in the works to make flying snail coaches out of them eventually Eventually there will be. Although i enjoy the idea of one of these being painted like this for an IRRS special!
  12. Meanwhile on the rudimentary Clonakilty junction layout, my west cork freind hass finally finished no.34s decals and front buffer beam along with safter valves ect. I must compliment the job he did of it
  13. I think alphagraphix having a website may pull a few more in, they were impossible to find before and what they actually had in stock was word of mouth and photos of kits built by people such as yourself david. And a gmail floating around was the only way of contacting them. A website makes it far easier to at least get a good view of range/kind of models they are
  14. Look like a decent way of starting out, for only a few pounds too
  15. Question from an absolute novice. What is a card kit. Is it a card overlay or body for an existing chassis or something?
  16. A bandon tank, ivatt 2-4-2, st molaga and argadeen along with CIE coaching stock would do a fantastic job of replicating west cork in itself! I think the J30 is the wrong variant for that time Even for any 7mm modeler, the range is still unbelivable
  17. Great pictures of some of his irish locos on there. I especially like cbcsr stuff obviously, and he has plenty of it!
  18. From what I've read the an "A" did go to Skibbereen and Bantry on one test run, and to Clonakilty on another seperate run. It never got to baltimore due to concerns about Illen bridge and never got on the T&C section for obvious reasons!
  19. I wonder is it cheaper to make steps out of hymek/lima stuff or pure marble!
  20. Exactly....everyone say it with me What do we want.... Green coaches and tin vans! When do we want them.... In the short to medium term!
  21. After the IRM "A" class comes out. There is no doubt in my mind that the "C" class which could be 2-3 years away makes the most sense to do a run of. MM has already elaborated on what he is planning on doing in the next 2-3 years in the realease of those anticipated re-runs like 201s with new liveries ect. So really by the time all that has realsid, I reckon enough time will have passed to look at GM 141/181s again. However there are still designs like the Sulzer diesal, steam loco, G class.....or even a turfburner! That could be looked at before such a re-releasing models that have a decent m
  22. While that be true, old technology becomes cheaper overtime. Making entering said hobby much easier to enter.
