  1. G601 class locos were supplied for lightly used branchlines (Newmarket, Castleisland etc.) rather than as shunting locomotives. Looking forward to visiting the museum.
  2. Damn, I thought from the thread title it was current news! 😎
  3. Ultra rare survivor from the narrow gauge Cork, Blackrock & Passage Railway dated 1910. 17 inches high x 20" wide. Shows timetables for the railway plus linking Cork Harbour ferry services. In good condition and would look superb framed. Offers in the region of €100 including p+p on the island of Ireland. More/better photographs can be provided if needed.
  4. A once in a lifetime chance to buy a unique Cork, Blackrock & Passage Locomotive electric 00 gauge locomotive built by Leinster Models (Ciaran & Gerry McGowan) in 1989 for Cahir Railway Museum. Highly detailed model just under 9 inches long and was hardly used before being put into storage in 1993. The only wear is slight paint loss on edge of frame - see photograph - and the wheels could do with a clean. The Fry Model Railway Museum were so impressed with this model that they commissioned an identical one for the museum. It cost £400 IR in 1989 and is on offer here for just €300. Payment by PayPal and can be delivered to Connolly Station FREE of charge or sent by registered post at buyer's expense. Will be on eBay come January.
  5. Is this a joke? What has happened to the massive layout from the original museum? This 'new' Fry Model Railway looks no different to what one might see at one of the annual model exhibitions? The viewing area (?) appears tiny.
  6. I've sold one of the maps and have one last one which I would like to sell before Christmas hence this bargain offer - €70 for the map (above) together with the Cavan & Leitrim map - see my other post. I also have six volumes of the Vice Regal report looking for a home. Can be collected from Enniscorthy or dropped to Dublin for collection near Connolly.
  7. I remember seeing CIE bogie carriages with pigeons on the Rosslare line in the early 1970s. Can't be more specific I'm afraid as I wasn't an enthusiast at the time.
  8. Just over 12" x 12" - rare item for the serious Irish Narrow Gauge enthusiast. In excellent condition. €35 includes p+p by insured mail or can be collected from Enniscorthy.
  9. An opportunity to acquire a rare and very fine map from 1907 Vice Regal Report into Irish Railways. Large 36" x 24". The various railway companies all highlighted in different colours. Has been folded for over 100 years and doesn't appear to been opened during that time but there's some barely noticeable damage at a couple of the fold corners. These would not be a problem when framed as the map would have to be . €60 including p+p on the island of Ireland.
  10. Two scarce UTA laminated pocket calendars in excellent condition. The calendars feature paintings by Costelloe. €20 including p+p.

    A great shop for Airfix soldiers and stacked from floor to ceiling with exciting goodies for boys of all ages. I also brought my first SLR there on the 14th June 1982 and christened it the next day on my first trip on the North Kerry weedspraying train.
  12. Agree completely - apart from the GSWR, the T+D and also the Waterford, Dungarvan & Lismore are the only genuine ones that I know of. The WDLR ones were still in situ on that line long after closure and several passed through my hands. Sadly they are also now being forged.
  13. Here's another one coming up for sale in a general auction. What company is it supposed to be from?
  14. The 'new' West Clare Railway is very much the hijacked dream of one man - not the present operator - and is destined to go the same way as Blennerville. The recent Tripadvisor review below is typical of many that have appeared over the years. The present operator listens to nobody and that will be his undoing.

  15. Spotted this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ANTIQUE-STYLE-IRISH-N-W-R-R-RAILWAY-NOTICE-NEWRY-WARRENPOINT-ROSTREVOR/143373840268?hash=item2161bf2f8c:g:QNIAAOSwZH1dbQP8 more intriguing one on eBay tonight. It's the wear/marks etc. on the back that I find interesting but I suspect, as usual. someone has been at it. What does anybody else think? The Newry, Warrenpoint & Rostrevor Railway did exist but...
