  • Biography
    I am a 64 year old Englishman who has long found Irish railways fascinating because of both their similarity to and difference from the railways in the UK. Save for the fact that my younger son's father-in-law came from Dundalk, I have no connections with Ireland whatsoever. I do, however, have the same birthday as the republic. That's probably where my interest comes from!


  • Location
    Wychavon (South Worcestershire)


  • Interests
    Railways (full size and model), cats (Siamese and Bengal), American oval racing, Sunderland AFC


  • Occupation
    Retired Chartered Engineer

  1. Patrick The link throws up photos of a good many covered vans that are highly model-able in this day and age. Keep up the good work. Stephen

    Murphy Models have a full page ad in the current issue of BRM and quote dates slightly earlier than in Dave’s post. They will be greatly welcomed whenever they come. Stephen
  3. We live in interesting times. First of all industrial tank engines and now 4w/6w coaches. Stephen
  4. They’ll be on my shopping list as well. Stephen
  5. There is some good news for the stretch to Midleton. In the transport plan for Cork, it is proposed for doubling. I do agree, though, that once an alternative use has been found for a closed railway, re-opening is fraught with difficulties. The Bodmin and Wenford are finding just this with their proposal to re-open from Boscarne Junction to Wadebridge. Stephen
  6. I am trying to put together a representative Bell Line container train. Unfortunately, the c-rail 20’ 0” version is in very short supply in the UK. Does anyone have any that they don’t need anymore? Many thanks. Stephen
  7. Just found this https://www.imdb.com/videoplayer/vi1542102297. What a gem. Stephen
  8. I thought it might be something like that. It is interesting that here is a home signal at the Bandon end of the branch, which would allow for trains from the branch to run towards Bandon without going onto the main line. Many thanks. Stephen
  9. At the Bandon end of the former station there was a loop on the down side. Can anyone say what this was used for, as it was not signalled as a running line? Many thanks. Stephen
  10. The demand is there so how are we going to get Roderick Bruce to do a second run? Stephen
  11. You’ve been very unlucky to get caught so many times by this scam. You poor thing. Stephen
  12. Thanks for that Noel. Some interesting results there. Stephen
  13. The Roger Joanes collection is rather fine, both Ireland and the UK Stephen
  14. My attempt to view the results were met with a request to join the group! What’s the next step? Stephen

    Can’t wait to get my hands on one, or four. Stephen
