  • 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. The threesome of NIR big GM's has been on there some little while now, so snapped up is probably putting it a bit generously. Stephen
  2. Aren’t there plans for a new station at Waterford on the Rosslare side of the existing one? Stephen
  3. The annual show put on by DEMU, Diesel and Electric Modellers United. Stephne
  4. I came across recently. Does anyone have a photo showing the other side, please? https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=gsr+pullman+coaches&client=safari&hl=en-gb&prmd=sinv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjwv7CukpjiAhVQxIUKHVxoATkQ_AUoAnoECAwQAw&biw=1024&bih=666#imgrc=G6U9uJkCWjfkKM Stephen

    CMAT 2040

    Some good stuff proposed. Two points to clarify: 1) The electrification would be as per DART in terms of voltage, and 2) The light rail would be as per LUAS in terms of gauge. Stephen
  6. Coming on in leaps and bounds. Stephen
  7. Looking very impressive. Stephen

    A Gaggle of J15s

    The Dean goods was very similar in that it was a simple design that worked very well. They outshone some of the very latest designs during tests undertaken by BR. Even the uptodate versions, J15a and J15b, failed to shine compared to their earlier siblings. Steohen
  9. The 3d printed ballast wagon body is a fair representation of the real thing, save for being too tall. For greater accuracy you need to take a horizontal section out of the body, at a guess something like 4mm. The same is true of the IFM magnesite wagons. I’ll have to do the same to them sometime in the future. Stephen
  10. People must be keen to pay those sorts of prices. Stephen
  11. Definitely looks interesting with track laid. Stephen
  12. Some good stuff there JHB, in particular the Youghal trains. Stephen
  13. Looks interesting. Stephen
