  1. This a photo courtesy of the Martine Heritage Centre in Rosslare. A car being loaded onto the Saint David in the 1950s. From the Ron O'Rourke collection. You can also see the rail link over the water from the same period in the following link: https://www.gettyimages.co.uk/detail/news-photo/rosslare-harbour-wexford-04-09-53-photograph-by-alexander-news-photo/533285922
  2. I have used https://www.elriwa.de/ Also https://www.aandhmodels.co.uk/ and https://www.scograil.co.uk/
  3. Could anyone help me identify these wagons that were used on the beet trains towards the end of the sugar production in Ireland? The videos I have seen always show them running in rakes of 13. Then can be seen towards the end this video on youtube.
  4. The models look great in grey, have stretched the overdraft and ordered the 2 packs. Would love a third pack in new numbers to complete a longer rake. Any chance guys?
  5. Would be great if there enough numbered variants to make a full rake. The accuracy on these is excellent.
  6. A couple of questions before I empty my account of spare cash 🤔 Can any one tell me what years the bell liners operated and the years of operation for the B&I liners? Also, did the Bell liners operate with a mixture of 20ft and 40ft? Thanks
  7. I'd love four of them. From what I have seen online and when in Wexford station, it's 6 standard to two generators. When I asked in Mark's models some time back they said initially they hoped to produce more standard wagons to complete the sets but it was dependant on the manufacturer inviting them to place an order as part of a larger run they were planning. Be nice to have a few with the newer logo as well.
  8. Hi folks, I am working to put together educational information for the Waterford and Suir Valley Railway. I'm looking for any photos of locos, rolling stock, infrastructure etc that you might have access to. I have been able to find some online but knowing the expertise on here I hope there may by some gems hidden in your photos archives or history books you can direct me to. As part of our function as a heritage charity we hope to develop the history available on the website and create a fuller exhibition to host in different locations. Any help would be really appreciated.
  9. I would love to see bubble cement vans and beet vans done in sets of five or more, perhaps including a guards van appropriate to era / livery. A set of prototypical log wagons would also be great. Would anyone be interested in trying to commission these from Hattons or directly from Bachmann or has this been tried?
  10. The photograph elsewhere on this site suggests the lighter version is more accurate than the darker one shown on the mk3s http://irishrailwaymodeller.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=16042&d=1417187940 Does seem a very big difference between the Orange of the locos and that of the mk2 super train but hard to judge until seen side by side.
  11. For an example of the Galway livery, I came across this nice little video on youtube. May be of use. Is there any news of whether the standard will be released?
  12. I see your point Dave but if I knew the standards would be available to complete the sets I would invest in two twin packs but without them I would not make sense. As funds are ( very ) tight I would sooner save for a set I can complete. Thanks for all the info guys.
  13. Can anyone advise me on the standard composition of the auto ballast wagons? From what I have seen they seem to be either : 1 powered unit and 5 standard units or 2 powered units (one each end) and 6 standard units. Is this the case? Also I believe Marksmodels are hoping to release the standard units separately to complete the sets.
  14. Thanks Scahalane and Dave. Have also seen a class 201 pulling a set with no logos. Hard to know what to try and model.
