  1. Just a further update on the SDMRC show over the Halloween weekend, there will be a vintage shuttle bus service between Blackrock College and the Dun Laoghaire Harbour Rally over the weekend starting at 13.00 hrs from Dun Laoghaire to outside Blackrock College on the Rock Road, the service will be 13.30 hrs from Blackrock to Dun Laoghaire. This is for Saturday and Sunday; Monday to be confirmed. Thanks to our friends at the Dun Laoghaire Harbour Rally for providing the service for what should be a great weekend. Thanks Paul R.
  2. Hi Leslie, Dun Laoghaire station is modeled from the 1980's it was built as a request from CIE to launch the first DARTs on the line through Dun Laoghaire - 1984. It has been fully refurbished and will be running some of Eoin Murray's fine new DARTS at the show along with the original kit based models that were built at the time of its first outings. There might even be an Ammonia train or two making its way to Shelton Abbey! Thanks Paul R.

  4. Hi Paul, I will check with Derek and PM you - he is on holidays at the moment. PR
  5. Hi John, Very quiet show overall for both exhibitors and traders alike. Thanks PR
  6. Hi John, Yes - I'm a member of the club and I was at the show I was just confirming what PaulC had asked in an earlier post - that's us- we have our show in Blackrock College in October this year. Best Paul R.
  7. Hi Paul, That would have been Derek from the SDMRC club that you were speaking with as I was operating the layout at the time, we were operating the Belturbet Layout at the show. Kind Regards Paul R.
  8. The layout was built by South Dublin Model Rail Club and we are in the process of refurbishing the entire layout, the darts were modified from fleishman models and they still Exist. The intention is to refurbish using modern techniques and run some of Eoin's excellent models as part of the rolling stock. Thanks PR
  9. Hi Noel, PM if you need any directions or who to contact and yes the website is still up an running - we are also on Facebook too... Best Paul R.
  10. Thanks for the kind comments one and all. The magazine was made possible by the support of our sponsors some of whom are members here to mark the 40th anniversary of the club. Re the lack of refreshments at the show, it has been noted and I will bring it back to the organising team in our club but at this stage I will not promise anything. I must say I enjoyed the show and meeting old friends and making some new ones. Kind regards Paul R.
  11. I will playing trains on 'Lucan South' at the show. Kind regards Paul R.
  12. Well done Stephen and the team - good luck with the new venture. Paul R.
  13. John, I got a 00 version of said cleaner via DCC supplies online It works well for me Thanks Paul R.
  14. Thanks JHB for the warm welcome yesterday at DCDR and the access and wealth on information provided throughout the day , there is a book in that alone. You never cease to amaze me with you wealth of knowledge on all things railway and not just relating to the island of Ireland. Have to agree with Warbonnet the amount of young talent and their entusiasm shows DCDR is in safe hands for future generations. Thanks again for a most enjoyable day. Paul R.
