  1. A recent entrant into the world of model railways I was into model tractors and matchbox toys in my childhood and never had a trainset. 

    Initial 'toe in the water' with model trains was with British rail outline stock but then I switched to Irish. Bought my first train stock while working in Leeds in the 1990's.

  7. 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.

  10. Hi John, Very quiet show overall for both exhibitors and traders alike. Thanks PR
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
