  1. Busy times on TJ Noel and as enjoyable as ever. Rich,
  2. The underframe detail in the second clip is truly museum level. It could be a trick of the light in the second clip but is the cooling fan spinning. One of the trains that I have fondest memories of growing up in the eighties and nineties before the GM's took over is an A Class pulling Beet wagons to and from Wellington Bridge, I hope you are taking note men a double height Beet wagon to accompany the A's and to the level of the already released wagons is a must. We need to get you scanned by Modelu in a seated position for the cab Fran with Richie and Pat scanned in measuring the real loco pose to be able to recreate the Downpatrick visit in model form when the measuring and research took place.with A39. Rich,
  3. It looks amazing it screams A Class it runs beautifully. It's such an important part of railway history in the modern era and was the one model that really needed to be produced maybe more so than the GM 201 Class. Can't wait to see a painted example and more of the cab interior. IRM have every reason to be excited as this will set a new standard. Rich,
  4. Votes cast best of luck men. Rich,
  5. Lovely Noel that's what keeps it so interesting the constant traffic and movement. Rich,
  6. I've always felt that the Lima model was the one that captured the look and profile best. It is let down like the Hornby model with the abysmal representation of the corridor connection gangway. The Oxford MK111 as has been said above by Richie is let down by poor profile and the under carriage dimensions are all over the place. However the gangway corridor connector is the best aspect of the model and captures it best of all the models so far released. The Lima can be taken up a level by using Shawplan laserglaze and etched window surrounds. HTH good luck. Rich,

    Class 121

    There are lot's of our members that have a huge knowledge of the class that don't live in Dublin or even in Ireland. The lads in the MRSI have seen it up close and their knowledge of the prototype and modelling is good enough for me. Lots of folks work Saturday too. The photos posted on here and the video Hattons have on youtube of the model running is as good as it gets without handling the sample. Timing was possibly not the greatest time for people neither with prior commitments. I have to say that it looks stunning and can't wait to see a full production sample. Rich,
  8. I don't think that the bogies were out shopped like the Tara and Liner wagons also can't remember seeing the hand wheel painted red. Rich,
  9. Looking very good men and Frans photographic skills are improving everytime he posts new pics. Couldn't see you as paparazzi though man.. Mind you from the way the IRM trajectory is climbing they might be following you guys soon. Watch out for stalkers though. Rich.
  10. I know it has been said before but I love the way TJ is run prototypicaly, a model railway by a railway man. Looking forward to more updates Noel. Rich,
  11. I worked for Irish Rail for a time and remember the Twenty footer used to deliver the post every morning to be collected by An Post. The container had some patches where clean paint was revealed and the photo of the 4 containers Fran posted from the office looks dam close to how I remember seeing that container in Plunkett as mentioned. Rich,
  12. That looks stunning lads thanks for putting in so much hard work and effort to bring these amazing models to fruition. I love that B&I container. I will have to place an extra order. Roll on October. Rich,
  13. This is amazing Noel you are a top all round modeller. Rich,
  14. I'm hopeful that we will be discussing a 47 foot sample in the future. Ooer missus as Frankie Howard would have said. Rich,
