  4. I am all on for this Irish Deltic - why not . Deltic 16 was going around for a while in that crazy purple livery. So IRM get cracking !
  5. Amazing wagons - well done IRM once again
  6. Got my copy on December 27th - the perfect post Christmas present. I knew this was going to be a cracker and it certainly is. This book really sums up how good our railways were not too long ago. The variety we had is all summed up in this superb book. Get it while you can and see in great detail how good our railways used to be. !
  7. Fantastic photos , the 121s look amazing. Well done to MM - Again ! 2020 is going to be some year - 121 & A classes. How times have changed since the Hornby 'Hymek' and the Lima Class 33.
  8. I agree with Noel - Support your local Sherriff. I have bought a lot of my British stuff over the years from Rails and Hattons ( mainly because of the vast choice available ) but all the Irish stuff that I have has been got from Model Shop Belfast, Grahams in Portlaoise ( both regrettably now closed ) and Marks Models. Thanks to MM and IRM we have an amazing selection of quality models and many more to come. We have come along way from my Lima CIE supertrain with the class 33 in the 1970s. We are blessed we still have a great model shop - Marks Models in Dublin and Cork. I know where I will getting my 121s from - regardless of price !
  9. Great video, Wexford 70. Lovely seeing Rosslare Harbour as it was. I arrived there last Sunday and was literally spat out on to the platform to fend for myself. The place is dead now, I do not even bring a camera there anymore. Well done on a superb video.
  10. Edo, just slip them in among the other bubbles ' customs' will never notice the latest ones
  11. Fully agree with you Fishplate. I have got quite a lot of stuff from Tom and I have been very pleased with them. We are blessed that we now have such a variety of quality Irish models.
  12. Fantastic news, a long last . Now I wonder what livery 134 will be in ?

    Totally unexpected knock at the door and I was handed a package. Fantastic. The Taras look amazing. Well done IRM.
  14. Barl, at the rate IRM are producing stuff, I would just forget about the wedding altogether.
  15. Santa popped by this morning and left me 12 bubble wagons. Absolute stunning models. Christmas has arrived in South Dublin on November 17th.
