  9. Lads ive just opened and tried to run the new r.p.s.i blue craven set, the buffers are catching each other on corners, ive compered them to the buffers on the ie versions and they are Longer on the r.p.s.i ones. this along with the wobbly running makes it hard to run them?
  10. top notch weathering! brilliant really brings them to life
  11. indeed Noel, ever the gentleman i spoke to you in galway in august when you on the belmont, aleast we still have that belmont set and the fabulous cravens out and running.
  12. waiting may not be an option? probably sell out. this will restrict speed on your layout! pity this has happened in the mist of all the excitement!!!!!!
  13. Alot of complaints about the poor running on these coaches.? Is it the wheels? Dissapointing To see this, l ordered a set yesterday, really lovely job all round.
  14. some job done there!, just picture them with a well weathered 121 when they arrive!!!!!

  16. damn, i was going to take the 07-30 ex galway to portarlington and join the tour, she arrives at 09-05 into portarlington, tour is due to arrive at portarlington 09-02- 09-03? 2 minutes, will the tour be spot on time?

  23. it must be the worst ever mistake too let the mark 3 coaches rot away!! a refurbishment would have also saved the distruction of the 201 class loco,s, but i.r are set on getting rid of loco passenger haulage for good.
