  2. It does indeed, just like ttc's model shown in DJ Dangerous's post above.
  3. It sounds like the HOBS running late. Should have been through Malahide at about 21:45.
  4. Murph, pobably a silly question. I can understand why you would build your own turnouts for the scenic areas, but why not use propriatory turnouts for the 'off scene areas' on your layout? Surely that would make life a lot easier and progress a lot quicker.
  5. The AEC railcars were originally fitted with smaller buffers, but I think there were issues with buffer locking. When the new larger buffers were fitted the lamp irons had to be moved inwards to new positions, as lamps mounted on them would have been hidden by the buffers.
  6. Wishing all a very Happy Christmas and all the best for 2021.
  7. Mine also arrived today. Many happy returns to all at IRM and even more success for next year!
  8. The vans were only vacuum braked, not dual braked. The through pipes connected the loco to the air brakes on the wagons, running along the outside of the underframe. The vans were, if I remember correctly, T.L.A.
  9. Noel, yes there is a generator in the weedspray van. Whether or not it is the same one as was in it originally, I'm not sure. Not sure either about heating. Hope this helps.
  10. Came across these signals on Amazon (UK). With a little modification the would seem to be a good representation of the Union Switch & Signal signals used on the DART line and elsewhere on the CIÉ / IR / IÉ system from the early 1980s. https://www.amazon.co.uk/JTD02-Model-Railway-Block-Signals/dp/B07JNB47S8/ref=sr_1_35?dchild=1&qid=1603018892&sr=8-35&srs=18706235031
  11. At the start of 1972 there were 20 C class locomotives still, to some degree, operational. So, while some of these might have been used to shunt members of the Mk IId fleet around Inchicore works, it is most unlikely that any C class hauled these carriages out on the main line. By the time the Mk IId fleet were introduced into traffic, in December 1972, all the C class had been re-engined. The B201 class were, on the other hand, used on service trains composed of Mk IId stock one a regular basis. The attached photo by Barry Carse appeared in the February 2020 edition of the IRRS Journal (V29,
  12. Fulsome thanks to Paddy Murphy for dragging Irish railway modelling up to its current high standards.
