  1. The 071s were delivered in September 1976 and went into traffic the following year. This makes them 44 years old this year and 40 years old in 2016.
  2. Congrats to all on the award!
  3. Terribly sad news. Anthony was always so friendly and helpful with everyone he dealt with. My thoughts and condolences to his family and friends at this sad time. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
  4. 8118, they were empty on the return journey.
  5. Slight correction on the timeline above JHB: 1 Jan 1945 - the DUTC and the GSR amalgamated to form CIE which was then still a private company, although it was in receipt of state-aid; 1 June 1950 - CIE and the Grand Canal amalgamated the new entity retaining the name CIE. CIE became a nationalised company at this time.
  6. Mine arrived this morning also. Have to agree with Noel's comments above. Fantastic models, probably the best yet! Well done lads.

  9. Hi K801, I haven't found any notes to give me a conclusive answer to your question. I'll keep digging and also put out feelers to see if anyone else has an answer. What era are you talking about?
  10. Following on from an earlier post (British Outline Modelling / Hattons train formation guides / August 2) here are some further examples of train formations on the CIÉ/IR/IÉ and NIR systems. They cover the period from the early 1970s until the early 2000s. I have included the examples from the original post - they are marked with the ¶ symbol: 21/06/1971 ??:??

  11. Railer, the article in the IRRS Journal was 'The Transplant Story' by Barry Carse. It was in Journal 59, October 1972, pages 242-251.
  12. Railer, Barry Carse did a book on the A and C classes, publisehed by Colourpoint, some time ago. Try: Irish Metro-Vick Diesels : Barry Carse : 9781898392156 - Book Depository You might be lucky. Otherwise try Amazon. There was also an article in the IRRS Journal about the re-engining programme. Again thiswas quite a few years ago. If I can turn up the exact Journal No. / date I'll post it here.
  13. Nelson, you will have to make your way to the bus stop on O'Connell Bridge (southbound side). Then take a route 4, 7 or 7A bus to Blackrock College. The stop is almost directly across the road from the main entrance to the college and from there it is a short walk to the exhibition venue. For your return to the city centre, walk to the college's main entrance, turn left and walk along the main road for a short distance until you reach the bus stop. Again, take a 4, 7 or 7A to O'Connell Street and make your way to Connolly.
  14. Knowing Colm and his photographic efforts, this is going to be well worth the wait!
  15. Excellent looking models of these iconic Irish wagons. Another IRM success! Pack A ordered.
