  1. Sounds more like a nightmare...
  2. I know how you feel. Last I dreamt I was eating a giant marshmallow. Woke up and my pillow was gone.
  3. All the way over from Raheny? The lengths that Bracken fella will go to for a free cup of tea....
  4. They're way beyond sainthood. The already sit at the right hand of the father. The father being Paddy Murphy of course...
  5. This months Railway Modeller has a feature about IRM/Accurascale as well as a good interview with the lads. Very interesting read. (And they scrub up well for the photos!)
  6. Congrats on the new HQ! Only up the road from me as well....
  7. Yeah I would think that OO track being underscale would allow a little more room for the bogies to swing anyway.
  8. And I think he should. The negativity towards him on other social media is getting tiresome and I wouldn't blame him one bit.
  9. Just looking at the drawings and the position of the steps at each end, I wonder will this model have trouble on really tight radius curves and points?
  10. I stand corrected! So is "power at rail" synonymous with tractive effort?
  11. Have a look at the Wikipedia page for the BR Class 66. It has detailed stats for tractive effort and since it is a similar model to the 201 it might give you a good indication.
  12. Lads, hats off you all for this piece of design! How you managed to squeeze all these features inside the body and still leave ample room for a good sized speaker is nothing short of miraculous. I know from my Silverfox Kit that it's a nightmare try and fit prototypical lighting inside the A Class and that's before you even try to cram in a PCB, sound decoder and speaker!
  13. I think the operational quirks are what made it interesting for enthusiasts and modellers....
  14. Usually buy all my Kadees from DCKits. They're no cheaper than other retailers but they're fast and always seem to have sufficient stock.
