  1. Thank you for the tag Midland Man, and to JHB for posting that picture of WT No2, it really is the bees kness! With regards to my model, I don't have it now as it was a commission, but I based it off the quote from "UTA in colour". It states that U2 No80 was painted in olive green... What shade? I'm unsure, so I felt that a dark olive green colour would suit best and applied the letters "UT" as they were seen on some engines during the early years of the UTA.
  2. Brilliant find! The "War Years Remembered" Muesum is within the same complex, if you are considering exploring the area!
  3. Now that is very good news! I got one a while back, but struggled to find what I could do with it, apart from spending it in Halfords...
  4. Hello all, I plan to come down to the show on Sunday, making use of the enterprise from Belfast. However can someone please advise me on how to get to the show once I arrive in Dublin? I recall someone said that the DART won't be in operation during those dates. Thank you in advance, Nelson.
  5. I built a representation of these wagons (seen below) a couple of years ago. They are not entirely accurate, but very close. These were straight "Cambrian Models" wagon kits, the exact code, I am unsure of, but still easily obtainable direct from the new owner of the company.
  6. Nice job! Keep at it, looking forward to see future progression!
  7. The tender springs are quite interesting as mentioned by georgeconna. They seem to be missing the supports either side that bring them down onto the tender footplate.

    Hattons sale

    Just incase anyone wasn't aware of this, hattons have a sale ongoing at the moment. https://www.hattons.co.uk/NewsDetail.aspx?id=377 One very good bargain in particular that stuck out to me was the D16/3 at only £55. And there are O gauge Jinty's for around £150
  9. Thank you, it's actually a kit from parkside dundas.
  10. Hello all, thought I would share this. Started it two years ago, but had issues with the running qualities, so recently I took it back out and stripped it down and improved the running. Now I'm happy that its complete and finished. Thanks, Nelson
  11. I wouldn't say the RPSI would get told off too much, after all the driver and fireman are IE employees afterall?
  12. Here's my finished kit, more pictures can be seen on my workbench thread. Nelson
  13. Hello all, I believe this is the first model that I have completed in 2018, started it at the Bangor show and I'm happy to finish it. Still need to add couplings and transfers (I completely forgot about them) thanks, Nelson.
  14. Hello all, Not too sure whether this is going to be successful or not but I am after a OO gauge resin kit of the NIR Hunslet, the body kit or casting will be fine for me, so if anyone has one they are wanting to get rid of, let me know! Thanks in advance, Nelson.
  15. Thank you for the mention, I did indeed create a PG class (number 10) but it was from the GBL series with a Bachmann jinty chassis and new tender one. I do have however a BR black Bachmann one that needs to be done, so it'll be on the workbench soon enough. I've attached these photos as I find them better than the other ones, they give you idea of what's involved, not too much really.
  16. Some really good things to come from Hornby this year, while Bachmann have taken the back seat, but still good none the less.

  17. Oh wow, must check that out now, happy days.
  18. Hello all, I just seen this on FB and thought I would share it. Sad to see it go, I remember waltzing in when Joe used to run the shop and it always provided an excellent service.
  19. Merry Christmas all!!!
