  1. Has anyone seen the results yet for this year's awards?
  2. @Warbonnet dude, any idea on quantities of each for the A class? With the 121's coming out, and I have to get an order in for the ferts, I would like to add if I can to my order for the A class
  3. Anything there in the way of Peugeot? Are you looking to sell?
  4. Done, good luck to Accurascale and wondered why IRM is not listed as a manufacturer? For sure you have set the standards higher and it would be nice to get recognition for all the hard work that ye do.
  5. A couple of pictures of Big Boy.
  6. I have noticed that while trying to view some of my older orders on IRM, that the items details for what was on that order, is missing. It seems to have for orders that were placed before 2019. I am only wondering if this is to be expected or if there is going to be a fix for i?
  7. Did the 46% Nitrogen (Urea) bag pallets have more in weight than the normal bags like the 10-10-20 and the 0-7-30? I remember as a teen them having more weight per bag, and also the pallets may have been a little bigger than the normal ones? If there is an option for pallets, would these be considered? I am not sure who produced them, something tells me it may have been IFI. Did the ferts also transport the huge bags? There was 4 of them on a pallet as well as an option other than the smaller bags. There was another bigger bag option available to farmer that was also on a pallet, specifically in the 90s
  8. As the Chicago area is popular enough for Irish to visit, an interesting development I noticed on the Big Boy tour is coming to the Chicagoland area, so I will be trying to pop up to see her in all her glory in July: https://www.up.com/heritage/steam/schedule/index.htm In case by any chance anyone else will be in the Chicagoland area about the 27th of July, is when she will be about 45 minutes west of O'Hare airport. It seems to be furthest east that she will be coming as after the few days she is in this area, she seems to be making her way west again.
  9. I would be interested in getting a few myself as I would like to add to my stock but with the 121 coming this year and I still wanna order more A class locos, it's a rough year for the credit cards but for the models coming out, for sure is exciting.
  10. Seems a slight update on Murphy's website
  11. In case anyone is coming to Wisconsin in early July, http://www.internationaltoytrainexpo.org/
  12. Is it possible to run it in DC rather than DCC as a test? If it does not run correctly in DC then it will not work correctly with a DCC decoder in it, that should tell you if the decoder or the loco is at fault
  13. Wish she was coming to Illinois... https://www.up.com/heritage/steam/schedule/index.htm
  14. It is not right, he has done so much for the Irish RTR market with his fantastic models, I am thankful for all his efforts and also anyone that is able to bring Irish RTR models to the market. I bet it is a lot more difficult than what people may think. Without him we would not have had the fantastic baby GMs, 201s, 071s, cravens and mk2s and the upcoming 121's give the man a break.
