  1. While online looking around, I came across a couple of 181s: https://www.adverts.ie/toy-cars-trains-boats-planes/model-train/21947870 https://www.adverts.ie/toy-cars-trains-boats-planes/model-trains/21746232 Cravens: https://www.adverts.ie/toy-cars-trains-boats-planes/4-x-murphy-models-craven-coaches/21841228 https://www.adverts.ie/toy-cars-trains-boats-planes/model-train/21789259 Lima Executives: https://www.adverts.ie/toy-cars-trains-boats-planes/2-x-lima-executive-coaches/21915402
  2. Is there a chance that the link posted by Fran above can get fixed? I am getting to finally having a layout going and as I have an order in, I am thinking of at some point putting kadees on my stock
  3. Hi Fran, How many packs for each will be produced? Thanks in advance, Mark
  4. Wonder how far away is this one from the Murphy Models one - https://www.ebay.com/itm/HO-SCALE-ATHEARN-DIESEL-LOCOMOTIVE-CAN-MOTOR-UPGRADE-KIT/363118877214?hash=item548b925a1e:g:7kcAAOSwk8te5pAk
  5. @Warbonnet I am grateful for the breather as I am trying to catch up with the 121's, I am sorry to hear of the issues with the A class locomotives, it is fantastic that issues are getting corrected at this stage. I have to ask, with the changes in taxes over there, if you get a pre-order now, while the tax is lower, can I correctly assume that since orders taken and paid for before the changes in tax in February (I think when it changes back), will the cost of the loco stay as is it now before they bump it back up?
  6. Any sign of the DCC decoders coming with them?
  7. @DiveController I hope that you are doing ok dude, I am sorry to hear that you had a health issue lately. Take care man
  8. I know that this company local to me ships international - https://www.trainsetsonly.com/ they have no store only a warehouse I think, but they are listed as a dealer for ESU products and it maybe because of Covid-19 that stocks are low, at the moment so it maybe worth keeping an eye on them to see if they get more over the next few months. They did have more items on the website than they have right now
  9. Finally after waiting since my order was dispatched on June 17th timeframe, they finally arrived today. I actually thought I was not getting them.
  10. @Noel Actually since I posted, I did reach out to Wheeltappers and I was advised on the DCC decoders, I will be wanting to get them for my locomotives and I will look at slowly getting them but I am trying to get them here in the US, the issue is that the North American market have a different DCC decoder that is available in Europe and hence I have to get anything in the US re-blown and I can get the files from them. I was trying to see what the difference is as I was provided the part numbers for the European ones but of course, I cannot locate them here in the US. I am still wondering
  11. Cool if they developed a DCC sound decoder for this, support it would require a exact replica to be made of the real one to record the sounds from.. Well they did make a couple of locos in the UK like Tornado so who knows what the future will bring...
  12. @DiveController thanks dude, I was looking at the Peco gauges and I am going to get them, I may have to get them on Amazon but we shall see, must get some track and get a plan together. From what you and Murrayrec have advised, I may stick with going 67mm between the rails.
  13. @DiveController may have a point but this year is the year where I am finally trying to get a layout together. Got my room finished where it is going so I am hoping to get to the store this weekend and get me some plywood. Still one can hope that a Big Boy will arrive...
  14. @Garfield Yeah the Athearn would have been the one that I was targeting but with the 121's and I pulled the trigger on the sound decoders for them, and I want to get a couple of more A classes, plus I am going to try and get sound decoders for them also, and other items as well as trying to get my layout started this weekend, I can't do it this time round, but the Big Boy gets released every few years so I will hopefully then get one at some point. For now, trying to get as much Irish stuff as I can.
  15. Well I was hoping for a Big Boy model this year but it is beyond me, especially at the price for this Trix $1,000 model, but the detail is awesome -
