  1. Arrived yesterday to the US. they look awesome
  2. I would state avoid USPS like the plague, between them loosing packages that were supposed to arrive at my local post office that "disappeared" also you cannot trust them for your bills as they also manage to loose them also. So many bad experiences with them.. DHL and UPS, never an issue with
  3. I thought it was just me, I too have delivery issues as the only tracking number I have it for USPS. it seems to be heading for the nearby DHL facility for Chicago area but as I don't have a DHL tracking number there is nothing I can do. USPS are waiting for this since the 6th of June, so I have no idea where it is and to top it off, I have a great experience with USPS and packages "failing to arrive". Just frustrated that USPS are to deliver them, well hopefully.
  4. Don't get me wrong, I know there are nice people living in areas like Moyross, I would also love to see things get turned around there. It would be lovely to walk down any area of the city and feel safe, sorry to say that is not the case for all areas. It would be fantastic if the station went there and it helped things for the community, hence why I am looking with interest to see what happens.
  5. Interesting to see what happens with this, even though Moyross is one of the places in Limerick, I would avoid going to.
  6. Awesome and they had the RPSI cravens I was like hunting for a while.
  7. Thanks sir, I looked but I thought there was an issue with the site.
  8. Can someone please let me know what the opening hours are for Mark's Models for the Cork store? I reached out about a day ago by message on facebook but I have not gotten a reply from them yet. I am trying to plan for a vacation and looking to see if I can pop into that store and see what they have in stock.
  9. Damn... if only it was a week later, I may have been able to go there while I am visiting the homeland.
  10. I contacted Rails about this and they said it may take several weeks for them to complete the process from Hattons. They told me they will be reaching out to those to placed pre-orders for them. So we wait a little more....
  11. Has Rails made up with Hornby or something? https://railsofsheffield.com/collections/hornby
  12. @WRENNEIRE @Noel Merry Christmas to you and to everyone on here. I hope everyone has a enjoyable day.
  13. They also had MM5217, by the time I hopped on there, drat, gone.
  14. Rails have also put them on their website, https://railsofsheffield.com/collections/murphy-models
  15. https://www.thedrive.com/news/watch-the-retired-big-boy-steam-train-rescue-a-stalled-freight-train-in-nebraska Pretty cool to have a Big Boy come to the rescue of a freight train
