  1. Seems a slight update on Murphy's website
  2. In case anyone is coming to Wisconsin in early July, http://www.internationaltoytrainexpo.org/
  3. 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
  4. Wish she was coming to Illinois... https://www.up.com/heritage/steam/schedule/index.htm
  5. 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.
  6. For the bundle deal, how does one place the order for that? Man I was thinking nah on the slate Grey but man those pics of that livery, has me thinking..

    Project 42 Update

    Hi everyone, I am curious to know anything in relation to pricing. And idea as a rough guess when we can order? I am prepping to place an order for a couple of the A's. My heart is set to get 4 of them as a min but I also am looking to see besides the 121 what else is on the cards for release this year. We are spoilt today for choice and thanks to everyone for all efforts to bring products to the market. If it was mentioned here in the past, I am sorry, been a rough week at work, 8 hours sleep since Monday night and boss told me rest until the morn. Joy world of IT. Mark
  8. I think if Hornby were to go, it would have a huge impact on the hobby. They have produced some lovely models through the years. I for one would hate to see them go under. Besides looking to see what news on models from IRM, I also make sure each year to check out and see what Hornby have on offer when they announce their new releases for the year. Were they technically the first company to have a form of DCC with the Zero 1?
  9. If anyone that missed it and has a chance to view it online and using a VPN (for outside UK), you maybe able to watch it if you missed it, https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m00030wh/james-mays-big-trouble-in-model-britain-episode-1
  10. https://www.ebay.ie/sch/andy13052004/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from= a lot of items here, 141s and 181s and other bits as well as UK
  11. Interesting line on the description, "This is an opportunity to get your hands on a very unusual, highly collectable piece of model locomotive history that appears to be sold out everywhere", Locomotive???
  12. Came across this on facebook, had to find it on youtube.... at Heuston station
  13. Congrats to all at IRM/Accurascale. well done to all.
  14. I would love another run of Ivory with Irish Cement logo but them Slate Greys would look as nice... dying to see what the result is from this one
