  1. A full respray isn't necessarily needed. This EGV was from the original "bad" batch of Supertrain Mk2d's. I just resprayed the roof and both ends black, then added the white lining which was a decal. Quick and easy job, although the weathering took a little longer.

    Maybe they should install those rising bollards / ramps directly in line with the barriers?

    Unfortunately the cost would considerably outweigh the benefits. But yes, it would be a deterrent and make someone think twice after they have to pick what's left of their engine out of the dashboard. 

    I touched on this previously Kevin, but there didn't seem to be much interest when suggested at the time :D

    A few details added to the beet sampler office to give it some life.


    Excellent stuff Robert. Sometimes just lighting a building is enough to liven up it's appearance and give the illusion that something is going on inside. But to have a detailed interior like this makes all the difference. Top job.

    Personally I'd have liked more of the fleet to have been refurbished and/or reliveried. The image didn't really work having mixed IR/Galway sets

    I'm aware most think the livery was a failure from the beginning and never worked, along with the cost of refurbishing them at the time. To be honest, I'm not particularly interested either way. From a modelling point of view, I like seeing them mixed in a set. It adds a bit of interest in my opinion.

    Hey guys so its been a long time since i updated this thread,a lot of the building stuff has fallen by the way side and with such a healthy array of OO rtr stock on the way i do not know if i will be making anything new in OO for a while.

    that being said I am a few weeks into a new n gauge layout build which was initially intended to be continental. however after seeing the potential of what can be done with Irish n gauge the focus has shifted into building an irish layout with a few suitable items of rolling stock to go along with it.

     so far I have kept things mostly simple. however i do have shapeways stuff and some farish mk3's to refinish with vinyl on the way which will be interesting.

    Good stuff Sean. Your updates always contain something of interest. It's great to see some old school modelling on here.

  8. Ah yes. Another innocent victim of a level crossing in this country. All that signage as you approach, along with the red lights, road markings and not forgetting the big gates bouncing about as they descend. Understandably, It can be quite hard to work out what's up ahead. Gobshite.

  9. Great news all round. Obviously, the stand out model from the announcement has got to be the Mk3 stock. But I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised to see the Galway livreried Mk2d included. Not everyone's cup of tea I know, but for some strange reason I've a soft spot for them.

    Best of luck with the new venture. Any work you have posted here to date has been of a high standard. I'm sure you'll receive plenty of enquiries.
