  1. Down to the last of their stock, according to their September newsletter. Get them while they have them guys!
  2. I could never quite make my mind up about that livery on that class, but it's really growing on me of late. Very nice.
  3. That's the dogs dangly bits right there.
  4. Keep banging out them oil wagons Robert. The longer you're at it, that theory of yours might bear fruit
  5. Lovely stuff Noel. I've watched many a video of this little beauty working the rails. No surprise, it has reached the Junction
  6. Love this combo. Looking forward to running both in IE livery.
  7. I can still remember the sunday evening when I stumbled upon 141 Class no.156, while rummaging through my dad's collection back in 2012. Straight away, it reignited my childhood interest in irish railways, and I haven't looked back since. To see a model so finely detailed, just blew me away at the time, and it has continued since then. The man is a legend, and without doubt has inspired what we see today from IRM. He has topped it off with 121 class, which might be his last, or maybe not. Thank you Mr Murphy.
  8. The coupler looks like it's been on steroids.
  9. Really like that finish in the yard. It captures that slightly rough appearance, with little maintenance, really well. My type of layout. Less is definitely more.
  10. Love it. Always enjoy watching a master at work.
  11. Not a hope. I get enough earache as it is off MrsB about the amount of time I spend in the shed
  12. Strangely enough, 073 and 085 were the first 071 class models I bought when the IR/IE liveries were released. Both are now gone, they were moved on for unweatherd versions, which i hope to tackle myself eventually. Something just never looked right about them to me, but that's just my opinion.
  13. I have to reluctantly admit, that I am a full blown 'rivet counter' (which I receive weekly counselling sessions for). Even so, I think the handrails look fine. Looking at the photos, I think it's more to do with the yellow against the grey which gives the impression they look slightly oversized. Very impressive model overall, roll on the IR IE versions
  14. Definitely seems to be some sort of problem with it Colin. I've been trying since early last week, with no joy.
  15. Another batch of wagons have joined the ever growing queue awaiting weathering on the bench. First up, are my fourteen IRM 42' flats with BELL containers. And along with them, are my ten Tara's. Thought I'd ease myself in. So I've began by painting the green detailing on the bogies, just to dull things down a little. Expected completion date for both projects, September 2025
  16. Yet again Eoin, model engineering at it's best.
  17. I'm not buying it Edo, you've obviously been gotten too, or bribed in some way (it's normally chocolate hobnobs with me). Really like the thinking behind this, nice work.
  18. This is brilliant to see, and I'm sure will be another winner guys. Irish vehicles have always been hard to come across, with very few produced. Oxford have released some lovely stuff over the last few years, at very affordable prices. With a bit of work you can get some decent looking Irish models from their vehicles, but again, its decals, paint and time to get you there. I'm hoping this takes off, this is a great start, it would be fantastic to see a proper selection of Irish vehicles to choose from in the future.
  19. Bring a couple of sleeping bags Edo. You're in for a very long day.
  20. I've spent the last number of weeks working away on this signal box, in between my current projects sitting on the bench. The balcony and steps combo wasn't my cup of tea, so some chopping, sanding and gluing was required. Along with that, I also added lighting and various bits and bobs to the interior. Then, some painting and weathering to finish. Job done.

    Why GM?

    You don't need to be an expert on all things CIE. If something continues to let you down, you look elsewhere. GM had a reputation for reliability, so they took a chance and it worked. The relationship went on from there, the rest is history. Reliability will always save you money long term.
  22. Another outstanding model yet again in my opinion, and another welcome addition to the irish scene. Now, I shall bite my tongue and retreat to a dark corner of the house
  23. Lovely stuff Noel. Don't think I've seen footage taken from that side of the layout before. Station looks class.
