  1. I'd be interested in a re-run of D Atlanteans myself
  2. It is awesome and there's a lot involved. I read through the link last night and not having any real knowledge of 3D printing there was a lot to get my head around. As you said in your post, it looks like they have adopted the technique of printing the chairs directly and sliding them onto C&L bullhead rail, them fitting the rails onto a preprinted base of sleepers with plugs under the chairs press-fitted into preformed holes in the sleepers. The seems to be a lot easier than threading the rails into an entire preformed straight (or certainly a turnout) albeit more time consuming. One limitation they are running into seems to be not having a large enough 3D printer to print larger turnouts as a single piece. Martin Wynne sells these kits commercially for N scale but it wasn't clear whether he was planning a file for 21mm although there was talk of OO. Personally I'd be much happier buying kits from him than printing and slicing chairs and trying to print larger turnouts in sections. One would needs ones own printer and slicer. Maybe someone might do a file for a coach bogies in 21mm that we could use as a drop-in replacement for the existing one on Lima & Murphy models coaching stock.
  3. If you want to sell this you're going to have to change you member signature "A fool and his money are soon..." "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!"
  4. I guess I got a bit confused here also and wasn't expecting a sell out when i returned to the thread today. As long as there are more coming there's no problem in that. It's interesting how the grey 1950s are first to be sold out. It seems like the level of consumer interest in anything in 1950s- grey or BnT (A class) seem to be underestimated. As for boxes, with green and orange in use by other manufacturers, maybe Black with one yellow face and possibly a red buffer beam?
  5. @Colin R Colin, Your second poster, for identification purposes is going to be this one (which is copyrighted to all posters.com) Available from them as a 24" x18" poster which might not accurately equate to the size of the prototype which looks to be more like 3' tall. Not familiar with the one with the shamrock but will post if come across it.
  6. Hi John, Great to see this and well done. Hopefully this goes very well and expands with time. Question regarding preordering and small production batch of say 10 items required for the preorders of that particular wagon to be fulfilled. Will it be possible to see the number of preorders presently existing on a given item so that one might anticipate when the production might run to go ahead? e.g. 8 existing preorders ... if I go ahead and order 2 more wagons it would trigger a production run of that item etc Site looks well. Best of luck with this! K
  7. Maybe a chance for local modeling shops to make a comeback?
  8. NO worries, there'll be a market for them too as they are redistributed around the modeling community
  9. I'm confused, the fan doesn't actually spin? Never mind, someone had one that actually did in an A if I recall about 5 years ago, not sure that it shifted much air through the motor but very cool al the same Wait, they've done coaches for the them? 'Laminates' or PRs?
  10. And the driver's gone on a smoke break again with the Carroll's. You'll never get that A class moving ... However, joking aside, a set of appropriately attired drivers, guards, station master, signalman not all in dayglo would be very useful accessories pack at this point for everyone's locos. Maybe a 1960s, 1980s and 2000s attire would suit all modelers? Sitting and standing passengers too for that matter ......
  11. Best to remember management and governmental attitudes to perfectly good MK3s that don't require any refurbishment (unless they're ready to reintroduce sleepers) and work from there - copyright of @skinner75
  12. OMG! standards are dropping if you don't now. Must be the summer heat ..... Happy to see these ( @connollystn has reached collaborator status from this thread alone )
  13. (excerpt) ...... no longer able to facilitate trains in the area, as ship working must be given priority. Dublin Port said the rail spur will be ripped up in two or three years anyway to facilitate construction work. Read between the rails, so to speak. If Dublin Port is at a pinch point, are there no other ports to use? ........ on an island, like?
  14. I'm tempted to say 2 of each but I forgot what you said the price point was so I'll say at least one of each. Maybe an extra grey. Thinking logically about this for anyone who is purchasing any black A class or earlier the greys are a must, anything with a hint of 'orange', the red oxide and maybe the grey with roundel for that matter
  15. Just purchased a copy from Michael McMahon, should be on this side of the larger pond in a few weeks ....
