  1. A totally modern station with no personnel, Wifi, Chargers or Toilets!
  2. These are Barytes Wagons with side doors that drop flap to become acces ramps for a bulldozer to empty them out the other side https://www.flickr.com/photos/irishrailwayarchive/51030510502/in/photolist-2k4krku-ronnKi-2kKoGTY-2iG6h8s-2iG7LHc-2iG6gWA-dWibNq-qHtymH-24ejU7L-2kwbLLk-pEtTHF-pWE8Vg-2kwbLF5-2kwfseA/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/152343870@N07/40188564632/in/photolist-2k4krku-ronnKi-2kKoGTY-2iG6h8s-2iG7LHc-2iG6gWA-dWibNq-qHtymH-24ejU7L-2kwbLLk-pEtTHF-pWE8Vg-2kwbLF5-2kwfseA/
  3. GO have a pint and watch the offspring run the rails
  4. This is the world as it is now, empowerment of the gombeen without culpability or recourse. Revolutions have occurred for less
  5. The entire train is 1950s stock including the converted brake genie if I'm not mistaken, seen here late 70s. They persisted in BnT for quite some time
  6. You'd think it would be a little bigger than Z scale....
  7. Thanks for the info on the cars. Before my time, maybe more my parents era but used to hear my dad talk about them. I often wish there was a forum on Irish cars so that we could find appropriate vehicles to go with older layouts in particular (even if most of them will have British plate on.
  8. True, the only difference being that stops had to be requested at a Halt iirc. Hopefully you don't need to hitch a ride from the approaching train. A lot of platform looks almost enough for a 12 car set as I cannot see the near side. Tweets don't seem to universally support it (even longer journey times)
  9. Well it's a Void Meter of course (slight typo in the post)
  10. Used by PW to detect a 'void' under the rail in need of ballast, amount depending on the amount of deflection of the needle as the traffic passes over the rail. Would have no use now with such heavily ballasted track and more modern electronic assessment of rail/ballast integrity I would think.
  11. That has been said repeatedly about the models and I'd say IRM's success has more than once proven that point. However, it's not going to happen with an assessment of there being 'handful' of interested 21mm gauge modelers that are seemingly those more adept at modeling. In that train of thought, they rest of us would benefit having rtr 21mm track. It's a shame really that Irish modeling will for the majority remain stuck on British outline track but I suppose that's life.
  12. Noel, is there a series of these intended on different lines and if so which ones and over the same time period?
  13. 1972.... Incontrovertible evidence of red springs in Mk2s in as delivered condition https://www.flickr.com/photos/152343870@N07/49629548148/in/faves-77496544@N07/ @Lough Erne If you have any photos of the Cravens plea share and thanks for your post above
  14. and the signage on the warehouse advertising asbestos slates!... another time
