  1. WMRC will be exhibiting our 'Little Siddington' O gauge layout virtually at the Gauge O Guild's Model Rail Show on the 6th November 2021. This free show takes place from 09:30 to 17:00 on the 6th November, with the recordings available until the 30th November. There will be live Q&A's, chances to meet the exhibitors and 15+ layouts on display for the event. More details on the Gauge O Guild website. We have prepared a short 10-minute video of the layout including narration from some of our members which describes the layout, construction methods and the rolling stock. We will make the video available after the Gauge O Guild show. @DJ DangerousHere's your photoshop.

  3. Thank you too all the visitors and traders that attended the WMRC Open Day today. We had a very good turnout and it was good to see familiar faces again. I came away with a shiny box from the IRM stand too!
  4. I've been away from the workbench all summer, but Connolly Shed will be on display at the Wexford MRC Open Day tomorrow. It's got a new blurb attached. Hope to see some of you there!
  5. Update from WMRC Preparations are well underway for the WMRC Open Day this Sunday. We hope to see lots of you there for this first post-covid model railway show. In line with public health measures that will come into effect this Friday, COVID Certs/proof of vaccination will be checked at the door, face masks must be worn indoors including in the main hall and social distancing should be observed. There will be ample room for social distancing in the hall. The hall opens at 11am on Sunday. Donations will be accepted at the door for WMRC building extension and club funds.
  6. Leave them in the water for longer as Eoin has said, I find that some of the transfers might need a minute or two in the water before they start to move. If you leave them too long they might come off in the water, but you can experiment with that.
  7. Pricey coaches: https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Bachmann-Murphy-Models-34-251Z-34-226Z-34-226Y-CIE-Flying-Snail-Green-Coach-x-3-/144055216360?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276
  8. Thanks, this is the Bachmann class 150. The only alteration that I made was to remove the driver's door on one side, remove the exhaust and remove some of the roof ridges towards either end. I started with black and masked off the lining using 0.5mm tape. I then applied the white, blue, green and yellow ends in that order. Overall I am satisfied with how it came out but there are a significant amount of paint errors to correct.
  9. Currently on the workbench is this paint job which required plenty of masking. There are some areas that have suffered from overspray and poor finish before I hand paint some details and add decals. The lighting circuits will also require some work to get the appropriate headlights.
  10. A big thank you to IRM for taking on this project, and thanks to everyone for the support and interest. I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished product, it will be worth the wait!
  11. Some IR/IE 071s on eBay at the moment: https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Murphy-Models-Class-071-number-080-orange-and-black-tippex-with-small-IR-logo-/124712522011?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276 https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Murphy-Models-Class-071-number-078-orange-and-black-tippex-with-small-IE-logo-/124712515053?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276
  12. Hi everyone, thanks, I am still working on the trackplan taking a lot of these suggestions into consideration. As an aside to that I built this Gaugemaster kit for the cabin on the station. There is some interior detailing and lighting.
  13. They take PayPal according to the contact us page.
  14. Thank you everyone. I forgot to mention that the layout will be set in approximately 2000-2010. Some of the track arrived today. I'll be sure to include catch points, though I don't like the look of the Peco offering as it doesn't match what you see in Ireland. I am considering this, and good to see the example of Longford station, thanks. The yard will likely only be a single track. I'm still working out where would be best to place the crossover points, and placing one or both further down the line is an option. It will be a reach stacker in the yard, though placing the loco siding to the yard side of the layout may be more realistic regarding operations. Sorry! The inspiration is coming from the other end of the country.
