  • Biography
    I returned railway modelling in 2002 by joining the Wexford MRC. I have made a large collection of Irish rolling stock eventually developing Ballybeg an Irish outline home/exhibition layout in OO. This has been exhibited at 10 exhibitions winning Best Scenic and Best in Show prizes in Wexford. I developed Llangollen in N gauge a UK outline "restored" railway based on the prototype in NE Wales which has been shown 9 times (including at Bala, N Wales) winning a Best Scenic Award in Wexford. Shunters Yard is a OO GWR compact layout and has been shown three times. Cynwyd in N is based on another Llangollen line prototype station. It has been shown three times winning prizes Best N Gauge in Wexford and Best Layout Scenery at SDMRC. My latest layout is Llanuwchllyn in N (another Llangollen line prototype station) which made its exhibition debut at Bala, Wales and Belfast in 2018. I have started another compact OO gauge layout Diesel Depot which can show Irish or BR outline locomotives. Plans are also afoot to develop a small O Gauge exhibition layout in time!

  1. Diesel Depot is remotely controlled by the Roco/Fleischmann Z21 DCC system via a tablet allowing the locos to be controlled on one half of the screen and the points/turnouts on the other. This means that the layout can be controlled from the front enabling better interaction with visitors at exhibitions!

  4. I used more than 20 Alphagraphix kits for my "Ballybeg" layout in OO. The wagon kits work well too in this scale.
  5. or Glenfarne (based on Alphagraphix kit?)...
  6. Headhunters Barber Shop and Railway Museum is situated on Darling Street in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh just around the corner from the Cathedral Hall where Erne MRC hold their annual exhibition. The museum has been mentioned in posts on IRM previously but I thought I would share a few photos of some of the huge collection of material which is beautifully presented in this building. Well worth a visit if you are ever at the exhibition or in the area.
  7. A couple of views from around the show:
