  • 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. More detail added to depot shed and track is now "rusted" and ballast weathered:
  2. The new set-up looks like it is well worth a visit!
  3. Progress on track ballasting and concrete apron around engine shed:
  4. The 201s only got to Supertrain livery and spent their final days hauling ancient AEC stock on the then soon-to-be DART lines and to/from Maynooth asfaik.
  5. The 121 will have a sugar cube supplied as standard fitted facing into the open grille area. All you have to do to convert to DCC with/without sound is fit the 21-pin decoder.
  6. Paddy's DCC and DCC sound chips will match the PCB fitted so I don't think other chips will provide the functionality without re-programming.
  7. Started work on a Timber Tracks Signal Box kit to adorn Buffers Lock! The kit is presented as well as the others described above with good instructions and well fitting parts each group of which are supplied in separate bags for ease of identification.
  8. Working on adding a "concrete" apron around the depot shed using mounting card glued together with contact adhesive and stuck in place using PVA (which enables the card to be lifted without damage if ever the need arises). Also completed adding plastic strip to the shed and started painting it.
  9. Good progress on assembling the cattle dock now ready for painting (OO model pictured for size comparison):
  10. Starting work on the O gauge Cattle Dock from Timber Tracks. A simpler kit overall, nicely presented with parts in individual bags:
