  1. Got these beauties from Marks Models yesterday......oh my giddy aunt. ill spend this evening figuring out how to get a consist working.
  2. After I purchase some 121's and replenish funds, I want to try get some Irish Rail autoballasters. Im leaning towards getting the bachmann version and getting them resprayed. What are the best to get that are most IR prototypical? does anybody have any guidance on who would do respraying? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
  3. speaking of liveries, is it possible to see what the Murphy Models 121 liveries will be? if possible are there any pre-production pictures, not the CAD models.
  4. I have 4 empty hornby train set boxes, i'll give them away for free, but collection only, im based in Kilkenny. The boxes are: The Blue Pullman R1093, no internal polystyrene, box ends a bit shabby City Freight R1092, internal polystryene intact and in good condition, box ends a bit shabby Goods Master R1070, internal polystyrene intact and in good condition, box ends a bit shabby Irish Freight R1020, internal polystrene intact and in good condition, box partially torn and ends shabby. Owners manual and catalogue included.
  5. Noel, brilliant stuff, for a novice like me its great to see how stuff is done. Hope to see more photos soon
  6. Thanks for the info Noel, the hornby controller is the R965, it says on the top the output is 16V. As I said in the first post, this is a temporary layout, which is dismantled and reassembled 3 or 4 times a year. Prior to this every thing worked fine with all the same constitutent parts
  7. I'm having a problem with getting point motors to work. I have surface mounted point motors connected to lever switches R044 (all hornby), all powered from DC off a bog standard hornby transformer. Plug it in, all work fine, once, then all dead, not even a buzz. I have to unplug it for a while before trying again and getting one go again before they die. All the wiring is good and properly connected, nothing touching, the transformer is fine as I connected it to the track and ran a loco. Its a temporary layout and everything worked fine before. Any ideas?
  8. Anybody have any updates on when the 121's might hit the shelves?
  9. Can anybody give a bit of direction relating to track codes. I currently have hornby track, but im looking at getting some Peco (threeway turnouts, double slips). How do the various Peco codes relate to hornby track in terms of rail height?
  10. thats one very understanding girl friend;) neither wifey or the GF bought me anything train related for Xmas:dig:
