  1. Would have been double-tracked at that time, too... Here's the track layout from around the time @Midland Man is aiming for: https://bit.ly/2QJNJB1
  2. No breach under the terms of UK Crown Copyright, in addition to the website's own T&Cs.
  3. A closer look... It appears to have side tanks. Possibly one of the 4-4-2Ts that became the 'C2' class in GSR service? A very handsome locomotive.
  4. https://www.forces.net/news/raf-typhoons-intercept-russian-bombers-third-time-week A pair of TU-160 Blackjack strategic bombers this time, so nothing to do with maritime reconnaissance.
  5. They're at it again... https://www.bbc.com/news/amp/uk-scotland-north-east-orkney-shetland-51835335
  6. You need to divide by 76.2, not 76. That makes it 18.83mm (rounded up), which matches P4 gauge. EM leaves a little more room to maneuver, to help with reliable running, etc.

  8. Interesting view from a retired Defence Forces general: "State would need 16 fighter jets for full air defence capability, expert says" https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/state-would-need-16-fighter-jets-for-full-air-defence-capability-expert-says-1.4184846
  9. I was wondering why the bids are still relatively low... then I realised that they're 3ft 6in gauge!
  10. The upper 'wing' always faced forward on steam loco tenders.
  11. MRJ should be available in Eason's on O'Connell St in Dublin. Haven't seen it in their regional outlets, though...
  12. I'm curious as to how the kits came to be named after one of the locomotives, rather than the class designation (MGWR E/GSR J26). Without a doubt these are my favourite Irish tank locomotives - beautiful wee things.
  13. Hi Lucas, Per forum rules, can you please list each item and its price? Thanks!
  14. Fantastic work, Eoin... I do love those wee F Class locos. It's a pity none survived.
