  1. He always has trains for sale, some hang around, some dont
  2. Or even better again Halfords Plastic Primer
  3. Thats it, a response to Hornbys Zero 1, both a little ahead of their time ultimately. Technology has caught up with Digital control now
  4. Well dont forget, there are a lot of newcomers to the model railway hobby, who may get confused that 2 products are in the same colour box, ever notice all the mainstream manufacturers use different colour boxes? Or is that too advanced for you
  5. I knew I'd seen that box style before, could you not have chosen a different colour........
  6. Unlikely given FCC didnt help any of the groups who approached when the initial fry model railway was closed.
  7. Anyone feeling brave? https://www.rte.ie/news/business/2021/0630/1232254-search-begins-for-new-operator-for-dublin-attractions/
  8. Ok What do you want. Tell us. Be blunt. Be honest. Be frank. What do you want that is good enough. All you seem to do here is whinge and complain so why is this one any different. Maybe this interest is not for you as clearly it upsets you. 10 years ago even all you had was the vintage MIR resin kits for these and other stuff, people used to say 'wouldn't it be great if someone made them ready to run and affordable' - that is now here from an Irish company that is rapidly growing in terms of good reputation and presence and you still moan. Good oul Ireland - a nation of whingers, begrudgers and backstabbers. Thankfully in the minority.
  9. For this I'm going to go with Black and Tan onwards. I've also added MK2A/Mk3 stock as 121's are 'Suitable for hauling Air Braked Trains' Never seen a pair of 121's on the Taras either, mainly as a pair were too long for the traverser at Alexandra Road. Waiting for a photo if it did happen. Real 'badly stuck' stuff Livery Key - there was no 'Supertrain with IR Logo' for the 121's unless I can be photographically proved wrong.....

  10. No fault but their own there. Also more fiddling going on than the local ceili band
  11. Unmade Silver Fox A Class (Rebuilt Version), complete kit with glazing, bogie side frames and Studio Scale Models Etched Brass Detailing fret €50 ono,can post at buyers expense
  12. No, they were all about bare minimum spending initially. Then again there was never any overnight work so no need for the sleeper cabs No Dump Truck??
  13. Its 1.72, they also do the Mercedes NG, Foden Haulmaster, DAF 2800 and Ford Transcontinental http://www.knightwing.co.uk/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?next=0&cart_id=1619513763.318&product=OO-HO_Road_Transport_Kits they are the ex KeilKraft range, dont put them near any 1/76.2 items and they are ok Also the Road Transport Images range of resin/whitemetal OO scale kits, a very comprehensive range, but some of them could be better lookswise. Also the ERF EC they do, rare but not impossible back then
  14. Have ordered several times, received quickly and for the latest one post Brexit, no extra charges
  15. Yes, Irish Cement was heavily pushed as a brand from the mid 80's onwards so it definitely would have featured as the Bubbles were overhauled instead of the 'CIE Bulk Cement' branding, even when the Bubbles were at the end of their lives there was at least one with CIE Bulk Cement branding under the caked on cement Supertrain with IR is an interim livery, from 1987 there was a push to get rid of the 'Broken Circle' logo as quickly as possible (on passenger trains and stations at least), even though there are still signs in certain places with the CIE logo today. Still plenty of freight then, so more Locos were needed instead of being set aside for new paint The IR logo lasted a relatively short 7 years, 1987-1994, as the company fancied a rebrand with the massive investment which brought the 201's,2600 railcars and lots of infrastructure renewal and upgrades, hence the IE Fork logo
  16. Easier to post THE SITE WILL BE BROKEN ON SATURDAY NIGHT
  17. They also were used on the Enterprise then too, right up until the early 90's. Frequently heard their distinctive roar in the distance as they headed through Portmarnock
  18. Never said 'Full IR' Supertrain with IR logos (IRM 007/056) was an interim livery, best worn by 047, but also by 141/181's, 156 wearing it the longest. 047 was a special loco, never broke down, so never repainted... IR - Irish Rail (IRM 017, 036, 048 and 054) is the fully lined version from 1987 onwards following the breakup of CIE into business sector's. Was never referred to as 'tippex' livery either back then. Not every loco had the dayglo panels either, they lost effectiveness quickly when they got dirty Re Ammonia, Supertrain, Supertrain with IR logos and IR. Ammonia started in 1978
  19. Need photographic proof ,they were not common on passenger work in their final year.

  21. I'd almost say anything IE Branded is too new, IE logo came in just as the A's were finishing up, so no IE MK2D's or the MK2A's either which were air braked only
  22. Bet you it wont, the collectors market will still remain buoyant
  23. Well, look at the equivalents from Hornby and Lima at the time, they were not much better. Makes you appreciate everything available now that little bit more. Only the likes of Fleischmann and Roco was of a high level then, and a price to match
