  2. I suppose we have already seen this with Rails and their limited run on their printed vans last year. So its a viable option for sure, maybe the printing suits certain rolling stock.
  3. Guess its back to smuggling and doing the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs in order to raise some funds
  4. Nice alternative to the standard plastic blister packaging. Model is not too bad either.
  5. Thanks for the feedback everyone, suspected as much and C rail would have been first preference but I'm currently in Asia and not too many retailers provide courier deliveries from the UK and the two I use dont stock C Rail. I'll just have to order the C Rails for delivery back to the UK abode and wait to pick them up.
  6. All, Anyone know if the Wathers 40' containers will fit OK on the IRM liners? They are HO scale so not sure what they would look like. Mark
  7. I also had problems with my coaches, one coach had a wheel set missing and two others had mis-aligned wheel sets, not the end of the world but not what you expect either.
  8. Does function 1 still turn the sound on and off?
  9. Thanks to all that have responded, really amazing information here and this gives a much better understanding of the movements at these terminus stations. Food for thought for sure. Mark
  10. Gents, Considering a terminus station in the future layout and just wondering how coach movements were handled in the days before DMU's when coaching stock was still loco hauled. Looking at real life Irish station examples, Limerick, Sligo and Galway would anyone be able to give an insight into how this was managed, whether it was propelled out or there was a station pilot? If points were provided then running around can be done, this could save space on a layout, but using a pilot as I've read and seen on some good youtube videos at UK stations. Another thing I'm just thinking is that a small terminus like Galway would not have had the frequency of train arrival/departures. On pilot duties, what locos could you expect, A class / 121? Regards, Mark
  11. All this talk of sound chips, do we know what type of speaker will be fitted into the loco?
  12. I've started to put my pre-orders in, 124 & 129 pre-orders placed with Hattons, they are quoting £129 initially but if near €200 mark is reached that will be bumped up a few quid. Another pre-order next pay month (The A class pre-order is going to be culled back a bit for now). Mark
  13. Many thanks, I'll drop them a line, as they don't have an online presence this may be the reason why a google doesn't find anything. Mark
  14. Hi all, A couple of years ago I remember reading in a modelling magazine that a company had produced a kit, card I believe, for the Dundalk central signal box. I thought I kept the magazine as it had done a large coverage piece on scenics and buildings, but can I find that specific magazine now among the hundreds of others??? Not a hope. Does anyone know the company I have in mind? Mark
  15. I would certainly be interested in several examples, CIE & IE,
  16. Regarding the sound projects mentioned before, will they be also using the new ESU decoder the Deltic is getting?
  17. Excellent, thank you so much. Mark
  18. Would anyone be able to put an approx date range to each livery in use? Mid 70s - Early 80s would do. Mark
  19. Thanks all, the wheel diameter is 12mm (11.2ish traction inner ) and the axle length is 24.5mm. The wheels mentioned on Peters Spares look the part but he's out of stock. I must ave had a bad QC batch from these coaches, one wheel set missing and on another coach the wheel set was not inserted correctly into the bogie. Mark
  20. All, I mentioned in another MK2 thread a while back about a missing wheel set from one of my new MK2 coaches, the diner coach. I had sent a message to the retailer inquiring about a replacement set (I would have settled for a part number I could source myself), but unfortunately the retailer did not respond. Now that I have the coaches back after weathering I can see what I need as a replacement. SO far the closest I can find as a match is this part from Bachmann. https://railsofsheffield.com/products/5283/bachmann-36-033-oo-gauge-turned-coach-wheels-x10-for-non-close-coupling-bogies- I don't think its an exact match but after a bit of dirt application and when its under the bogie you'd have to be a damn good eagle eye's wheel nerd to spot the difference. Any thoughts an another wheel set that may be a better match? Mark

    MM Supertrain Mk2Ds

    Weathering is coming along nicely, had sent the six coaches and fifteen bubbles so it was a big job, plus the gent is working shifts but I'm in no rush. Here is the generator van, I asked for a good medium dirty weathering application. I think I got exactly what I was looking for. Bubbles also are really good looking. Mark

    MM Supertrain Mk2Ds

    I had sent my six coaches off to get weathered and just got word back from the service provider that one set of wheels is missing from the diner coach. I had only opened two to view and never opened the diner so the delay in finding this out is my own fault. The gent has contacted MM about it for a replacement, but would it also be worth advising the retailer? Anyone else had a similar situation with these or any other MM rolling stock Mark
