  1. Plus there was a period between the 70’s dying and the 450’s being in full service that I would imagine anything goes as long as it moved!
  2. Thanks so much lads for the positive feedback. Much appreciated.
  3. Big GM 084 departs with the fertiliser working which will soon be in the hands of the A class!!
  4. Will the modified bogies be available to buy separately at some point in the future?
  5. Thanks. Did you specialise in managing debt collection agencies in a previous career?
  6. Some Friday evening action from Ballyercall. It’s great to be running again after the summer break.
  7. North of the 49. Thanks for the positive feedback. Big Blue is supplying the power today with this GE brute!
  8. Peco at Beer is a real delight to visit. The business has a really professional look and the site is a credit to all the staff and it’s owners. Well worth a visit if you’re in the area. Plus enjoy a cream tea in the Pullman!
  9. After previous encouragement earlier in the thread I contacted Railway Modeller about an article on my layout. They were very interested and I submitted everything requested. Haven’t heard from them since, that’s 5 months. I made them aware of this forum back then.
  10. 126 works the bubbles although an A Class would be handed for the load tonight!
  11. Fitted a backscene just to help finish the layout off.
  12. Mk2B Driving trailer leads an eighty set into Ballymena past a MV. Now there’s an idea for the IRM lads!
  13. Here's one of the Mk2b's converted to a 80 Class trailer in 2001 in Portrush. Also included a photo of a typical 80 Class Easter in Portrush. Seen as many as 11 power cars in the Port at once during the early to mid 1990's. Ballymoney just to finish
  14. Some bagged pallet loads as well. https://www.modelrailwaysdirect.co.uk/rolling-stock-freight/-acc2260bag-bag-loaded-pallets-stacks/
  15. If someone is looking for some spares here’s a few we’ll priced. No connection to the model shop involved. https://www.modelrailwaysdirect.co.uk/rolling-stock-freight/-acc2259keg-5-stacks-of-kegs-90-keg-version/
  16. I’m no Canadian railroad expert but got hooked on the models after a visit to Canada in 1996. The railroads were impressive and the models light years ahead of anything available for the British market at the time. Now of course we are spoiled with all the great Irish stuff available but the CP Rail bug is still alive so I have a little 8 foot by 18 inch shelf layout to show off the motive power.
  17. I don’t think I will be taking any chances.
  18. The 201’s are an excellent match. Here’s a couple of photos. Sorry about the quality of the NIR MV Class 104 but it gives IRM an excuse to produce a C 201 Class model and it’s just after departing Ballymena for those interested.
  19. So for all of us with MM 111’s it’s great to have stock of equal or better quality to run with them at last and I will certainly be ordering my fair share as budget dictates. Now for those that like everything prototypically correct the bad news. MM112 carries certain features that came along after these coaches were withdrawn. MM113 carries the large front yellow panel that I believe again would have been painted after the coaches withdrawal. MM111 is actually the only one that would have run with some of these coach packs in real life. So this is an excellent opportunity for Murphy Models to get another run of 111’s done with the correct features and colours to run with these and give modellers who missed the chance to get one. I know I can’t wait for these coaches. Never did I believe these would be available RTR. Brilliant.
