  1. Thanks lads. We’re half way there!
  2. Mk2 range hopefully incorporating a 80 class announcement! please
  3. Fantastic photos especially the GP and SD40-2 one. Just wondering would you mind if I printed it off for my layout room?
  4. Just a couple of photos from my new CP Rail layout. Completely fictional location
  5. Just a note to say that my spare vac pipes arrived this morning direct from Murphy Models. Thanks for these and I will test my eyesight at the weekend and get them fitted.
  6. I would imagine the financial risk the Warley Club is exposed too very time they run the show would terrify many of the people who attack them for not running it. It’s the club’s decision and fair play to them for making it.
  7. Sorry to add to the cries of woe but Murphy product support has been non existent for me. I purchased seven 121’s in total from 2 retailers. Both contacted about broken vac pipes. Both said they couldn’t get parts return them. Kept them and contacted Murphy who then said the problem would be forwarded to the repairs guy. 3 months later still no vac pipes. Not good enough for modern day standards. I certainly has dented my confidence in Murphy Models. I have a large number of locos but it’s concerning little support for. By comparison, I had a 8 year old Rapido Trains LRC Loco that suddenly developed a motor fault. Contacted them three weeks ago. Motor sent free of charge and received over a week ago. Installed myself and model running like a dream. Certainly makes me consider concentrating on North American modelling again.
  8. Thanks for the info. I always try to have 24inch radius curves as a minimum so that’s great.
  9. Just a quick question but does the CAWS guard have to be removed if using couplings or can it be used down to a certain radius of curve?
  10. 048! Now that’s perfection! Exactly how a locomotive should look! Can’t wait for this to arrive now!
  11. Can I just say all the images so far have been fantastic. Just one question, is the cab front handrail plastic or wire? It’s the one part that looks very easily damaged if the packaging has any weakness at all. Can’t wait for the IR images.
  12. Can’t wait for these! I think a few 141/201’s maybe sold to help with funds!
  13. But surely it should always have been that way! Ireland has 60Million potential customers to export to in the UK but the UK only has about 5million to export to in Ireland! Thats a shameful position for Ireland to have been in the first place, and would make to question what the Irish goverment have been playing at in the first place!
  14. Yes Hattons as they are my local stockists, although I have had the same problem with 121’s from Rails. It was only 5 cab end vacuum pipes I required. In Hattons defence their product support for the class 66’s I own has been excellent.
  15. I don’t think the QC on the 121’s is any worse than any other modern detailed locomotive. . I have 7 and the only problem I have had is delivery with the cab end vacuum pipe broken on 3, which obviously occurred due to the packaging. I would say that I found product support for replacement parts for the broken parts to be nonexistent. Contact with Murphy and I received an email to say that they don’t deal directly with the purchaser, see your retailer. The retailer couldn’t get any spares either. Disappointing. Another area that could be improved is the internal packaging. I don’t think the foam cradle idea worked particularly well on this occasion.
  16. Another excellent announcement bringing more variety yet giving everyone a chance to buy something to meet their needs.
  17. Here’s some images of these fantastic wagons.
  18. Just a note to say the railway has been saved by the trust and will hopefully operate again before the end of the summer. Also I believe they are hoping to buy some of the auction stock so hopefully no one else bids and it gives them the cheapest restart possible!
  19. Does this mean the Deltic will end up the first locodelivered by the team?
  20. Bells Bubbles and Ballast at Ballyercall
  21. DJ I have just checked DCKits and I think they are showing them in stock!
  22. They seem to be sold out of Bell 20’reefers. Just check theC-Rail website to be sure.
  23. Yes all C-Rail products.
