  1. Hi Guys just came across this link in case anyone is interested https://paxton-road.blogspot.com/2019/07/commission-hunslet-wagonmaster.html I am awaiting further detail and price Regards Colin Rainsbury
  2. Thanks for that John, the Credit card is going to be badly hit later this year anyway with the class A locos so add 30 of these wagons whats a few bod more. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen pounds and six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds and six pence, result misery. (Mr Micawber Dickins)
  3. I wouldn't be surprise to find that Des does more sales from all these extra bits from his kits than he does a complete kit some times. There may be more of a market for all those extra additions to RTR models that we care to think about. Colin R
  4. looking at the humbers flying off the shelf, i would be a mug if I didn't ask for at least 10 ( may be 20 once I have purchased all the other bits I have out standing at the moment) Just out of Interest how many would run in a medium size train? Colin

  8. Hi Popeye, Just had a note back from Neville, he tells me he has made contact with Ian and he hopes to be sorting out all the missing castings in due course, if this happens then, this will bring back in to production the L&LSR 4-8-0 Tender loco kit I think Eoin will have his name all over one of these when they become available again Colin.

    I have a great local model shop here in Kent (England) Invicta Model's of Sidcup Kent. I shall wait and get mine via them. One advantage is they may be willing to do custom livery editions, if they have enough people on a list they may well do it. Here is a link to thier website:- https://www.invictamodelrail.com/ Very good customer relations Colin R

    Welcome back!

    Hi guys unless I have missed something, I would put it down to a technical glitch or someone forgot to pay the web server / phone bill. Not that it matters now, just glad to have it back up and running. Colin R
  11. Hi Popeye Neville is not one to keep his website up todate, as he is to busy with the day job and when he gets time he will produce a few chassis , he tells me he would like to expand the 00n3 range over time, but lets get what he has up and running first. As for a web site you can try the following https://www.n-driveproductions.com/ but dont expect it to be current I think he last looked at it about 3 years ago, for me it does not matter since I have the address and he lets us know over on the 00n3 yahoo group when something new is coming out from the backwood kit range. I have past on the contact detail for Ian Young, as this could help find some of the missing castings he needs for one or two of the Backwoods kits, just got to save my money now for the Donegal class 5 kits ( all 8 of them, 3 for Class 5A) and of course the four class 4's as well. From what I know he has the following available Donegal Turntable kit Donegal Coaches kits (3 types one of each) He is currently working on the Cavan and Leitrim 4-4-0T kit Hopefully before the end of the year Donegal Railcar No 7 and 8 will be available. I don't have prices for them but I hope this all helps Colin R
  12. Hi also don't forget the website and archive here https://newirishlines.org/ If you have something you want to publish then contact Alan as I am sure he would like a few more articles for future Magazines Colin R

    Welcome back!

    I am glad I am not the only one that missed this website, though my computer had gone wrong when I could not touch base with you guys, was there a reason why it had gone down? Colin
  14. Its times like this you just want to say NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO dont give up on the kits. Take in to consideration the size of the irsh model market and I bet you are doing far better that some of the Smaller British kit manufactures who would have a larger market. In 009 at the moment there is a lot more RTR than there has been for years, yet if Heljan can get it wrong then they are left with models no one wants to buy, but us 00n3 models felt a chill when Backwoods stopped producing his kits due to personal circumstances The upside of this is that some one is now producing the kits again, the downside is they are twice as expensuive due to costs, I did have a budget of £2,000 to buy all the kits I needed from him, now I will be luck to get all the one's I need for about £4,000. Please don't take this the wrong way, But I do understand what is involved in bringing a kit to market, there is a lot more to it than a lot of people know, first you have to make a model to see how it will go together, then you may have to make up a number of prototype just to get one item correct, after that you have the masters to make and you hope that they come out good enough to make the kits in, if it isn;t then you have to start the whole process over again (more time used up). May be after six months or more it may just happen and you get a new kit in production. you then need to price it up so you can recover your cost's, I don't know of one small model railway manufacturer making a living out of this. So what it is worth please make the kits, I might not be the first in the que, but if your kits can run on 21mm gauge track then I will be interested and in line. Regards Colin R
  15. Yes please I do have one from the Railway Modeller of Blarney, but any other drawing is welcome as sometimes different drawings show up details which are not alway shown on other drawings. Colin
