  1. Fair play to the Air Corps - its a fantastic service they provide!
  2. Eoin, before I saw your reply I contacted Bachmann who are sending out a replacment for 5 pounds posted. As this loco will not be near little hands again and be given the care it deserves, the replacement drawbar will see me out! But I do thank you for the kind offer of help, it is really appreciated
  3. 145 - 165 and often higher on ebay. You could get the English version new dcc fitted for that ...esp if shes black. Stick on a few decals and Bobs your uncle!
  4. Hows the boys? Got this loco for the handsome price of nothing ...its in perfect condition, but manhandled by a toddler who broke the drawbar. The bar itself is plastic and appears easy to damage so has anyone got any suggestions as to a stronger replacment?🤔 Thanks!
  5. Great news...now take your time and hurry up!!!😉
  6. Congrats lads- well deserved.....onwards and upwards!
  7. Calling IRM - might it be a runner in the future that the A classes and any further releases be they STEAM (yes please!) or diesel. will have the option of a sound chip fitted as with the Deltics across the great divide?
  8. Hmmm - the plot thickens......
  9. Sorry to learn of the death of one of the best Sgt Majors ever to hit the screen!😪 Good night Windsor!
  10. Well Boyos, I think it is a welcome change and good luck to it! There is another consideration here other than the interchangeability factor - - white paint weighs lighter than coloured therefore it saves money on fuel bills over thousands of air miles, also white does not heat up as much , if memory serves (and today its fine!) the Pepsi Concorde was painted blue and could only fly at mach 2 for about 20 minutes before the air frame began to overheat.
  11. Orgasmic thought here lads!!
  12. Great news for me.....bad news for the bank balance

    Lads....has there ever been a time where the Taras were in a grey livery, or possibly grey with dirt? I can remember a pic of an almost grey rake pulled with an IR logoed A class. Any thoughts?
  16. Tesco installed a medical machine that for £5 and a urine sample, would diagnose any condition. When my mate went with a sore elbow, the computer printout read "You have tennis elbow. Soak it in warm water and avoid heavy work for 2 weeks" Impressed,my mate wondered if he could fool the machine. He mixed tapwater with dog poo, urine samples from his wife and daughter, and then pleasured himself into the mixture. When he tipped it into the machine the next day, the printout read: 1. Ur tapwater is too hard. Use softener. 2.Ur dog has ringworm. Giv it antibiotics. 3.Ur daughter is on cocaine. Get her to rehab. 4.Ur wife is Xpecting twins. Not urs. Get a lawyer. 5.If u keep playing with yourself, ur fuckin elbow wont get better! Thank u for shopping at Tesco!
  17. Interesting to see one original Baytes ore wagon in that rake of spoils! Excellent capture Gordon
  18. Shitty way for the poor buggers to go - Das Boot wouldn't be my cup of tea!

    Vote for IRM!

    Done and dusted - good luck lads!
  20. Hmmm....'must be over the age of 20' Broithe - we just about qualify so!
  21. In keeping with the 'Nice Touch' theme, I just got an invoice from the Towers informing me that my A class fleet were paid for in full! The idea to pay off a few quid at a time is the absolute 'Dogs'! Again, fair play to the mothly crew at IRM for allowing us to avail of this excellent scheme - one of which I will avail of again and again!
