  1. Have to say, this is my favourite thread. Always look forward to new photographs being added. Learn so much of how Ireland's railways were back in the mid-20th century. A picture tells a thousand words.
  2. I'd say that Paddy Murphy got all of the details right and, maybe, it's EMD/CIE/IÉ who got it wrong and they should use his models to put things right. Does anyone remember how many RTR models of Irish railway prototypes were available on the market 20 years ago. It's so long ago I can't remember.
  3. The MM0125 looks great. I'd say these models will sell very quickly.
  4. It has been announced that the production of the Fleischmann HO Profi Track has ceased. It's news to me as I thought that they had stopped producing all HO related model railway items since 2019. Sad to see the demise of a once great model railway manufacturer.
  5. Just shows you how good the IRM stuff is when you didn't need to use them.
  6. The yellow handrails on the 121 in that video are very plastic looking.
  7. @snapper - Thanks for posting that video. It made really interesting viewing.
  8. It's my brother's birthday also. Mind, you guys [IRM] have done more in the last five years that he has his whole life. Congratulations and a big thank you for all of the wonderful models you've created.
  9. What are dynamic brakes? I've heard them mentioned a lot on product review videos relating to models of American diesel locomotives.
  10. Do any of you guys actually 'enjoy' railway modelling?
  11. It's a brilliant model. Didn't think I'd bother with the grey version until I saw it in the flesh. I'm in awe of how great it looks, took my breath away. Hope it's detailed enough to keep the Irish railway modeller extremists happy.
  12. 20 years ago we weren't complaining about the plastic looking hand rails on our 'Irish' railway models. I wonder why that was?
  13. Think I'll wait for the Silver Fox version.
  14. I notice that the changes/updates were done on a 'Good News Week'. What will happen the week when the As are launched? Watch this space (which might look a lot different than it does today)!
