  1. Looking forward to the O Gauge layout - it was my favourite last year. I was really impressed with the models on display and had a good chat with one of the guys who was very informative. Wonder if there'd be enough of a demand for Irish RTR models in O gauge? Gerard
  2. Hi Peter, The South Dublin Model Railway Club will be hosting this years exhibition in Blackrock College - Booterstown DART station is only a short distance away. Details are on the SDMRC website. Regards, Gerard
  3. I think that the A Class is the right way to go. It was the most numerous locomotive on the network (CIE/IR) and a lot of people will remember them. It will also help those of us who had to suffer the indemnity of operating LIMA [BR] class 33s and mark I coaches to get those dark days out of our collective memories. I don't want to mention the Hymeks, they were worse.
  4. DJ Dangerous, I was thinking the same thing. I expected loads of reviews from people who would have seen the model at first hand but, to my disappointment, not a word. I was going to head to Mark's Models to view the 121 but it's quite cramped in there so I was waiting for the real experts' opinions.
  5. [The] Derry Road, thanks for posting those pictures and videos. It's nice to see what's happening at other exhibitions, especially, for those of us who are adverse to travelling to anything that is held outside The Pale. Looking forward to the SDMRC Exhibition in two months (how far is Blackrock from the City centre?)
  6. Enjoyed filling out the survey. Hope my wish(list) comes through.
  7. Considering the amount of damage they done and the distress caused to the modellers the sentences are quite lenient.
  8. The bees' knees, the dogs' ********. There aren't enough superlatives to describe it. Looks like it will be the best ready to run model of an Irish locomotive prototype ever!
  9. Hi Branno, There is lots of information on the thread 'LIMA Murphy Models' which has pictures of all the ready to run models produced since the 1970s and you should see the wagons which were available with the Flying Snail logo. The logo was adopted from the DUTC after nationalisation of rail and bus services in Ireland (I'm open to correction).
  10. Thought I had been barred from this site 'cos of a number of comments I've posted in the past!
  11. Looks like a very impressive layout, would love to visit. From what I can see it looks comparable, albeit smaller, to what I saw at LOXX in Berlin. Great work.
  12. With the proliferation of Digital Command Control it's no longer viable to produce dummy versions of locomotives. If someone wants a non motorised model they'll have to remove the components that drive the wheels. Couldn't ever see myself doing that as I'm sure I'd break something along the way.
  13. Great work JasonB, a nice bit of weathering adds realism to any model.
  14. I'm not surprised that nobody replied to this thread. When I saw the pictures I wanted to get sick. It reminded me of a low point in so called RTR CIE models. Wonder if anyone will be mad enough to buy them? It's a good reminder for those of you too young to remember the pre-Murphy Models & IRM/Accurascale era.
  15. We should send the anti-dump protesters down there to clean it up!
