    I model Irish Railways CIE & GNRI From 1960's to 1990's.Some are kits & others are bought and kitbashed. some are made from scratch. All rolling stock is wheathered which i think makes all the difference & realistic.I love to see other peoples work & i know how many hours it takes, but it's worth it.

  1. Where did you get that?? I like the underframe but the top looks a bit plastic. When weathered down it will be nice.
  2. Here are a few pictures I took at Belfast docks a while back if they are of any use to you. You can also try looking up a website for Kelly coal boats, it might have something on it.
  3. The weathering on the steam loco's looks amazing and 141 is pretty good too.
  4. First, second and third class.
  5. They do look pretty light and a good match. They would look good on a coach.
  6. It is very pale but Railtec snails are a little dark and I wish they could do some pale ones. It's up to you, I would put white ones on and dirty them up a bit to take the brightness off them.
  7. A picture of the real thing would help you to see what is needed colour wise and any other detail that needs to be added. Should be nice.
  8. These will be very nice and tiny. A great part of industrial history from the start. And a nice video of Beamish Living Museum, a place I would love to see some day. Good luck with these, not that you'll need it.
  9. I know the feeling. When adverts start I hit the mute button and continue with the internet. BBC2 & BBC4 are better and no Adds. I only put the TV on to watch something and then turn it off.

    B101 LOCO

    I think maybe they had to fit the space made for them and could not be turned round to face the other direction.

    B101 LOCO

    I came across this picture on eBay of B107 and it shows it with tablet catchers, which I have not seen before and the catchers seem to be back to front compared to other locos.
  12. Most signals like the one above had white spectacle plate in the south but these were red in the north.
