  1. Fingal Port & Harbour to date.. Still a lot more to do but its getting there.. This is the modern port im building that will be a central part of my layout. The port is located in the fictional Fingal County which is located to north of Dublin & Meath. The small but busy port is operated and owned by Dublin Port Company and is used as an overflow port to the busy Dublin port. Fingal Port features its own Oil terminal and container terminal along with other industry units inculding a fish/seafood processing plant, bulk good warehouse and logestics company aswell. And most importantly its own busy railway sidings which will be a hive of activity with planned container trains, oil fuel wagons, timber and also bulk goods on open wagons such as guinness kegs, ballast etc etc... 082 (formally IE177 )exits the ports entrance on to the Dublin-Belfast line The Harbour Police have been busy clamping an illegally parked car in front of the ports control center and container crane. The port container crane transfer a 40" container to awaiting artic Bantry Bay Seafood company processing plant on the left. Fuel being transfer to oil road tanker View of the oil loading dock used for transferring fuel to 20ton oil tankers New arrivals to my layout thanks to my good friend Michael Hand and his son Simon who built and painted/weather these great models for me! There adapted Dapol 20ton oil tanker along with scratch built barrier wagon and IR Brake van. Evening time and its all the sidings are almost full awaiting the arrival of evening cargo ship.. A new arrival and purchase by the Port Company a Volvo L180C timber carrier picked up in Manchester at the weekend! The Volvo tractor removes precut timber logs from the Mercedes low loader waiting for the waterford bound OTA timber wagons (when ever Bachmann realise them!!! Grrr) to arrive and load them on to them! 082 departs the yard with two container flats and two of Charlie Pettys Bulk drums i picked up at MRSI show on board heading for the cola cola factory out west.. The container crane has two Bulk container loaded and another two to ready to go! Our attic is almost finished being insulated thanks to the old man! and when it is the Port and along with the next stages of the layout will be moved into its permanent position and rest of the layout can begin to form and take shape. New Arrivals to the layout include the MM Mk2D Restaurant and EGV (when its on sale) in IE Orange and planing also to get two Bachmann IE Commuter units in December along with a few of the new MM new 201s! still drolling over them... ....... In preparation for the arrival of the new MM 201 next year! I have commissioned my good and talented friend Simon Hand who painted and made the Irish Rail oil wagons,barrier wagon and break van i have. He has agreed to under take to paint and adapt some Hornby BR Mk4s and DVT, I have into the modern IE intercity livery that runs between Dublin and Cork! The carriages will run with the new Murphys Models 201s due to be released next year in the modern intercity livery The train will be made up of the following 5 x Hornby Mk4 Carriages (1 x City Gold,2 x TSO Open,1x Catering,1 x DVT) 1 x MM 201 GM loco I cant wait to see them on track! ..... The next part of my layout to be built is the adjacent to the port is a harbour/seaside town.. Like most major seaside towns i remember visiting as a child i remember funfairs and amusements! All the bright flashing lights and cheesy dance music! So today i finally bit the bullet and bought some of the Faller fairground kits seen below that i have drolling over for a while! Ah hell all this O/T has to be worth something! ha The funfair will be a central part of the my seaside town and will be a attraction for hoards of young and old to visit it using my Commuter DMUs and the rest to keep my station busy! The funfair is made up so far of swing chair,bouncy castle,ferris wheel and swinging boats. I hope to also get some form of dodgem type ride in time! Looking forward to getting the rides made up and lit! and of course playing them cheesy dance tunes too... SCREAM IF YOU WANNA GO FASTER!!
  2. Goods Wagon, no wheels, The wagon is on Nenagh rd just outside Birr, first field after last houses on bad bend, wagon on right as you leave town. Sorry i couldn't measure the wagon, was on private property and I on business driving past, so i hopped over the wall, took the photos quickly. looks like 50's 60's Cie goods wagon i wanna take it home! End to end joy above photo with vent, part rivited on this side upright on pressed steel angle iron, maybe its older than 1950's then its bolted on at the other end of wagon , opp' end see below and 3rd pic down, could been repaired earlier wagon didnt see any markings the frame door hinge detail, i love rust, no realy, i go to great lenghts to capture rust on all sorts of old items, see those nuts, me thinks there 1950's below is door on far side, by road with flashing, looked like alloy not lead, sorry was rushing, didnt think to check. below, as plywood was manufactured way back, no clues there, as too age ah sure what about another glorious view, smaller image than first pic, i noticed those boards on ground and theres some yellowish green paint... ye are licking the lips by now is that a Cie logo? doubt it, but as timber expanded so did paint, maybe a sellers mark, drips and all yummy. either great steel or not that old? i thought pins like this were 1930's not 1950's

  4. Hi all, My name is Tony and I'm new here. This summer I'm hoping to build a new small(ish) portable layout which I can take model railway shows. Here is the track plan. I am trying to think of a new name for another halt, which doesn't involve cack, Bally, or donaghNIRwherebetteroffbefore1996 as my friend came up with Slive Cack with is irish for mount s**t and my other friend who hates translink came up with donaghNIRwherebetteroffbefore1996, and I basically want a name with out Bally. The layout is based on Translink NI Railways from late 1990s to present day. Please note: ballynawood & meganthreu can take a full 6 car set. There will also be a fictional railway company called tonys transport who shares locomotives with Translink NI Railways and IÉ such as 206 & 222 etc on the layout. Frist tonys transport coach: Wish me luck! Tony.
  5. Hi all, I've renctley been listening to the old theme tones of TTTE. But all the engines have their own theme tone so they do, my point is, what would the enterprise theme tone sound like if 8208 stared in TTTE? I know at least some one here has to like TTTE. Here is a video I found of Doundald & dougles theme: [video=youtube_share;8MI_g2hulo4]
  6. Hi Guys, Robert Davies has posted a wonderful link to Dave Sallery's images of Irish Rail in the 90's in another thread, and it reminded me of a question I've had and never asked before... I have a memory from that time of a single Craven carriage in the newer IR livery having the 'IR intercity' logo on the side of it. Any one else have any memory of this or is my mind starting to fail me finally?? Was this single Craven knocking about in the 90's?? Regards, Dave
