  1. After sitting on my camera for the last few months I've finally got around to editing and posting the following videos covering my Irish Railway Model wagon purchases at the end of last year. In the absence of the A-Class at this point, Murphy Models Classes 121, 181 and 071 are providing the traction. A review for the fertilser wagons is pending but I do have a running session below.

  2. The highlight of our calendar is the October Bank Holiday weekend, when we "play at home" as they say and exhibit at the Dublin model railway shows, held each year on rotation by the Model Railway Society of Ireland and the South Dublin Model Railway Club. That's where it all began for us five years ago, when the good folk of the SDMRC gave us some space at the very last minute (we will be forever grateful for it!) to meet the modelling public for the first time and announced our intentions to produce an Irish outline model railway wagon; the humble CIE hopper. A lot has happened in those five years, as IRM goes from strength to strength and the Irish model railway scene enjoys support and growth like never before. Of course, we didn't see that we would be in this position today back then, and certainly nobody could've predicted the strange times we are now in that causes us all to miss out on the Dublin show, but there's always positives ahead! We have decided to revisit that first model we announced back in 2015 amid much fanfare among those who knew us, but one that was missed out by many others who have only learned of our existence in recent times. Yes, our lovely little hopper is back, in a host of new guises and including the gypsum wagon variant for the very first time! Beginning with the ballasts, a mere 833 packs were produced in our first run as we tentatively entered the market for the first time. Since that run, we have gained many new friends and people "in the know" when it comes to research material, including a man who wishes to remain anonymous. Let's just dub him "The Archivist". The Archivist had some amazing research material which allowed us to bring back the ballasts back with a bang, offering a number of packs spanning three distinct eras with some unique and tasty markings covering their lifespan on the network! Beginning with CIE featuring their iconic roundels, before progressing into the IR post 1987 era sporting the points logo and text, and then entering their final years in IE guise with a smorgasbord of interesting markings and painted out patches. Of course, these hopper wagons were used for other services too. Hoppers numbered 26666-26694 were built by CIÉ in 1972 to cater for mineral traffic from Irish Gypsum’s railhead at Kingscourt in County Cavan, which served Irish Cement factories at Drogheda in county Louth, Castlemungret in County Limerick and Platin in County Meath. Initially, these wagons could often be found in mixed rakes along with ‘Bulleid’ corrugated open wagons. On such occasions the hoppers would always be located closest to the locomotive as they featured continuous vacuum braking, while the open wagons were loose-coupled and required a brake van to be included at the rear of the train. By the 1980s gypsum traffic was carried exclusively by the hopper wagons and this remained the case until the flow ceased in 2001. This long lived and widely travelled working featured A Classes, 141/181s as well as 121s during its life, even with the odd 201 featuring in later years in the Limerick area! We have tooled some all new loads to give the distinctive variety of shape and size of the gypsum as per the real thing! The best part (apart from variety, multi eras covered, gypsum variants with newly tooled load etc) is the price, with each pack costing just €99.95 each! This is a €10 reduction on our first run and is our way of saying thank you for your support since we started, as well as a little helping hand during these uncertain times. Ballast packs will be available in CIE, IR and IE bundle packs, with three packs per bundle along with their respective plough vans for just €370 (11 wagons per bundle including ploughs.) The gypsums are available in four packs of three wagons at €99.95 each or €375 for all 12 wagons. You can order the ballasts by clicking here and the gypsums by clicking here. Due to COVID restrictions on factory slots the production runs have been limited in size so order early to avoid disappointment. Delivery is due in late November 2020!
  3. We're delighted to announce that we will open the order book for the Tara Mines wagons this weekend at our range launch! The first run of models will see five packs of two wagons in the current red oxide scheme, giving you an authentic ten wagon train. The wagons promise to have a level of detail yet to be seen in 4mm, including rotating axle caps, kinematic couplings and a wealth of separately applied detail. We will be able to take orders at the event on Saturday and online. Prices will be €79.95 per pack. Excited? We are!
  4. Hi everyone, Well after months of research, CAD, checking, corrections, amendments to corrections and tooling, the first sample of our massive 'project 42' has arrived, sporting a first sample view of our weed spray tanks! The fully diecast underframe provides a lovely weight with excellent detail and fidelity in plastic and wire fittings. It also comes on our excellent Y33 bogies as first seen on the Tara Mines wagons, so rotating axle hubs are included! We have some corrections to make, but overall it looks excellent! Here are some images to whet the appetite! (Please note that this is a pre-production sample, and details like the headboards will not be on the weedspray wagons. It is just to demonstrate parts, fit and finish!)
  5. Another day, another survey! Richie and I are out and about to measure-up something which will be the first stage of a real game-changer for IRM. We’ll reveal more on this one closer to the release date of the model in question.
  6. We all remember those dark days when we would use the contents of a well known chocolate egg as the body for homemade cement bubbles. Thankfully, those days are gone, and to celebrate we are doing a very special sale this weekend on all 5 packs of remaining bubbles, both online and at the Wexford Model Railway Club Easter Exhibition. 2 packs: €225 discount code: 2easter2018 (save €25!) 3 packs: €340 discount code: 3easter2018 (save €35!) 4 packs: €450 discount code: 4easter2018 (save €50!) 5 packs: €550 discount code: 5easter2018 (save €75!) You must include the correct discount code for the amount of packs you are buying. Simply put it in at the checkout to receive the discount. We will be selling bubbles at the Wexford show at this price and can accept cash and all major credit cards at the show. This can be made up of any permutations of bubble packs B, C, D, E and F you wish to do. This egg-cellent deal begins at 9am on Good Friday and finishes midinight Easter Monday. Don't miss out on this great bargain! www.irishrailwaymodels.com/shop
  7. TARA DISCOUNT CODES EXPLAINED We have had a number of questions regarding our Tara discounts. Here is a quick explanation on how they work! Firstly, if you bought ballast hoppers direct from us, the slip of paper below came with a long 13 digit code either glued to the slip, or wrapped around it on another piece of paper. To avail of this discount, add each pack to your cart individually and then add it in when prompted at the check out on our site to get 10% off. It will NOT work if you add the bundle to the cart. Although it states on the slip that the discount on a rake is 4 packs, it will work for all 5! If you did not buy the ballasts direct from us, then select the 'bundle' option when buying online and this will give you a 5% discount on all five packs. Finally, if you are having any trouble with the code or any other part of the purchasing process, or have any questions on how it all works, please email us directly on info@irishrailwaymodels.com and we will sort it out for you. It works seamlessly for 99% of people, but we all have the odd tech issue can always creep in! We've hit the 20% mark in Taras sold already in less than three days, which is incredible. Thank you to everyone who has ordered so far! Our order book is open, don't miss out! https://irishrailwaymodels.com/product-category/freight-stock/tara-mines/
  8. Hi everyone, Do you think our ballast wagons were the best wagons Model Rail magazine reviewed in 2017? Were we your model manufacturer of the year? If so, please vote for us in the 2017 Model Rail awards! https://www.model-rail.co.uk/moty2017/ We'd really appreciate any votes we get! (the bubbles were not reviewed until the Jan 2018 issue so they will be in next years awards!) Thanks, Fran

  10. Don't get me wrong guys, fantastic models. I ended up pre ordering 12 packs in total and now have few packs surplus to requirements. Reason for sale is to help fund a few orange bubbles. Selling 1x A, 1x B and 1x C pack. Selling for €90 each or all 3 packs together for €250. All 3 packs sold pending payment.
