  1. I saw this photo of 7140 branded as a First in a Flickr gallery a while ago, and I'm wondering if it's my eyes or do the seats not line up with the windows? https://www.flickr.com/photos/tramfan/14647733553/
  2. I'm currently compiling a list of Irish Coaching Stock for use in any article I'm planning to right and while I've had no real issues with the Mk2d stock I've found a few discrepancies with certain Mk3 vehicles that I'm hoping someone can clear up for me. For reference I'm looking for the state of the following vehicles in about 2004: 7107 - was this an Open Composite seating 36F/36S or an Open Standard seating 64? 7147 - was this an Open Standard seating 72, 66 or 64 plus a wheelchair space? 7157 - was this an Open First seating 64 or an Open Standard seating 64? Additionally I'm curious as to how the two Executive Mk3s were used. I believe they were used in specials and so-called "Executive" trains but I assume they were also used in normal service trains? If so what services were they typically used in and as which type of vehicle, I've seen reference to 7162 being used as a dining car, is this when used in Executive trains or in lieu of a CityGold vehicle or something? Finally I've got a vague idea of how the seats were generally formed but if someone could let me know if the following is broadly correct: Dublin-Cork CityGold services: Typically Generator Van-CityGold-Buffet-5/6 Standards Other Dublin-Cork: Typically Generator Van-Composite-Buffet-4/5 Standards Dublin-Galway/Waterford/Tralee/some Limerick services: Typically Generator Van-Composite-Buffet-4/5 Standards Dublin-Westport: Typically Generator Van-Standard-Buffet-3 Standards Thanks in advance for any answers or clarifications anyone can give. Regards, Ben
  3. I just saw the Belmond Grand Hibernian in Galway this week. Impressive looking train - . Great to see that not all of the MK3s ended up on scrap heap after all and are back in service in all their glory. I lamented the awful footage on YouTube of them being ripped apart. We have some added variety on our rails now thankfully. There's definitely a nice re-spray opportunity here for someone to take up!
  4. FOR SALE I've decided to sell my full set or IE MK3's. All of the coaches have been converted/repainted from Lima MK3's coaches and all lightly weathered. The GUV was converted using Studio Scale Models brass kit and has a Kadee coupling at one end set to NEM height. Here's what you get: 1 x 1st Class (Glazed with Shawplan Laser Glaze) (Coach A) 1 x Restaurant (Coach B) 4 x Standard (Coaches D, E, F & G) 1 x GUV (AKA Genny Van) I'm looking for €450 + P&P. Will accept CASH or PayPal (Family & Friends). Sold as seen. No returns. Thanks for looking. Tony.
  5. Hi, a question regarding mk3 liveries in the late 80s: Were there "mixed" trains with both CIE supertrain and IR tipp-ex coaches? I never saw pics of a train with both livieries. Same question for mk2d stock! Frank
