  1. Fantastic new photos on the site from the Clements collection. Includes lots of SLNC photos, @Irishswissernie! Some very rare views, including 1928 photos of locos in old livery. Lots of other stuff of general interest -including narrow gauge - I even think there’s Cork and Muskerry in there too!
  2. Just out and available from The Syndicate for £10.95 plus £1 towards p&p. UK only. PM me, or e-mail me at lesliemcallister@aol.com If you're in Europe, buy your copy from the RPSI, it's in their Shop! 64 pages covering every aspect of this industrial narrow gauge empire. I think most people know that I'm no great fan of narrow gauge, but I've found this little book quite an eye-opener. Recommended! Leslie
  3. This new book has 224 pages. 275x215mm. Printed on gloss art paper, casebound with printed board covers. Unlike his previous two narrow gauge albums which covered the whole of the British Isles, this is solely IRISH NARROW GAUGE and of black and white photographs. So you can sit back and in the company of Michael Whitehouse, who has once again delved deep into the family archive established by his late father P.B. ‘Pat’ Whitehouse, which includes the work of many other well-known names such as W. ‘Cam’ Camwell, Henry Casserley, A.W. Croughton and Ron Jarvis, revel in the joys of a visit spanning the fifty year period from circa 1910 to around 1960 and mostly to the remoter parts of the country. The Syndicate will be selling this book by post, profits to Irish Preservation, as always (No.171's new tubes in particular). £25 UK only plus a token £1.50 for post and packing I'm sorry that I can't supply to the Republic, as the postage is almost as much as the book! I'm seeking a way round this impasse! I'll put up a sample page or two when they arrive. PM me, or e-mail me if interested. Leslie (Provincial Wagons and The Syndicate) Just a thought, if you're buying a pile of kits from me, I can put everything in the same box and save on the criminal postage!

  5. Hi All A quick question, anyone know what length the temporary track panels used by Bord na Móna are? I’m guessing 40 to 50 foot. I’m sure they probably vary widely but is there any standards at all? I’m looking at modelling a couple of narrow gauge bogie bolster wagons with track panels on, and am just trying to get an indication Of the length they should be.
  6. Hi All, I am a novice to modelling anything, I have a large stash of 00 gauge bits. However I have always had an interest in narrow gauge railways particularly the Tralee and Dingle. I also volunteer on the Stradbally Woodland and Cavan & Leitrim Railways, along with being a co-ordinator for the Avonside "Nancy" Restoration Project. I recently purchased a minitrains boehler 0-4-0WT and sent it away to be customised by James Hilton (available on Google) into one of the Andrew Barclay 0-4-0WT locos, the results are astonishing! I'm tempted to go and form a small BNM outline layout with a few turf wagons. Any suggestions would be welcome. I have just sent away two partially built Chivers Tralee and Dingle Hunlset loco's to be modified and detailed for me, will update you when they return.
  7. Folks I'll have no less that three new books for sale on the IRRS Stand at Warley at the weekend - profits to support Irish railway preservation. Irish Railway Memories - a Decade of Change 1984 - 1994: an album of photographs by Paul Haywood - until I looked through this, I hadn't really realised just how dirty diesels could get - ammo for the weathering men? £10.95 Railways in Ireland Part One: is a new edition of Martin Barstow's first of five volumes on Irish railways. This one covers the GNR, SLNCR, and the five narrow gauge lines in their hinterland. Many new photographs have been added - I haven't done a page by page comparison, but can assure you that it's beautifully reproduced with fine sharp b;ack and white illustrations. For an Englishman writing about Irish Railways, Martin does a commendable job and found interesting photographs by fellow countrymen who put their camera to good use in the Emerald Isle. £17.95 Finally, for the people with a narrower view of life: Narrow Gauge Album1950-1965 In Colour by Michael Whitehouse, son of a famous father PB ("Pat") Whitehouse of Railway Roundabout fame. "From the wilds of the west of Ireland, through the mountains of North Wales to the rolling countryside of the east of England ironstone fields, the narrow gauge railway provided an invaluable service for around a hundred years." I have yet to see the book, which just arrived in Lightmoor Press's warehouse yesterday, but I'll be picking up a supply on Saturday. Black Dwarf Lightmoor are the top railway publisher these days, in my not humble opinion - their books cover their topics thoroughly and the reproduction of images would take some beating. No one line captions for them - the norm is a meaty description of the scene, doing credit to the scene depicted. £25.00, but mention my nickname on this site and i'll give you a couple of quid off. Come to Stand C65 at Warley and have a look! Leslie(10646)

  10. Gday all, Live in Australia and fell in love with the bord na mona peat bog railways on a visit to my girlfriends home in Waterford last year. I have started modelling a layout 9 foot by 3 foot in On16 and need some help in getting a sense of scale for the models. If anyone has any plans or the ability to do simple measurements it would really be appreciated, specifically the wagons and locos such as the simplex and railmotors. I will keep all updated with the building process and thank all for the inspiration I have gained of your threads. Glad to be able to share with like minded people and will pick your brains for tips and tricks as I go if thats ok. Phil
