TWO Irish articles in the latest Model Railway Journal. First on a model of Dromod station building, plus another on West/South Clare locos in both 4mm and 6mm scale.

 Given MRJ never normally goes outside Britain, this is quite a departure, but then the editor this time is Iain Rice, who for me always has something interesting to share.

Without having seen this thread I was thumbing through some old magazines yesterday and came across the "Plan of the Month" Aug 2009 in Railway Modeller the subject of which was Ballina. A great deal of the necessary rolling stock to create this has become available in RTR form in the meantime making this scheme a lot more feasible today, perhaps RM can be persuaded to rerun it? The picture is a taste, I do not want to infringe copywrite.

You beat me to it, David. Here’s a couple of tasters:

Looks like Simon de Souza's model of Dromad.

Simon produces a range of high quality C&L wagon kits which are sold under the Foxrock Models label.

I have a number of Foxrock C&L cattle wagons and opens to assemble, whenever I make the time.

Now that’s modelling!

I certainly agree, Simon very kindly let me have a good look at his Dromod building when I delivered some of my kits - my jaw hit the floor - stupendous modelling.

If you can get a copy of MRJ you'll get a very good idea of just how good it is as their photography is usually spot-on.

Saves you a journey to England to see it!
