You remembered! Thanks Eamonn for the 121 pics!

 

....and all the rest of course!

 

Ah yes that van, I have been in a similar situation myself... Hanging by the back axle off a fence post, pretty much vertical down an old quarry face with naught but 20ft of fresh air beyond the bonnet badge - as a point of reference MkIV Escort van rear doors open fine from the inside with mild persuasion.

 

:D

Glad you liked the photos Robert.

The gray 121 seemed to grap my attention and won

me over when seeing it haul the goods.I did take a video

of it,but it won't load from my I pod touch to photobucket

for some strange reason.

I think we could write a book on our postal work.

That grey 121, I didn't know 121s ever wore that livery, it sorta looks like the old L&N livery in the States.

With names changed to protect the guilty :P

A fine replica of the real thing. Very impressive. The model looks as good as the real thing, even more impressive when it's hand painted.

A fine photo there Glenderg of a nice livery.

Some great photos of 121s in a IRRS journal from

a few years back.Well worth getting your hands on

if you don't have it already.

Some great shots of the 121s in the various liveries they wore down through the years.The grey livery of the early 60s is particularly stunning.It is great to see photos of hand-painted locomotives as I feel they capture the feel of the real thing better than an unblemished sprayed locomotive.There is something therapeutic about hand-painting stock,especially Irish stock,a lot slower than spraying but a lot more rewarding.The stock looks totally at home in the layout surroundings as well,a fine looking layout.

What a great collection, I make it:

121’s 121 in silver, black & orange, plus 130 & 135,

A Class in green A20 & in black A20

C Class in silver C230 & black C205.

not to mention 141’s in abundance.

Thanks for the photos Eamonn and to Gerry for allowing his great layout and models to be shown.
