Fowler 4f,

My pleasure. I'm glad I have been of assistance to you. I'm of an age to remember the introduction of the GNR (600) and CIÉ (2600) Railcars as well as the A and C class locomotives. If my aged memory can be of assistance just ask! 


Old Blarney.

Old B, 

At the age of 11 yrs old (1966), while on holidays in Galway, I used to shunt the yard on an A class with Driver Pierce Wade making up the evening goods train. I emigrated in 1978 and became a Driver on British Rail at Waterloo, London, I retired in 2016.

If you’re lucky you can run wires to the ‘oil lamps’ instead of to the headlight in the re-engined As, maybe use the same CV on DCC, or maybe from the marker lights? Maybe one for the DCC forum

I only intend to use lamps on A1 and will hopefully solder direct to base beneath decoder Pin 8 & Pin 16 tabs. 🙏
