I enjoyed these years back but driving now from Cork to Dublin first, Parking in Connolly, Train up then is now massively expensive.

I booked to go to Model rail Scotland this Friday by Ryanair a few weeks back €33.38 Return , checked a day return to Belfast on 23rd April and best price is €35.98

so bout 50 notes Diesel to Dublin and back plus train, plus nosh etc. certainly spend the few bob on something else. the Benefits of living all the way down here.

Agreed! All major preservation society’s are based north of Dublin. ma’am cross, RPSI, cultra, C&L, Donegal ect. Waterford has the Suir valley, Kerry has the lartigue railway, Clare has moyesta, Tipperary has ITG in carrick. The cost and time to get to and from any of these sites is a bit of an object. Meanwhile in the whole county of cork we have no.36 in Kent and 2 Park Royal coaches in the west cork model railway village.

Hi everyone,

We're gearing up for Bangor this weekend and will be there with models for sale as well as decorated samples of our Magnesite wagons and our NIR Mark 2 coaches.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Trust my luck. My daughter bought a house in Bangor, just 5mins from the Venue but alas i am basking in the sun in Adelaide and sorry that i’ll miss out this time. Have fun, everyone.

Can’t you just get an ex Lisburn train and change at Central ? ;)

I've never associated the two places as having the same name, despite knowing of both of them. Isn't that strange?!

Could be worse.

I had a couple of aunts who had a friend who was as geographically-challenged as they were - she got on a train in Bristol to go the few miles to Wellington (in Somerset) and got off it in Wellington in Shropshire.

I managed to get a few photos of some of the layouts at the exhibition. i posted my T Trak layout photos on the T trak thread.


Four views of  Feneghy  an OO scale layout of a fictional NCC line set in the Ballymoney area.





A closeup of therec NCC liveried 6 wheel coaches


Rush hour perhaps?



Two new layouts from the Glenabby club

First an OO scale layout



Second a compact N gauge layout. the stone buildings are Metcalfe card kits


Four views of the large Portadown layout. A spectacular layout.








How railways started?

Growing up in the village of Gilford, and going to school in Portadown, William Redpath's model of Poradown Station is so nostalgic. What an achievement to model such a large area so accurately. I remember seeing it a few years ago (probably at Cultra) when the roundhouse area was still being developed. There are so many areas along the length of the model brilliantly modelled. Hats off to you William, brilliant realism, terrific modelling.
