I'm not sure what Fainne, Anthony's little girl, is looking at here (Mum's holding the camera)! Today was the second anniversary of Anthony's untimely death.

Apologies to the gent who wanted a second GSWR brake van - I recently repatriated three, as I was out of stock here in England! God-willing we'll be at Raheny and you can buy one there!

Leslie (Provincial Wagons)

Thanks for coming to our show! It was a great success.

Had a great time at the show yesterday. Enjoyed a few cups of tea, sandwiches and cakes in The Station Cafe also. @enniscorthyman - I didn't realise that was the "Bushville" US HO layout as I was too busy admiring all the models on it. As ever, the O gauge layout was my favourite, would love to see an A Class in that scale.

Some of the MRSI O gauge group have scratch-built Irish locomotives...

I'd decided to bring along a 3D printed wagon that had a clip for a DJI Pocket camera to see whether I could play some fun and games with it on the late Monday afternoon... as you can see, fun and games were had!

I had a most enjoyable afternoon at the show yesterday - congratulations to all at WMRC and all the tremendous exhibitors. I was in awe at the talent and creativity on display, learned so much from open, sharing and warm chats with Enda and Eamonn on "Past Avenue" and "Bushville" plus sage advice from Gerry Byrne on "Shunters Yard" and many more. So many layouts to admire - I particularly liked "Weston Interchange", "Rathmicheal", "European Tramway", "Old Farm", "Little Siddington" of course, and finally "Over the Hill".

I just watched Nick's excellent video - I even spotted myself 🤭

Your video is great and it was great to meet you . Your own layout was stunning.

Took a spin around Saltmills and came across 2 houses with some interesting bit an bobs outside, One had 2 halves of a flywheel another had loads of rusting tractors outside too. I wonder if it is the same lads that brought the boat up there?

This house had about 10 rusting tractors in the front of it. The old car is a lot worse for wear since google has mapped it.

The black n tan 121s from memory was the quickest to sell out

Think it was unusual for an early liveried locomotive to sell out so quickly but number 125 was the pick of the bunch. The black and tan livery best suited the Class 121.*

 

*In my opinion
