Pretty much @Edo, palletisation began in the 1960s and of course CIE roundel lasted long after that. These ae a bit generic in tooling (we commissioned them from existing tooling) to add to scenes in Depots etc.

Cheers!

Quick question - what era are we talking?.... as far back as 1970's?

Thanks

The one without the rollcage is definitely 70's era, as seen in this classic CIE video around the 3min mark

Great idea, nice models to add to any yard/depot scene. Tara Junction may end up buying your entire stock. :) :) 

A tad early for my era of loose coupled 2 axle non-container stock (ie pre-1974 when pallets become more widespread with the CIE wagon modernisation program). Clips of these lifts in action in vid below.

From my own observations at the time, I think that things like this started appearing about 1973/4.

how long was the cie roundel retained and when was it replaced by IR and points?

You’d have seen it about for some years afterwards, though none of those type of wagons lasted until IE days. The “Set of points” logo only appeared in 1987. The old CIE roundel would have been on some locomotives, though, well into the 1990s.

Can I ask are the  wheels and axels independent or are they all cast as one piece with the body?

I think there all the same cast by the looks of the photo, understandable for a 00 gauge forklift (ie they must be very small)

Reversing "beeps" ? The Mrs won't know whats going on in the attic.

I know someone whose wife has never seen his attic layout, and it's been going for over twenty years now.

She's seen photos and videos, but that's it.

I've told her he got those off the internet and he really has a distillery up there.

Right I have been on to the insurance company to see where I stand with one of these. The usual..

"Where will it be kept overnight?"

"Do you require open driven? i.e. anyone between the ages of 25 and 70 years of age if they hold an appropriate licence.

I put the wife down as there are two of them.

So a heads up, check with your insurance company if you are thinking of splashing out.

Also there will be the annual CPC thing to keep up your entitlement to drive one of these....
