So the wait is finally over B 121 & B135 landed safely in D5 this afternoon, living close to the Airport has its advantages              

I told him not to paint it, but he did sort out the valve gear.          

Last shipment: MM 124          MM129           MM134

Regarding content Dave, you're doing such a good job (sincerely) it almost seems heretical to to make a suggestion! :D

 

Somewhat oddly, I have the most trouble sorting out the more recent stuff from Paddy, like, say the 2d coaches.

 

Just know that you have at least one supporter of your work on this side of the water! :D

 

Regards,

Dave please continue with the MM list bringing it up to the present time then you can go onto the Q Kits, MIR Collection etc. I would also like a copy of your list but you don't answer your PM's!

Nothing in my inbox K, when did you PM me?

Could you please continue on from the 141/181's as I think it would be better than jumping back in time. Cravens and Mk2's next please as it would be a nice seen the next release of Mk2's is due shortly

 

I'd like to see the Cravens and Mk2s up next. Especially the Mk2Ds are they are getting as rare as hens teeth. The Cravens without orange stripe on top are very scarce too.

I would have thought the Cie livery cravens would be more available ?

 

The were 3 in the CIE livery and I believe they were released later than the 5 later livery Cravens. I wouldn't mind picking up a few of the CIE ones if they show up anywhere. Rails shefield seems to be the only place to have them in stock.

Just took delivery of my LIMA 201 River Boyne 207 yesterday. But I've noticed that the English "River Boyne" is matched at the other end of the loco with the Irish "Abhainn na Life". Is this a rarity or was the entire run of this model mis-named in the two languages?

all the 207's had the same error, it was the nicest of all the liveries though!

Thanks - I must check to see if the real one has the same error!

 

I'm researching what I could run with it in terms of passenger stock. I was surprised to find 207 in Enterprise livery in Cork ( Irish Rail GM 207 in Kent Station.). I assume it was never on the Galway / Sligo lines. I commuted from Portarlington into Dublin for several years but don't ever remember seeing it there (though I was mostly travelling in the dark and wasn't really looking out for it). Could I get away with Mark 2 coaches? If I need Mark 3, does anyone have experience of using the vinyl overlays, which I could use to update a few old Hornby Mark 3s?

 

thanks.

There's at least two.

 

Replies seem hardly necessary - it would be rather like Moses scratching something on a tablet to leave on Mt Sinai...

I firmly believe that the Craven models are one of if not the best coaches ever. When you look at the numbers within the class and their geographical location it seems amazing that we have them as models. I prefer them to a MK11 or MK111 any day.

 

Rich,

If Moses was a model railway enthusiast he would a few rakes of cravens (handy for GAA specials and religious events).

December 09 saw the launch of the early liveried Cravens

My favourite coach!
