Ths lockdown has allowed me to reset up in the attic.. the IE 22000 DMU that arrived under the Christmas tree got its first run out this evening.. its a very smooth runner

The layout is all intact after protracted storage and just in need of abit of TLC and the scenery & buildings reinstalled :)

Amazing buildings.

Did you build them?

They are all kits I bought and built generally..

Most of buildings are faller, kibri, bachmann and superquick with some older Hornby town & country kits from the 1990s. 

I have a fondness for town planning and love planning accurate scenes with plenty of details to bring them life..

The evening liner train pulled by 071 exits the Port of Fingal on route to the west of Ireland. Vehicular traffic halts at the ports level crossing awaiting for it to pass..

The docklands town scene is taking shape.. between Harbour House office block and the customs house is nestled my scratch built/kit bashed Docklands below ground station entrance & passenger platform lift..

More to follow on the new station and platform works..

The new east pier is now home to the world Famous Saint James Gate Guiness brewery so the area will be host to plenty of visitors for a creamy pint of the black stuff and tourists can easily access it via the new Docklands station 🚂 or by ferry in the harbour ⛴ or even open top tour buses 🚍

More detail to add over time..
