I cant remember ever seeing them but a possibility is they were rented for a contract and had decals stuck on.It would be nice if some one said yes and had a pic.

As far as i know they did have them, the nearest i ve come to prove is this bell liner 2nd wagon after the loco, i think Mr Mayner took it

Merciful hour, but where do you lads find these little beauties??

 

I've never seen one of those photos before. Pure class.

 

Regarding Glebderg's post

Looking at network efficiencies, isn't pulling two four wheelers with a 2000bhp engine, just a tad overkill? Wouldn't a G class have done the job :)

 

Des, it was probably in Loughrea pulling a cattle wagon and a laminate or some other peculiar formation!

The acrylonitrile train often ran with just 2-4 tanks, with a 20ft container at one or either end acting as a barrier wagon. It was a very specialised flow using the highly flammable content and operated for the Asahi plant in Killala, the train been Dublin-Ballina. In later years the flow was sometimes tacked onto the end of ordinary liner trains. The service ended with Asahi closing in 1997. The siding in Dublin for Asahi was on the Alexandra Road.

I should think you would need to contact Guinness directly your self Arran as word of mouth would not be permission and as well they could possibly help with the decal size as they get the last say in what way the tanks would be liveried. You may find they would put you in contact with the company who make the vinyl advert and i am sure they would oblige you as most companies would when they find out its for a model.Best of luck with what ever your doing for the future.

HI All

 

Well if anyone can get permission I will do the Guinness one :-bd

 

But i would need good quality pics and some colour specs

I have heard that Diageo has refused other model maker authority to use the Guinness Logo and threatened to prosecute them if they did.
