New Member says hello...and a question about Lima class 201 No 207

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

Hello All,


Firstly I'd like to say I'm delighted to join what seems like a friendly and knowledgeable group. I've been picking your collective brains anonymously on queries CIE/IR/IE for a while now so decided I really ought to become 'official' and join.

No doubt I'll have loads of queries. I'm building a layout set around 1979-94 or so based on the premise that Donegal had and kept a mainline which runs from Derry around to (eventually) Sligo via Letterkenny which is where my layout is set. A free hand with the station track plan, a wide selection of stock available and with a plausible excuse (to me at least) to run frequent NIR stuff as well.


Secondly, a question. I have recently acquired Lima 207 (don't panic, I have a MM Bachman IE example too; it's the early Enterprise livery that does it). At one end it carries the name 'River Boyne' - which you'd expect - but at the other it is named 'Abhainn na Life' rather than 'Abhainn na Bóinne'. I believe the loco named 'River Liffey' was actually no. 206. I think there was a production error on this one and I wondered if anyone has come across this before with this or any other class member?

Grateful for any insight.
