Kinda expecting Hunslets to be announced at some stage. You got the coaches coming out, The engines have a couple of liveries so would fit the IRM MO I expect.

so a quick look reveals 6 at least x 3 is 18 locos!!

NIR Maroon Yellow Chevron No NR Logo and large and small NR Logo.  3 Options 

NIR Mid Blue with Red Band.

NIR Mid Blue with Red Chevron Small logo

NIR Dark Blue with small yellow panel Large Logo

BR Green and blue version optional.

1 with wooden box.

Ulster Transport museum special edition

and in 2017, Probably putting 2 and to many together...

Fair enough, I would have thaught with the only 3 in service. It would have had to wait a while for its turn 

 

(granted there were only 3 800 class locos too, and I’d hope as much as anyone else they will get RTR representation)

Just to clarify one point, often possibly misunderstood:

The maroon livery only had the one type of logo - models have appeared in many places with yellow transfers on them which are wrong. The logo was the original upright NIR one, which was fold with white lining around it - the same transfer that they put on the sides of carriages and railcars - and three WT class steam engines!

In maroon livery they never had yellow logos of any sort, lined or otherwise, or of any size. The blue livery appeared with the new "slanted" logo - the slanted version was never on any maroon engine.

Nothing on NIR ever had a yellow logo in any livery.

I guess it is good to dream of an rtr version, I now have 3 working to completion , maroon, blue small logo NIR and blue yellow ends black roof, large logo NIR.   These all on Bachmann class 20 chassis so quiet and powerful - unlike the real things.  

Hopefully as a missing link in NIR evolution along with MK2B coaches in blue and Maroon  they will find favour at IRM Towers.

Very distinctive sound - I remember them brand new and they had a sort of high-pitched "whistling" sound - very different indeed to the hoarse sore-throat sound of an AEC or MED railcar which surrounded them on local services.........

LINESIDE BUILDINGS ETC.

I have been working on some items that you would see along the sides of the railway and in rail yards.

this is the first one I have done.

It is called REB which stands for Relocatable Equipment Building with the AWS relay box all made with

plastic sheet and the Telecom tower is part kit and part made by me.

it's surprising how many of these are around when you start looking.

Plus 3 vans with IE logo's from Railtec.

Oh very nice work. Really looks the part. Are the transits prototypical for 1995 or are the later or freelance? I have looked for pics of similar but only ever found plain blue and red transits. Be cool if these existed in reality.

Thanks everyone, glad you liked these.

There are more bits and pieces to come when I get them finished.

I'm not to bothered about dates for vehicles or rolling stock, if I like it it's in.

The MK3 BR Transit van is easier to do as there is less writing on it to remove.

They come up on eBay sometimes, so keep checking.
