First layout in 25 years

Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone. My younger son is also enjoying this new (for him) hobby.


I know, there is an amazing range of Irish railway stock now. It is actually what is spurring me on I think! I do still have plenty of old Hornby buildings, platforms and some nice BR locos from my young fella days, but I dont want to get rid of them so I am just going to blend them in!


I got three BR mark 2 coaches from ebay for a song with the intention of spraying orange and black, but I am not sure if they are the right type of mark 2 ... didn't realise there were 2a 2b 2c 2d ... oh well

thanks lads. Apart from the Irish locos the stock is all years old. As are the buildings - cant reallly justify replacing them at the mo . Oh ... and that big tornado loco and pullmans were going cheap in argos and i just couldnt resist. . .


I am gradually replacing the steel track. The new track is such an improvement - seems to conduct so well.


I am nearly settled on the track layout now. . . trial and error.
