Question

Hello,

I'm looking at buying an 071 class either MM0088 (CIE original) vs. MM0086 (CIE Supertrain):trains:. I cannot determine what the difference is between these liveries with CIE "broken wheel" logos. Maybe Supertrain is a little deeper orange:confused:? My only frame of reference right now is having some baby GMs in "Supertrain" livery 161sa & 182.

Can anyone offer an explanation or a little background on this if possible.

Thank you,

Kevin

It's the same class of loco; the difference is that the 'original' features the as-delivered colour scheme, which as Mayner says, had the wrong shade of orange, plus an all-white 'broken wheel' CIÉ logo.

 

CIÉ gradually fixed these issues after the 071s entered service and this is what Murphy's 'Supertrain' version represents.

As has been said the as delivered locos were in a shade of orange that had a brown hue to the over all color scheme. The as delivered locos were also fitted with Sinclair Antennas (the black antenna behind the cab at the mechanical end of the model) but lost these later. The NIR 111 class locos still carry Sinclair Antennas. MM really went all out on detail for these models and the later liveried models have yaw dampers on the bogies.

 

Rich,

112 got new LED marker lights fitted while it was on long term loan to IE and got replacement cab windows from a scrapped 141 and these are featured on the model. 111 and 113 still have the as delivered marker lights to this day while all of IE's 071s and other locos got LED marker lights.

Another minor difference in the two CIE liveries is that the 'as delivered' livery had the headlight surrounds painted in the same shade of orange as the rest of the loco. Generally, CIE painted the headlight surrounds white on their locos, and the 071's got white surrounds when they were repainted.
