Noel Posted October 28, 2014 Share Posted October 28, 2014 (edited) Another old rolling stock item dug out from storage Please don't slag too much My first repaint to CIE colours - over four decades ago when I was about 12 or 13 I was desperate to have some Irish trains to run so decided to repaint my LMS train set coaches Hand painted Triang LMS coach - I actually remember mixing multiple samples of humbrol paints and test patches to try and get a reasonable CIE tan colour. Can't believe I hand painted the white lining - My hands couldn't manage that anymore. It used to look like this LMS toy coach - a lot better (not my photo) The actual body shell seems a prototypical botch job, a sort of mk1 shell with makey up side panels pretending to be old world LMS. Don't think any such coach actually ever existed. What will I do with this now? Could convert it into an imaginary presidential coach. I vividly remember seeing President Childers sitting comfortably in an armchair on the then presidential coach about to depart Heuston station some time in the early 1970s, but that was a much earlier style coach and shorter.
