Got some more work done on the kit yesterday,and stuck on most of the brass

etches.I got the tanks off the deltic donar chassis and now I have to see what

the measurements are to get a good fit.What I plan to do is to cut and shut the

deltic chassis to suit the B101 kit.I know the included brass chassis could be

used but I am think of sticking the brass chassis over the deltic chassis for

extra regidity,but I dont know if this will work.I will have to make plastic card

sides for the fuel tanks and use the deltic weights to help in the structure

being strong.Some of the cab windows will need some work in order to

get them straight.

I just finished my Cement wagons and I am delighted with them.

Fair play to Irish freight models for superb wagons.

I have always wanted a few of these wagons as I remember

them passing and unloading in Enniscorthy Station over the years.

The rake looks cool behind the baby GM Eamonn. Very nice models.

 

Rich,

Yes I love the rake too,especially after watching a video

on YouTube of a cement with a baby GM on the Limerick

Ballybrophy line.

The tail lamps are not powered,and I got them

On e bay from spring side models.The wagons came

in kit form with chassis and I had to build and hand

paint them.They are not normally sold as kits so I am

Glad to be allowed to get them.They have a lot more

detail than the MIR kits.I have to thank Anthony for the

dirty 156 and where to get the tail lamps.

Very tasty lamps... and lovely looking rake Eamon.

 

Shame to see money having to leave the country though....

 

I'll do 4 for €4, unpainted, but with the red filters and post for €1.50 to Ireland or €2.00 rest of the world.....any type

Square coach lamp

Round loco lamp

Modern lamp

 

:D

Great work on those cements Eamonn - a fantastic and authentic set of rolling stock. I remember them well making their clickety clack sounds over jointed track with a GM or A at the head.

What a list!

Which ones are most 'irish'?

 

I'd say DA99/5 are the ones that would be best suited to you Stephen. SSM do a nice kit now and they can be made working. The Springside ones are of an earlier type to the LED ones that IE use now. I think with most layouts running in day time settings the ones Eamonn has recommended would be fine. They used to do a set with one red lamp and the rest were clear so be careful.

Lovely weathering on the brakevan, it truly looks like it has gone through the wars.

 

Is that an SSM oil lamp I see?? ;)
