Evening all,


A wee report.


Old Blarney was invited to The Cupar Model Railway Show this week end. We in the Perth Model Railway Club had a most enjoyable time there and Old Blarney came away with yet, another Trophy.


We ran a general Irish Railways theme but for "Ye Bhoys in Nordern Irelund", I decided to run five Enterprise sets. GNR 206, (Colm Flanigan) with six coaches in Painted Teak, one reciprocal CIE set in Dark Green and Eau-de Nil livery, but had to cheat on the motive power and use a Woolwich at its head. These sets were followed three NIR sets. Hunslet Maroon, with matching coaches, Hunslet Blue, with Blue Grey coaches and last but not least a Light Blue 111, No 111 (Murphy Models) with the blue yellow and black coaches, (Murphy Models Lima Coaches). Each Diesel locomotive is fitted with sound decoders.


I also ran my new LMS NCC Mogul, built by Colm Flanigan, this too has a sound decoder, and it along with its rake of LMS NCC coaches was a popular set, attracting many comments.


Provincial Wagons were much in evidence too, mixed trains of Cattle Wagons and CIE and GSR Coaches. A long rake, 27 wagons of GNR, BCDR, Downshire, UTA, Bullied and GNR Guards Van.


The RPSI were represented too by a set of Six Coaches pulled by my Colm Flanigan No 4.


Should any Model Railway Club wish to Have Old Blarney, at their Show, Please contact me.


David White.
