A man with a shovel back in the day. And he wasn't even wearing yellow socks.....

 

I was friendly with a plate layer as a teenager, he used to be a farm worker that I knew, We walked many miles on the line , chatting, They developed a great gait, being able to swing the special wedge sledge in one hand as he walked by without breaking his stride .over the other shoulder he carried a fishplate spanner.

 

no shovel though , that required a bunch of lads !

 

but compared to a tamper .......

Kieran,

 

You'll need to register here to get full details. Not automated, but worth the wait.

 

http://www.ontrackplant.com/sightings-of/ireland or http://www.ontrackplant.com/sightings-of/northern-ireland

 

Not many are 00, the bachmann tamper in particular looking well below even H0 scale to be fair. More like 1:100 almost compared with a 1:76 model.

 

The brittania pacific model is really very close to the Irish prototype, but the roof needs some revision, along with the addition of pneumatic hoses etc, a job you'd tackle with ease. It's the best resin casting I've ever come across, really is top of the line production. If I can dig out photos of the one I irish-ised, I'll post them later.

The other ones available are the Veissman tamper - really looks superb, closest to an Irish vehicle is 742 (don't hold me to that, I'll check later.

Lastly, if some of the younger members on here want to see what and early "Netscape" type website from about 20 years ago looks like, its Linea Models in Italy.

 

http://www.lineamodel.it/benvenuti_in_lineamodel.htm

 

the kits are top of the range H0, but pricey. the APT model is is €500. They have other per way stuff, but that site is giving me a headache.

 

HTH.

I'm delighted with my Viessmann model Kieran,

Although it's HO scale as can be seen from this photo it is always used during a perway possession of the track so there are never OO gauge trains nearby when it's working.

Richie is correct in saying that its closest match would be IE tamper 742.

Thanks Richie, on the DCKits site they mention 2 models, the Plasser 08-16 C80RT and C100-RT Tamping Machine. Which one is closest to one to the Irish prototype?

The only difference between the two is a ballast cleaning plough, minor details, that come etched which you can use, or not. Plasser 08-16 C80RT is the one. I'll dig out some photos for you.

Thanks Richie, nice job on the 07-16 Tamper. It seems only the next series, 08-16 Tamper is available in kit form now.

 

Sorry Kieran, that's a pity, but I just notice that if you filled in one of the gangway crosswalk openings, you'd have vehicle IE 742, or as close as. It appears to be the same designation. Defo going to invest in a kit.
