The threesome of NIR big GM's has been on there some little while now, so snapped up is probably putting it a bit generously.

Wow! Amazing looking beast.

£285, though.... and in British Rail lining, if the white shown in the picture is accurate in real life..... UTA lining was red and a straw colour. Didn't look a bit like that (maybe it's just the photo).

You're right about the lining, but there's a simple answer - dirty the engine a bit, then you'll not notice it!

Roderick has ignored my pleas to do an extra short run, so if any of you want one, you know what to do.

Jon,

Greetings from mid-Wales (working for GRJ)

There won't be! Sorry.

The loco is up to £311 now!

I must improve my burglar alarms.

Buy a Lhasa Apso (a noise machine of a dog) and a huge Mastiff or a Rottweiler, might cost you a bit in food, but your model railways will be safe 😃

Have just seen that Worsley Works do the basic bits in Brass, but you would still need wheels, gearbox and castings to build it, the only think putting me off is trying to find all the suitable castings required for such a model.

This isn't mine by the way, I just spotted it and knew some people were looking for one. I was lucky to get a plain black version on Ebay for less than the starting price of this auction. Just need some GNRi decals and numbers for it, then I really should build the SG kit I've had for years.

Regards to all

Here’s another GNR loco - if much less rare. It’s one of those magazine type collectables but actually looks not badly done - if a little pricey! Dundalk scrap line c1960!

Did they hang around that long to get into a Barry Scrapyard state?

As another thread on this forum points out, it really takes the Irish preservation scene to reduce a loco to that state! In all seriousness, it doesn’t take long for an unmaintained loco to get that way. Here’s dear old Lissadell, courtesy of Ernie’s Irish railway pics on Flickr...

And despite criticism of the lining (whether completely accurate or close enough to do in an otherwise very decent loco) it made STG420 which is 100 pounds over the original retail price !! Build them and the punters will come

The demand is there so how are we going to get Roderick Bruce to do a second run?

No idea, Stephen. I told him I'd find buyers for ten of them.

In effect, he told me that it's close on as much effort to get the parts for a hundred as ten. So he's getting on with a hundred or so of his next loco!

After seeing the price, I've bought a new burglar alarm!

Hi CoLin R - yes, Roderick does sell through eBay as well. Personally, if you're into GSWR / GSR / CIE to 1964 and haven't got one - you know what to do!

Well done, Ed, I don't think you'll regret it!

Now, what about a few wagons to pull behind it?

I pull a rake of bubbles, but that's a tad non-prototypical  ......

Thanks 

Well I have a rake of bubbles too 😁

Well the J15 stable is full for the moment - I'll be in touch soon for more wagons once the wallet recovers from a second J15 in a couple of months - not to mention a couple of weeks in France with my Boss (wife - of course!)

How are the Cattle wagons coming along and do you have any more single level beet corrugated in stock yet ?

Sorry, Ed, I didn't see this to reply.

Yes, I have a good stock of cattle wagon kits, ready to smuggle into Ireland for Blackrock (ah, it's before Brexit, not smuggling!). The stock is two thirds spoken for, so if any of you guys want them, PM me, or e-mail me. I'll update the cattle thread  shortly.

Sterling is £29 each , £140 for five, £275 for ten. Multiply that by the mid rate and you'll get my Euro price - €1.15 to Sterling a moment ago.

As for the Bullied corrugated opens - I have a decent stock ready, but they're by far my most popular wagon. H vans aplenty .......
