4x Bachmann 2A coaches (2x IR / 2x IE) €240

3x Lima flying snail coaches  €80

Lima NIR 201 class, 209  €120

 

May be of interest to somebody here. Based in Dundrum, Dublin

I saw those earlier, flying snail coaches are tempting

Two lots of galway livery mk2s up on ebay. Three lima in one lot and a MM genny and restaurant in the other for anyone who is interested 

Did you see the prices for them, though?

Absolute joke.

€110 per coach:

What do some people be smoking?

And look at this little cracker:

Bargain, six coaches for the same price as three 121's!!!!

Ive been so tempted by those six for weeks now. They've been up a good while. But after repainting another rake of mk3s plus I've three mk2s on the way to do it would be a more want then need purchase for me

For somebody with enough skill, you could buy and repaint some British outline Bachmann's and Lima's for a lot less.

Here's hoping!

GSWR bogie second and Midland 6-wheelers on order........

Laminates and Park Royals, then we can talk about 6 wheelers 😉

I suppose we're getting ahead of ourselves if we start talking about those 6 wheel bogie coaches..

IRM coaching stock is well overdue given the level of success of it freight offerings. The problem is that unless IRM do some earlier stock my cash will be going to a couple of rakes of MM Supertrain Mk3s and suburbans.

MM is also potentially planning a new run of cravens and I'd certainly take a few of them with new running numbers for sure. I have a feeling there would be a fair demand for early single stripe ones TBH.

Hopefully can dump my old Lima Execs and Silverfox driving trailer for an upgrade but most of all would love to see some proper 1950s built 'laminate' stock which hung around for thirty years.

Am sure IRM will be expanding into coaching stock soon enough.

mk4 sets or 1950 laminates or indeed park royals Would be equally welcome, combined with the MM mk3 that would leave modellers with a full deck or Irish rolling stock covering 1950 right up today. Then all that remains are h-vans and beet wagons. Lots to look forward to. The forthcoming A’s will look great hauling the MM mk2d supertrain livery stock as launched in 1972 with CIEs first modern marketing campaign, I can still hear the TV adverts in my head and remember the awe when I first saw the spaceship like matching supertrain A and Brel coaches with their similar roof profiles, the Irish TGV we all thought back then but 75mph on 100yo broken rail was fast enough Back then to have Sparkes flying off rosary beads every time the train clattered over points. Happy days spoilt for choice.
