Not so sure about them not being popular models in this livery. They were just as hard to track down as any of the other 500-unit runs.


 

the era the old 071 freight livery is  modelling isint as perused anymore. It’s somewhere near in-between just old enough to be too old for present Era modeling but not old enough to be nostalgic. 
 

mind you I think it’s the worst livery on the 071. But to each there own

Don't confuse the model with the real-life era.

In the real world, painting an 071 in silver was as stupid as painting an A Class silver. The 071's were gorgeous in that livery, albeit very impractical and very short-lived.

When it comes to the 071 models, the black and silver (was it nicknamed the Engineer's livery or something?) sold out long before the IE livery, which in turn sold out long before the ST livery.

Nothing for anybody to get butthurt over, that's fact, not opinion.

Marks Models couldn't shift the IE livery 071's, while at the same time I had to scrape the dregs to get a silver and black one from DC Kits. Sold me a dud, but at least I got one, and I'll probably rope some poor sap like murphaph into fixing it for me one day.

And, the ST livery hung around well after the IE's had gone.

So, popularity of 071 liveries...

Freight grey and NIR were half-runs, I think, so it's hard to get a fair comparison. People bought them even though they were out of era, just to have. Nearly sure that Noel, who favours the BT era, has a freight grey 071.

That aside, IR won hands down, then silver and black, then IE, with ST trailing.

the 071 situation is absolutely depressing for anybody getting into the hobby again or for the first time.

 

Im sure the forthcoming IRM one is going to sell like hotcakes, eh?

A few items that may be of interest...

The IRM Spoils have been for sale for months and months, so the seller may be willing to accept offers:

So €412 for the loco
      €40 postage
  &  €130 tax

€582 Sweet heart of Jesus!

It's kind of disgusting at those prices.

Three new A's or a used 071...

And that's assuming that there's no red mist.

john paul strikes again 🤯

 

Seriously, leave em for modellers to buy and stop hoarding them as if they appreciate faster than crypto currency.

 

Have had to resign myself to a life of "no 071 until IRM decide to make one" (ARE YOU LISTENING IRM????????) 😅

 

141/181 that im JUST ABOUT willing to pay for are still within my grasp, but probably not for long, and im coming back into "no big purchases for another few months" mode. 

 

agh, the perils of an irish GM modeller...... at least i am amassing a healthy 121 fleet.

That they may be left with them. 

Even if I could afford them I wouldn't buy them.

Couple of Eric Vick European Haulage trucks on eBay:

https://www.ebay.es/itm/304498948929

https://www.ebay.es/itm/155011988699

And a few Barline Ireland / UK / Europe trucks, but they're a bit more expensive:

https://www.ebay.es/itm/224996190199

https://www.ebay.es/itm/363810281597

Iggy Madden Galway truck, too:

https://www.ebay.es/itm/255433635242

As @murphaph pointed out to me, the Iggy Madden trailer has a very nineties look to it, even if the cab doesn't.

Tinnelly tipper says 1/43 but looks smaller (nice mirror selfie, too) :

EuroLines Van Hool has an Irish look to it:

Wasnt that just one or two they had lost down the back of the couch though and they were gone within hours?

 

Always opening those links DJ and thinking "hmm thats not too bad" until i am overwhelmingly dissapointed by the words "0 Pujas" as i realise whats going on.

Pretty sure that was a bit cheeky of Marks a year or two ago. They listed several of the Irish steam locos as a warehouse find, but had less than they listed. I "bought" a few only to find out a day or two later that they didn't exist.

Try a sniper, Sean. I have one added to Firefox. Snipe my max and walk away. Very grateful to told about snipers by @murphaph

Add another 50 to post it, plus whatever the tax man decides, then suddenly theres actually a cheaper one for sale within Ireland.

I purchased Murphy Models Cravens coach MM1504 on ebay.co.uk and received it today to find a 1533 coach in a MM1504 box. It's re-packaged ready to return to the seller tomorrow. If anyone looking at buying a MM1504 coach just beware in case this comes up for sale again.  Picture in ad was not clear enough to see the number on the side of the carriage, this is picture I took.image.thumb.jpeg.55202d126f28d74b22ffc1086311e2b6.jpeg

@Seanwas looking for Cravens coaches before. Might be worth dropping him a PM.

 

Delighted to find 171 for sale, but sadly priced at three times what it's worth... Same seller as that Cravens bundle:

Box lids probably put on wrong boxes by accident so worth getting clear pics of carriages to check numbers before buying( I should take my own advice...). Cost of some Cravens carriages on ebay are eye watering.

Just so you know. Anpost are billing for customs on packages sent from the north right now. Currently have one in appeal. Not sure if I'm just unlucky or the NI protocol doesnt matter anymore as I sent in the appeal over a week ago and have heard nothing.

I don't think they're supposed to be doing that - although - for many years, while A Post treats the north as local post, Royal Mail treats the south as "international". That's bad enough, but comparing like with like, Royal Mail charges (even internally) are well above those of An Post to start with!

Im pretty sure they are not, hence the appeal, conveniently they are swamped with a backlog of appeals at the moment. so It would have made a lot more sense to just pay them the 9 euro.

 

Between this and addresspal making it up as they go and not being able to prove the money has actually gone to customs it does make me a little bit suspicious of where that money is going. Im not the only person online who shares these suspicions. 🤯
