Another section completed one more to do in the station area. Hurray😁






C'est incredible. This should be on public display running trains somewhere like the Fry collection museum in Malahide. While on a different planet as regards scale realism compared to the old O gauge layout, it does have echos of the old castle layout with its elevated city sections. I don't know if this layout is transportable, but it would be a great shame if it could not be exhibited somewhere to the public one day. Words are not adequate to describe this layout's merits.

Yet again, this has me absolutely speechless. I've known this area well since the early 1960s. Your model - it seems inadequate to call it a "model" or a "layout" just sucks me (and others here, I know) right back to those days... pint in Becky Morgans, anyone?

All about the Padraig Pearse now :cheers:

Lockdown working well it seems? All clouds have silver linings and Barrow Street is one of them!

I worked in an office in the area for a year or two before departing for New Zealand and explored the area between Grand Canal Dock and Pearse Station during lunch time walks, the residential side streets between Pearse Street & Grand Canal Street tended to be eerily quiet with little pedestrian traffic during the daytime almost like todays lockdown. 

The authentic street signs, street furniture and billboards cry out Dublin City in the early 21st Century
