Seven Ages - Some Irish RTR Coach milestones

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

Seven ages of CIE coaches I've collected over the years starting back in 1972 with a hand repaint of a Hornby LMS maroon coach I was so frustrated there were no Irish trainsets available back then. Then some early Lima and Hornby stuff that was rather crude before Bachmann and Murphy Models came to the rescue in the more recent past. I seemed to have missed the entire Lima mk2 and mk3 coach era.


I still vividly remember the excitement back in 1972 mixing humbrol paints in an effort to brush on a shade of CIE tan/orange. I was determined as a youngster to have at least one Irish looking toy train.
