Aaaaarrrrggghhhh what did yiz post those pictures of all the different liveries for!

Now I’m going to have to buy at least one and maybe two or three more!!

Incidentally, has 027 got an 071-style white roundel, or is it just the illustration?

Also on the artwork, I think its 056. It has bright IR orange roof and CIE tan below the black band. Is this how it will be produced, very interesting detail if so.

 

Think yous have 036 and 054 mixed up on the site artwork.

The darker shade below the black band is the dayglo panels on the front of the loco....

No, not on 056. I know what the dayglows look like.

056 is in supertrain with IR and no dayglows. It has 2 different shades of orange in the artwork.056.JPG.e69ba9dcd72540a896fc7cd405cb9e21.JPG

You're right.... It's listed as.. 'in Irish Rail on Supertrain Livery' on the website.....

Thanks, just that it stands out on the site next to 027 in the same livery cause 027 is all same shade while 056s brighter roof jumps out.

It' be the same colour above and below the band, it's just the render.

Yes, neither an A nor anything else had the “tanner” and the “more orange” shades together - it was one or the other.

Calling IRM - might it be a runner in the future that the A classes and any further releases be they STEAM (yes please!) or diesel. will have the option of a sound chip fitted as with  the Deltics across the great divide? :confused:

Agree with many of those suggestions @jhb171achill. Extremely relieved to see no ICRs on your wishlist, and the nostalgic AEC set gets past my personal DMU filter because it was such an important part of the CIE era.

Lovely collection Ernie. The pics in Waterford. The A pulling the ferts with beets parked next to to them and the orange bubbles stand out in particular. All will be available and some are already available to recreate those scenes.

Rich,

Did NIR not have an A class?

You're not that far off. NIR purchased 6 C Class locomotives from CIE between 1986/87. Similar in appearance, but a smaller less powerful version of the A.

Which of course will compliment the A in the next few years from the lads in IRM towers!. and in NIR blue will go equally well with their class 80 ..... well hopefully as they have yet to announce  the next grand project - how many liveries and I have started on my second kit..
