Autoballasters

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

After I purchase some 121's and replenish funds, I want to try get some Irish Rail autoballasters. Im leaning towards getting the bachmann version and getting them resprayed.

What are the best to get that are most IR prototypical? does anybody have any guidance on who would do respraying?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Bachmann flat and round top are the same except for the flat top. The Irish ones are round top, and the flat tops can be converted with some styrene and filler before painting. Lots of decals on those models!

Is there any chance of Mark's Models doing another run? I know there were original plans to more of the un-powered to help complete the rakes. Was it one powered end to 3 or 4 un-powered wagons?

If there was another run I would happily take 4 or 6..
