Thanks! We are looking at 8 different running numbers over 4 packs of two wagons. :)

Will the fertiliser bag loads have printed bags as per the prototype or what's the plan for them? Actually have one of these bags lying around somehwere if you need it for detailing the load.

The wagons look amazing! I'd say the bundle deal is going to be popular on these!

On the subject of the bags... The individual bags wouldn't really be visible on the loaded pallet, as they were wrapped in a protective polythene cover...

They'd got nicely behind an A, BnT not yet in Supertrain in 1974

or if I recall you have a BnT141 equally good

CIE B142 at Albert Quay.

The albatros yellow bagged fertilzer seems to have been bagged in clear pallet bags initially but a white cover with Albatross logo later on

Missed my Copyright overlay off this one! However it got me thinking or maybe I'm just having a 'Senior' moment. Was this traffic originating from New Ross and manufactured by a different company i.e. not Irish Fertiliser?

Think from around 1970 right up to 2002/3, open to correction. A good solid 30 years at least.

It was " Albatross" fertilizer in New Ross Ernie - passed it every month on the way to my Grandad in Waterford in the back of my dad's bright orange Ford Avenger......yes it was the 70s.....yes the only thing louder was the geansai i was wearing....

Corr!, I made a loud gasp when I saw the piccies. Having made a few of the MIR jobbies I can say these are outstanding and light years ahead or what was previously on offer. Hats off to ye lads.

The Fertilizer mainly ran from IFI plant in Arklow to various parts of the country and on occasion from Albatross in New Ross ,Gouldings in Askeaton via Foynes and even from Goulding’s in Farranfore .

Hi Pops,

We did look at opening doors but the mechanism on the real ones (they slid back into the partitions of the wagon when opened!) was just too complex and cost prohibitive to do in OO, so they are fixed.

They were introduced in 1974 and withdrawn in 2003 (hard to believe it's 16 years ago!)

I'm sure we will have stock of these in 2020 so you can get them with next years budget! :)

Every compartment will come loaded, they could be removed but we would urge caution around that and not really recommend it!

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Just a thought Fran, if you put a wee bit of metal in the bale of fertiliser bags, we could get them out with a magnet .......

Well, not bad - TWO Merchant Navies I've had runs behind, plus one a`waiting restoration (35010).

35023 gave me 94mph on the last Saturday of Southern steam, my second "ninety" with her.

A rake of four will be about the price of a single 35xxx loco! I can get rid of some Euros at Blackrock!
