If I recall you can pay with PayPal which you just sign up for and sometimes you can avail of PayPal credit over 6 months to give you a chance to spread the cost maybe?

Unfortunately PayPal credit isn't offered in Ireland yet (we can offer it on Accurascale as it's available in the UK) It does seem very handy as well!

Not my era - but gave the piggy bank a good shake and ordered a pack!

I might have to get a new delivery address as the commercial invoice on the outside - while understandable from a business point of view - is starting to attract the attention of the customs authorities at Chez Edo........"another package for you eh...."..........god help me when the A Class order lands........

I get mine dropped to work,  works nice and simple,  Just start to sweat when I have to remove them from car to secure location in the dead of night.

Before I used to get away with, 'It's Just More Weathering Stuff love some chap dropped to me'    LOL!

 I don't have any Grey 071's but have the ol black n Silver Jobbie so can just scrape an excuse there to get some.

Way too modern for me but many will appreciate the yellow PW. Will hold out for earlier Taras, Ballasts, coaches etc

I think you just need approval as a partner and then you can give it as an option to pay?

looked at the site the buyer has to be approved as well each  transaction and theres costs as well which really dont make it worthwhile as they push the model prices up

For those curious as to what can haul them, the list can include 8208 in the unique Enterprise livery, worked a rake down North Wall-Portlaoise on Friday 8 June 2012. Something a little different to a grey 071!

Also 216 in Belmond livery on loan to NIR along with the wagons.

How many wagons would have formed a standard rake?

Was there minimum / maximum number?

 

Typically 8 to 12 depending on use. Right now a rake of 7 is working the DSE line the past week. NIR hired out a rake of 16 in the past year or so. 

18 is the max that can work in a rake under the 36 TEU rule exactly like the freight flats.

They wont! 

As there hasnt been pre-orders they will take longer to sell out, so you should all be nice and safe. We will sound klaxons if they get close to sell out.

Cheers!

Even though these seemed to be pretty clean in most of the photos I have seen of them, a little weathering would add some realism to the garish PW yellow

Spoilt with Motive Power

 

Yes that's a lovely deep shade of yellow carrying the sleepers. Not too hard on the eyes. Not really my era, but yet again they look another set of superb models.

Hi everyone,

@Flying Scotsman 4472 very kindly sent us some pics of his weathered spoil wagons to share with you which include his custom made sleeper load to reflect the current duties the real wagons are operating on between North Wall and Wexford on flood defence duties! The weathering truly brings these wagons to life!

Two photos taken in Portarlington station this morning of the real spoil wagons, 24/09/2020,

Considering the wagons have been in service for a good few years,the bogies and under frame are relativity clean, but the inside of the boxes are heavily weathered.
