A 39

Sweet pics, thanks for sharing! The ITG did a great job on her. I just wish there was a good model of the As, they are my favourite Irish loco along with the 071s. I just can't deal with the Silverfox one sadly!

 

I know what you mean,but I suppose the SF A and C class are not bad when you consider the Q kits and

Lima class 33 repaint.

I remember that engine room floor was very slippy

I remember you wanting to weather A39 ROFL.

The ITG have done a fab job on her,as you can see with the condition of the engine room.

A lot heavy cleaning and painting,and the same can be said for 226 in Carrick as the work is

simply fantastic when you consider how long restoration is going on with limited manpower.

Do you know if 146 is going to stay in the IE livery Eamonn.

The last ITG journal did not mention any change in 146s livery from what I

remember Rich,but did show the repairs that are ongoing to her front.

She got a fair old slap in the puss,which has also shown some corrision work

that was discovered when panals were cut away.The other cab will be checked

in due course as well.

nice pics eamonn- id say you have sleepless nights thinking of that day you were there! what kind of mishap happened to 146?

I dont know the full story on what happened to 146,but she did get a entire full front of the cab

rewelded back in place.The day that I was there with Anthony and Keith (Mrsound Guy) was a

stunningly fab day.I was in such high spirits that on the way back we got some grub in Anthonys

house and I could not eat anything due to the rush of A39 to the head.
