  1. Just want to say what an excellent service from Steve at Railtec transfers. Placed order Sunday evening , a couple of quick emails on Monday to confirm delivery address and transfers received today (Weds) in the West of Ireland. Regards, John
  2. Hi Fran, Will Marks Models in Dublin be stocking? Regards. John
  3. A lot better now. Thanks for that. *edited to correct spelling.
  4. From my experience it has nothing to do with personal browsing history. The ads that keep appearing have no relation or links to any websites that I have looked at recently or in the past. And yes it is very frustrating seeing all these irrelevant ads appear, I would not mind so much if they where model railway related.
  5. I keep seeing lots of ads recently that are no way related to model railways in any way. If its based on google history then that is a load of b***%&s as the ads that I see bear no resemblance or relation to any websites that I have looked at. I did try and attach a screen grab shot but for some reason unable to paste the link.
  6. It would be nice for Hornby to release a refurbished 50 in all over blue, I think there were originally five or six? of them before the large logo livery was adopted.
  7. You should have no problem with Gaugemaster. I've got an Model D controller that I purchased around 1987/88. The direction switch on one of the track controllers stopped working in one direction so I emailed Gaugemaster and they said to send it to them and they would look into it. I posted off to Gaugemaster and I had the controller back within two weeks of posting from Ireland. They replaced the switch free of charge and the only thing that I had to pay for was to post the controller to Gaugemaster. This was December 2018 so my controller is approx. 30 years old. Regards John
  8. Back in the day you did not sign for the route until you knew all the pubs....
  9. Obviously went the "Great Way Round"
  10. Has the red, green & gold livery been applied correctly?
  11. Yes that's correct. Dave's baseboards are made to a very high standard.
  12. Had a great time in Cultra at the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum model railway day with my SVLR layout which was very well received by the show visitors. It was a very good show with all the various layouts set amongst the 12" - 1' exhibits.

  14. I will be at the Cultra Model exhibition Saturday 10th November with the SVLR. Look forward to seeing you there. https://www.nmni.com/whats-on/model-railway-day
  15. Not too often as far as I know. When I was working on HST's over a 20 years time span I think I only ever had to split a set on two occasions. Using the power cars for shunting was quite interesting as you could not see when setting back and you had to rely on a competent person to relay the signals to you.
  16. There is a three page article in the November 2018 issue of Continental Modeller outlining details and improvements to Campbell Riverside. Regards, John
  17. Owd Bob, Like you for some obscure reason I chose 008 as my favourite 50 too though 50039 was the first Hoover that I had for haulage! Regards. John
  18. Would often pop in during my Midland Mainline days, (just enough time when working HST's, xx38 arrival [i think] & xx32 return departure). Even if I did not intend to buy anything I would quite often leave the shop with something.
  19. For those interested, list of Exhibits and Traders for the Belfast Show this coming weekend. Belfast Model Railway Show 2018exhibits descriptions.docx
  20. I currently have a very pale green in my train room, may change it to white at sometime in the future.
  21. I will be at the Ulster Model Railway Club exhibition in Belfast with my Swanbourne Vale Light Railway next weekend 25th - 26th August. Look forward to seeing you if you're able to make the show. https://www.facebook.com/events/203070900251174/ Regards, John

  23. Hi John, What wheelsets did you use for replacements on 50035? I know there's Ultrascale, but wondered if there is an alternative. Regards John
