    I've enjoyed model railways since I got my Hornby Dublo 3 rail N2 with two wagons and a brake van for Christmash 1957. This developed into a 6' x 5' table layout in the living room. In the 1970's the loft was converted and I moved to 2 rail with a layout 19' x 10'.

    I joined the Ulster Model Railway Club in 1968 in Roseland Place, Belfast and remained a member until I moved to Cork in 1998.

    Myself and four friends set up Model Irish Railways in the early 1980s to supply 4mm kits, paints and transfers for NIR and Irish Rail prototypes.

    I have also worked in Northern Ireland Railways from 1976 to 1992 in the Secretariat and Operations Divisions.

    I have recently moved house so my layout is in storage. I am currently preparing a shed for the railway.

  1. Agree. For some reason I don't understand there appears to be a reluctance to name a shop that has caused problems. If one is sure of one's facts what is the point of telling us about a problem shop but keeping their identity secret? To clarify; this post refers to lots of posts highlighting problems and not just the OP of this thread.
  2. Deleted. Misread the ebay item
  3. Great value; just ordered two packs of Gypsum wagons. Can I get 40% off the mark 2s if I preorder on Black Friday? lol O
  4. Did it get to Dublin? It would look really good in black and tan livery.
  5. I hope you are not referring to the guy who cut the body freehand.
  6. Drat. You gave just cost me another £122. Those are seriously good looking coaches.
  7. You sound as if you condone the stone thrower. I hope I am wrong. I have seem at first hand the injuries caused to a train driver as a result of stone throwing. Not a subject for sarcasm.
  8. I had a metallic purple mk3 Cortina with black vinyl roof. Then someone stole it for use in a barricade!
  9. Great to have that it confirmed that the model has correct size wheels. Thank you KR Models for clarifying. LOL that's how rumours start
  10. Keith, you told me in your e mail that the wheels are 12.5mm. That is not the same as 11. 02 (sic) mm. If the model's wheels are indeed 11mm dia then that would be consistent with @jonhall's diagram above.
  11. I got this reply from KR Models. ignoring the fact that KR Models should know the diameter of the prototype wheels, can anyone help with Keith's question? "Hi Colin, Sorry for the delay but I had to find out the answer. In the actual wagon, what diameter do you think the wheels are? Kind Regards Keith Revell Managing Director KR Models Ltd"
