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.
Order placed. Many thanks Keith.
I received an e mail today from Antics saying that they had cancelled my order as they "could not supply"
Gareth of Trains4U has come to the rescue. Thank you Gareth.
