Finally made it today to see Bleach Green, the excellent piece in this month's British Railway Modelling having whetted the appetite. Was great to be invited behind the scenes and to meet Colm and Ken whose modelling sets a high standard for us all, not to mention giving due recognition to fascinating period in local railway history, when steam gave way to diesel in Northern Ireland.

 

Will post pics on Flikr soon, here's a taster, plus some of 'Lisburn' & O Gauge GN steam.

Thanks Andy! Unfortunately with the flash off and light levels low, the pics are a bit 'muddy' but anyway, they're all on Flikr now:

Thank you for posting these photos 33lima, it is great to see them.

 

There was supposed to be a model railway show at our local festival in Mohill yesterday but when I went along I was told that the layout had gone to Carrickfergus instead! Apparently the owner had though the Mohill exhibition was the Saturday before! Anyway, your photos have given me an opportunity to see what I had missed and who knows, they may be in Enniskillen in September.

Like you Andy, I have always wanted to see Bleach Green in the flesh. We may very well be able to do this in 2016, as I have it on good authority that Bleach Green is to appear at Modelrail Scotland 2016. Looking forward to seeing it.

Thanks David! I remember Colm posted somewhere that Bleach Green would be coming to the mainland twice in 2016 and I was hoping that Glasgow would be one of the shows,so that is good news

I can confirm that Bleach Green will - unless fire flood or pestilence intervene -  be at Model Rail Scotland in February 2016, and Warley in November. There are currently no plans to show it anywhere else.
