What would you like to see from us after the Tara Mines wagon? What do you think of what we've done so far? 

We're looking to constantly improve and learn from our customers. We would really appreciate if you could fill out this very short, confidential survey so we can give you what you want and find out how you buy your models.

Have you had your say in our survey yet??


We've been blown away with the volume of respondents to our survey so far! Thank you to everyone who has participated.


Do you want to have your say in what we do for future projects? Do you want to let us know how we can improve? What would you be prepared to spend on a top quality Irish wagon, coach or locomotive? Fill out our survey and let us know! Closing date for responses is this coming Wednesday at 9pm.

Hi Everyone, 


Firstly, I would like to extend a massive thank you on behalf of the Irish Railway Models team to everyone who completed our recent survey. 


We have collated your answers and suggestions and are taking them on board. Some of these answers will be discussed in specific posts in the coming days and weeks. 


In the meantime, we have analysed your feedback about what you would like to see next from us, and here are some of the most popular suggestions:


Leading the way (by a nose!) is a bogie container flat. Most were for the humble 42ft flat to recreate those classic Bell and Guinness liners as well as modern day spoil wagons, but there's also love for the 47ft flat as below too.




Right behind was the iconic double beet wagon. It appears many of you want to recreate scenes like below:

(And yes, there was a lot of calls for an A Class too!)


In third place was the Mark IIIs, with calls for an accurate Irish outline model of this iconic coach which we all miss.



Neck and neck in 4th is the fertiliser and bagged cement wagons; both widely travelled and uniquely Irish. Also both sadly missed.

There has also been a lot of calls for us to do the plough brake vans to compliment our ballast hoppers. We agree that they would look fantastic done to a highly detailed, ready to run model standard, book-ending a rake of our ballast wagons. Tempting... 




Speaking of our ballast wagons; our stocks are running quite low at this stage. Make sure you don't miss out before they're all gone as we wont be doing another run for quite a while. These running numbers wont be repeated. Secure the best Irish wagon model on the market before they run out and start going on EBay at a premium. https://irishrailwaymodels.com/shop/
