Modern Irish in N Gauge


Recommended Posts

Following a customer request for some vinyl overlays in N Gauge for some Irish Mark 3s and Class 201 diesels, I find myself getting rather bitten by the Irish bug, with quite a few vehicles now under conversion.

 

I've taken rather a fancy to the Mk3 push-pull stock with driving trailer...

The latest Mark 4 stock is too nice looking to resist. I've used ex-GNER Mark 4s as a basis.The side profile isn't quite right but I like the overall look of the coach.

Currently on the workbench is a Mark 4 driving trailer, which will require a little more ingenuity than Brasso and vinyl!

 

Here's the 201 fitted to a Valve Design / Shapeways body on a Dapol Class 66 chassis. It's not quite finished and needs glazing. Will probably re-appear in the later IR livery with full yellow ends.

It has become apparent that there is a seeming lack of any Irish N stock available from mainstream manufacturers. I wonder it it will actually take off at all?
