KIRLEY JUNCTION – CIE Yard Crane.

 

I first spotted pictures of a CIE Yard Crane in ‘Rails Through North Kerry’ by J Beaumont & D Carse.

Then Patrick Dillan made a model using plasticstrut.  I decided to make one myself but then Owen O’Neill started showing his creations in 3D Printing  I asked him if he could do a crane and provided the few photos I had.

Sure enough, he came up with a kit which I got the other day and put it together.  Many thanks Owen for a great result.

KIRLEY JUNCTION – UTA MED Set

 

I made this Worsley Works kit back in 2012 and it was one of my first attempts at soldering.

I started on a refurbishment in Dec and it spent 10 days in a bath of brake fluid but still took a lot of work to remove the green paint.

It was also a chance to re-solder the sides which are made up of 9 separate panels.

It’s now at a stage to wash and prime before re-painting.
