    You could possibly find they would jump at the chance to part with it and you could have a very large lay-out to play with at DCDR for rainy days.

    JB, Whereabouts would the DCDR put it? It takes up a few thousand square feet before even considering the room needed for visitors to walk around it...

    In theory it could go into the new carriage gallery, but in reality the only thing the DCDR would be in a position to take, or would possibly want, would be any BCDR models in it - and only then if the collection was going to be broken up (which would be a terrible shame).

    I wonder would a more radical approach be to make a new, smaller layout (possibly also with better scenery) and rotate use of the trains. Thus, a visitor could end up seeing Enterprises of 1947 and 1970, with a Donegal train chasing a T & D one on the narrow gauge bit on one visit, and on another visit a DART, a MGWR goods train, a Causeway tram and a pair of 121s with a Craven set!

    Any thing would be better than the lights on and off mutter mutter set up that was used at Malahide, it was a shambles on busy days plus no pics and an attitude problem from some staff when some visitors complained they could,nt see as it was a sheep herding exercise with the playing with lights so my moan over.
    Any decent set-up run by a sensible person(s) would be better than nothing even if it is a smaller lay-out compared to the original.

    Couldn't agree more, hidden agenda. Personally I think the models would be seen to better advantage if they took it in turns to run on a smaller layout. I wonder if the actual ones originally made by Cyril Fry got a run in recent times? I remember seeing 071-hauled trains on it - they wouldn't have been made by Fry!
