    I said that a while ago in a separate thread. However it appears it doesn't cost very much less to make a dummy unit compared to a powered one

    A dummy unit would actually cost more than one with a motor
    Sounds silly I know but is has to do with a different chassis being produced for the dummy,
    The new mouldings dye alone would almost set off the cost of the motor
    It was looked at and it has been declared a non runner (sorry!)

    it would be simple enough to remove the motor and leave her a dummy, so i wouldnt worry about that aspect - lets hope she will go into production first!

    God the wallet is still recovering from the 071s,and I would
    like 077 as well as one CIE livery.That said the 121s are a
    Very nice prospect.Such a nice sight when double headed.

    I picked up a 210 for a nice price on Sunday - a chap had been given it as a present by somebody who thought it was 'a nice colour' - which it obviously is - but, it didn't really fit on a GWR layout.

    I might still have to get a grey 071 yet, though...
    My best work has been spread over many fields..

    Rich,
    Not sure about condition, but 124/134 will be in IE livery, hopefully with LED lights. 5 liveries for the 121 too, doubt PM will do every body variant but other things to remember are that when they were delivered they did not have the handrails along the 'bonnet'. Lots of mould differences and they are not cheap

    Cheers Ed. IE logo, led lights and blanked out cab windows was the condition I was referring to. There are a fair few external differences in the 141-181 locos that PM captured on the models.

    Rich,

    A picture of 124 with the short lived green arrow livery variation of its IR orange went up on the Facebook group 'Irish Railways Past and Present' a couple of days ago.

    Ed, I would imagine the early ones would be modelled without handrails wouldn't they? As these are, I think, separately fitted parts

    remember when paddy brought out the new grey livery 071? he couldnt remove the grab raild on the cab as it would have to be retooled. same applies to fittimg them i would imagine.....just my humble opinionName:  yellow-smiley-confused-emoticon.gif
