    Mine finally arrived today

    We've all seen how fantastic the models are but also a mention to the beautiful packaging! The boxes look really great, nice and solid too!

    I love mine too Pat, feel the love. The literature that comes packed with the wagons is a nice touch also, you rarely see it with packs of wagons.

    Rich,

    Well, I have finally received mine, in the sense that I have arrived at where I had them delivered to.

    A few points come to mind.

    1, The brakes seem to be seized in the off position.

    2, The ballast delivery gates are stuck shut - I was hoping to automate the brakes and the gates via DCC control.

    3, There seems to have been little thought given to fitting smoke units which could be used to simulate the dust from filling operations.

    Other than these points, they seem quite good - and the boxes are OK, too.

    Keep up the good work.

    My best work has been spread over many fields..

    We haven't been near this thread recently, and apologies for that!

    As you may have probably seen elsewhere, our ballast wagons have sold really rather well, and we can only thank you all for supporting this project with your purchases. We still have some packs of A, B and C left, but they are walking out the doors at a steady pace and will be gone soon enough.

    We really enjoy those of you who have sent us videos of the wagons in action on your layouts, and would love to see more, and or pictures that we can share on here and indeed our Facebook page. Eamonn Redmond kindly sent this one of the wagons in action on his superb new layout.



    We will be at the Stillorgan fair this Sunday with some for sale. Of course, you can also buy remaining stock at www.irishrailwaymodels.com/shop

    Are there any videos of the actual prototype ballast wagons laying and spreading ballast with ploughs? (I.e. As opposed to being in transit). Never seen a video that shows how they were operated.
