Description Model Scales
     
Locos    
Cockerill type IV vertical boiler steam loco 

(5ft 3in gauge version)

Built by Cockerill in Belgium. The type 4 was built from 1883 to 1949, and was a very successful shunting loco. 

Some known to have operated in Ireland.


Requires wheels,chassis 

Railcars
SLNCR Railcar B

The SLNCR was a small standard gauge(Irish 5ft 3in) line linking Enniskillen on the Great Northern system with Sligo on the Midland Great Western system, later to become part of the Great Southern Railway and finally CIE. 

Railcar 'B' was supplied by Walkers of Wigan in 1947,powered by a 102hp Gardner diesel engine mounted on a four-wheeled power bogie .The power bogie was of the four coupled wheel arrangement with outside rods. It was articulated to the main passenger coach, which was carried on a plain bogie. 

When the GNR closed in 1957, Railcar 'B' was bought by CIE and became railcar 2509. It was finally withdrawn in 1971 .

Railcar 'B's SLNCR colour scheme was the two-tone green scheme . When in service with CIE it carried that operator's green livery up until 1962 and after that date the black and orange livery. 

Requires finishing off, wheels and mechanism etc. 
Irish Ford railcar

(Derwent Valley Railway type) 


Ford chassis with body built by C.H.Roe of Crossgates (Leeds). Operated 1924-1926 when road bus competition saw them sold to County Donegal Railways.
They were modified by County Donegal(body lowered), to fit 3ft gauge, but were not uccessful and were scapped in the mid 30s. 

Colonel Stephens wanted to buy them, but was outbid by the County Donegal. 

The design would have be useful on Irish 5ft 3in gauge, as some earlier Ford types were used. 

Requires chassis,and finishing etc.

Dublin and Blessington Tramway Drewry railcar

The Dublin and Blessington Tramway ran from 1888 till 1932, mainly using steam engines but started to use internal combustion in its final years. This railcar was supplied by Drery, and on closure was ought by the County Donegal Railway and converted from 5ft 3in gauge to 3ft gauge, and continued in use until the line closed, having been converted to a trailer coach in the 1940s. It has been preserved in this final condition. 

Requires finishing off, wheels and mechanism etc. 
Great Northern Railway (Ireland) railcar B 

Introduced along with railcar A in 1931-2. railcar A was more successful, and railcar B was de-motored in 1946 and used as a coach(no 500) until being scrapped in 1949.

Requires finishing off, wheels and mechanism etc. 

GSR Clayton steam railcar



Following the LNER the GSR bought 6 steam railcars built by Clayton in 1928. Unfortunately as with the LNER ones they were not successful and were withdrawn in 1932. The loco portions were scrapped and the coaches put into pairs to create articulated coaches , and in this form continued in service till 1955.

Steam railcar ,nos 358 - 361




Requires finishing off, wheels and mechanism etc. 


GSR Clayton steam railcar converted to articulated coaches 

Following the LNER the GSR bought 6 steam railcars built by Clayton in 1928. Unfortunately as with the LNER ones they were not successful and were withdrawn in 1932. The loco portions were scrapped and the coaches put into pairs to create articulated coaches , and in this form continued in service till 1955.

Coach only,359 and 358 paired


Requires finishing off, wheels and mechanism etc. 
 GSR Drumm battery railcar A-B set

The Drumm Battery Train was a battery electric multiple unit developed in the 1930s which ran successfully in service on the Dublin to Bray route. The train's batteries were charged via an overhead pickup at the turnaround station.

The train was a successful implementation of the battery developed by Dr James J. Drumm.


Unit A was constructed at Inchicore railway works in 1931 shortly followed by unit B.
Units C and D were constructed in 1938.


Units A and B were in service from 1932 to 1949, being joined by units C and D in 1939, though the later units were not as successful as hoped. The Drumm Battery Trains were especially useful in the coal shortages of the early 1940s however were restricted by electricity supply shortages of 1949.
The units were withdrawn in 1949 due to the batteries becoming life expired and cheaper alternatives available. Their batteries and electrical equipment were removed and they continued in service as ordinary hauled carriages until 1955. They were stored on a siding at Foxrock until being scrapped. 

Requires finishing off, wheels and mechanism etc. 



Coaches
MGWR 4 wheel 3rd class coach

one of the typical 4 wheel coaches that were built to run on the MGWR . Most were replaced by 6 wheel coaches and were wihdrawn by the end of the 19th century. Some carried on on in other uses .

Requires finishing off, wheels etc. 
MGWR 6 wheel coach
Brake 3rd coach



one of the typical 6 wheel coaches that were built to run on the MGWR . Many continued in use up to till 1950s.
