Irish Rail Mk 2b/c coaches for IRM


Irish Railway Models has announced a second batch of its 4mm scale ('OO') Mk 2 carriages in Irish Rail (IR) InterCity livery, with delivery slated for the end of 2023.

As with the full-size prototypes, IRM’s new Mk 2b and 2c models make use of former BR stock for Irish operations and feature full interior lighting, fully detailed interiors, a wealth of separately applied detail, sprung buffers, plus bespoke tooling has been developed for the mini buffets.


Finished in the iconic IR InterCity orange and black livery, features of the new models include accurate interiors with characteristic 'winged' headrests, separately applied etched metal and plastic parts, a fully detailed underframe and B4 bogies.

In addition, the coaches will also include different buffers for retracted and non-retracted positions, separate metal interior handrails on the brake and corridor vehicles and fully detailed guard's compartment, together with a full lighting package including magnet 'wand' controlled interior lighting and ‘Stay-Alive' capacitor in all coaches.

Eight vehicles will be offered in IR livery and eight in later IE livery, sold in sets of four-coach ‘rake builder’ packs.


Each pack will be priced at €269.99, with delivery anticipated during the final quarter of 2023.
