IRISH RAILWAY MODELS (IRM) is adding to its rapidly expanding range with two newly-tooled ‘OO’ gauge wagons.
Following on from their announcement of new Bullied open wagons for the scale at the recent Dublin model railway exhibition, the company has confirmed plans for new ‘OO’ gauge LB and Permanent Way Department (PWD) flat wagons, which share the triangulated underframe.
The LB flats were designed under Corás Iompair Éireann’s Chief Mechanical Engineer Oliver Bullied, resulting in a simple flat wagon with a 12ton capacity. 79 of these wagons were built in 1958 for use on goods traffic.
The final development was the PWD flat wagon, also utilising Bullied’s triangulated underframe, this time from redundant former H vans with the brackets acting as stanchions.
IRM’s new models boast die-cast floors, separately fitted detailing, sprung buffers, full representation of brake and underframe gear and brass bearing cups.
Available in triple wagon packs, each pack is priced at €89.95, with release anticipated during the third quarter of 2024.
