A class of its own .

Yes my IRM A Class silver livery A30 has arrived , and I have to say this model locomotive is in a class of its own straight out of the box , and the packaging is excellent to.
Well worth the wait I ordered back in 2018 knowing I have no Irish outline stock, or a inch of 21mm gauge track but went for two A class .
Really impressed and so are my fellow model rail enthusiast with the build quality and running performance, and look forward to when a sound decoder is available with the Crossley HST Vee 8 sound file . Well done IRM, and look forward to seeing if you go for the small Metrovick C Class to compliment your A Class .
