Highly detailed

Excellent running and highly detailed. Not sure if the layout justifies such a model!

Model is great, reminds me of travelling from Longford to Dublin 40 years ago when the A class headed the train.

Adrian Corcoran
Awesome loco

Bought my A class a few weeks ago and it's superb! Great detail, solid weight and runs very smoothly - I recommend fitting the ESU sound chip from IRM as well, it just increases the enjoyment :)


Can’t wait to see what else is on the way

Superb model

Stunning piece of kit. The guys deserve all the plaudits they are receiving at the moment. Hard to believe this is the first loco this company has produced! Bodes well for the future.

Step up from other models

This really is the Golden Age of Irish modelling. The A Class takes this to a new level of attention to detail. Very well pleased with my model.
