Superb Model

These are super models of the Class A. Another class act from Irish Railway Models, so if you’re modelling the Irish scene or you just require a quality model, these are for you, but they sell out fast.

Enda Folan
A beautiful new addition.

Just getting a new model railway up and running in my retirement. This A Class 027 engine will be the centre piece. It is a beautifully detailed crafted model. Runs very smoothly. Next project to upgrade to full DCC.
Thank you IRM!!

027s Review

It’s a magnificent model, lots of detail and a smooth runner. The only negative was the trailing bogie upper superstructure was catching on the bottom the locomotive body on #2 radius curves. I also bought an A15 locomotive and that’s perfect, no issues with it.

Bill Garrioch

all A class i bought are of excellent quality,and great detail, as well as very good and smooth runners. Well done on getting the A's so accurate. Now the big question what is next ? Park royal dmu, sulzer, baby metro vicks, deutz ?
Laminate, park royal, coaches.

Ahhhh..an A class

Its my 3. A-class (Q-kits 1995, Silverfox 2010)
Yes, fantastic, no comparison to the other models,
Sadly had no time to regauge it (to much work with all that Corona stuff).

Best wishes from a cold but sunny?! Bochum
