Another Class Act by IRM

A42 is my 3rd A Class by IRM & I love it!

As with my A30 (Silver) & A55 (Black) it's a great runner & stunning in detail.

A Class Locos A42 Green

I Saw A loco in this Colour Scheme At Ashtown Level Crossing A few Short Months Before I Started School in St John Bosco Boys National School Kinvara I was aged four and a Half at the Time in 1965 my Dad asked the man at the level Crossing where was the train Coming From Sligo to Conolly he replied Just then a Rake of green Carriges with Irish Snail logo probably pulled By A42 Ran Across the level Crossing Towards Dublin City Great loco and nice work of Art well worth the money and owning for nostalgia purposes
