056 A Class

Managed to get my hands on one of the late releases - definitely worth the wait, a superb model! Exceptional quality at a realistic price.

Kieran Doyle

A superb A Class model, a must for anybody modelling ‘Irish Railways’.

Class A 056

This is pure quality. Feels quiet heavy and runs so well on my layout. Details are amazing and the lighting just enhances that no end.
Hope IRM will make some more MK III coaches to go with these trains as there is a serious lack of them out there to purchase.

A Class Irish Rail 056 supertrain

Arrived perfectly packaged , beautiful green box with locomotive detail ,packaging very deluxe with beautiful booklet and plan of locomotive parts .

The locomotive is heavy with super detail ,beautiful craftsmanship , I ran the 056 on DC and the lights were a game changer ..it was like entering another world . I remember the 056 running and I would have been a passenger on her on the Waterford line .

Looking forward to my next A class soon .
