Royal Arrival - A First Look At Our Park Royal Coaches
The good news keeps coming in waves here at IRM, and hot on the tail of the Mark 2 coaches and ICR, our Park Royal coaches are also progressing nicely.
Announced at the Wexford Model Railway show over the May Bank Holiday, we have just received the first tooling samples which we can now share with you all. As you can see, they look very tasty indeed.
We've been on a mission to do these distinctive coaches justice, and are delighted to report that these samples only need minimal tweaking before we proceed to decorated samples ahead of production. Therefore, they're on track for our envisaged delivery date of Q2 2024. Revisions include tweaking the interior lighting and some fit and finish, which is completely normal at this stage.
Anyway, enough words, more pictures!
The Park Royals have been extremely popular on pre-order, and it's easy to see why. The real coaches were eye-catching and iconic from the golden age of CIE, and the models are shaping up nicely to catch the essence of these carriages as they were in service. Limited numbers are remaining and we are unlikely to be able to increase production volume at this late stage, so pre-ordering is advised to avoid disappointment.
