As luck may have it, and I do - A/001 Class Locomotive #A30.

The Accurascale Irish Models branch has done a superb model of these engines. great to go with their wonderful rakes of superb Irish wagons. The etched parts are amazingly finely made, and the wagons are full of super detailed and printed notice panel areas. This A Class type loco was also produced as a limited wooden boxed edition as # A1 which I missed. These A Class A 30s are still available but limited to under thirty engines left at the time of writing this review. With all Accurascale stock handle them with a lot of care, as they are exquisitely detailed.

A1 for an A30 in Silver

Accurascale does a fabulous job once again... simples.

Lovely loco. Excellent detail. Runs really well at low speed. ( I could have used some better advice on how to mount some of the small plastic accoutrements)

A30 - Silver

Excellent service and an excellent model!

Shipping took 6 days, from order placement to delivery on the other side of the world.

The model is excellent - Amazing detail and runs really well. I’m very pleased with Irish Railway Models.

A Class CIE locomotive.

One of the best-sorry the best diesel outline model I have ever seen. I saw this engine at Adelaide yards , Great Victoria Street Station in Belfast in 1966 in this livery. Perfect reproduction. Have to run it yet. Beautiful boxing and perfect delivery.

My twelveth A class, in perfect condition like all the others. Brilliant loco. Well done IRM.

It runs surprisingly quiet and smooth.
Sound functions are super.
I hope the cab and engineering room lights can be in function numbers before 10.
