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.

A new locomotive for a new diorama

An excellent model that gives me the input to realize as soon as possible my very first 00 Irish diorama settled in the first Diesel Era. Now I'm waiting a good old coach or old freight wagon to couple with the locomotive!
