I remember seeing the Supertrain A Class engine for the first time at Heuston Station travelling on holidays to Galway from Chicago . I was struck by the full cowl body on it as the engines in the US all had walkways and platforms etc. It looked so cool and I got a chill up my spine when I took out my engine and it brought me back in time to enj'oy those moments again,, This is more than a model for me

Thanks Irish Railway Models

Great memories!

Very happy with the model and it brings back memories of when I was an apprentice at Inchicore and worked on these locos. The A class and C class re-engine projects were a testament to the resourcefulness and skills of the engineering staff in CIE.

First class

Absolutely fantastic model. Smooth operation, fine detailing, captures the essence of the real thing during the 1980s.
