A lapse of sanity

Living out in Aus currently I saw the limited edition A3R offered by Irish Railway Models that supported the Irish Traction Group so I had a lapse of sanity and ordered one (in part to support Irish Traction Group), I have to admit the contact from IRM and the excellent and quick postage to the Antipodes was excellent and when I open the box I was amazed at the presentation and detail.

Taking the loco to my club (Illawarra Model Railway Association near Wollongong NSW) and there with the help of DCC specialists fitted the supplied Loksound chip. The simplicity of the install was fantastic and then what a superb little runner.

Top Marks (however my wallet cries as I now need to buy more stock :p)
