We are pleased to announce the release of an exclusive model of our preserved B134 locomotive.
** Less than one-third available to order **
It is with great pleasure that the RPSI can officially announce production in model form of our 121 class locomotive B134. The locomotive will be released in the grey/yellow original livery and in the condition it will emerge from overhaul in Inchicore Works. It will be packed in a specially branded box with the RPSI crest.
The production of this model has been made possible through the generosity of Paddy Murphy of Murphy Models. Paddy has given the Society the opportunity to raise much needed funds and produce this model by giving over some of his production run to facilitate our locomotive. With the suspension of our normal operations, this model will be a much needed vital stream of income this year.
This production run will be a one off and when they are gone they are gone. There will be just 300 of these models produced which will be the smallest number of the forthcoming 121 model to be released by Murphy Models. The locomotives will be a great addition to layouts and also to accompany the recently produced cravens coaches in RPSI livery. The level of detail on these models sets a new level for Irish modelling and they are set to be highly collectable and sought after.
The price of the models will be €189.99 each.
As their way of supporting the RPSI, Irish Railway Models have very kindly offered to process all orders and process secure payment online and dispatch the models on our behalf. They have all the systems in place to deal with the models. We very much appreciated this help and thank IRM. All money will go directly to the RPSI and IRM will absorb all associated costs as their way of supporting the RPSI.
