    New Irish Lines gave away drawings of GSR locomotive with their magazine but I don't see any D14's in them.

    Tim Cramer built an O Gauge model of superheated D14 No 61 in lined green CIE livery and published an article on the "Irish Greyhounds" incl scale drawings in an Irish Modelling special published with British Railway Modelling April 2014.

    The special included articles with coloured photos on Tony Raggs O Gauge Knockmore Junction & Noel Dodd's Greystones layout a staple of the Irish exhibition circuit during the late 1980s

    The D14s were the small "Kerry Bogies". The 60 class were D17.....

    Was the D17 (Inchicore Class) not the GSWR/GSR Class 52?

    Hi there was the download part of the magazine? or is that at a different web address?

    Just found the Irish supplement so that can be added to the list.

    It was a printed insert, and about as handy as chocolate teapot. All the drawings were scaled differently in the X Axis to the Y Axis so had a slightly elliptical profile to them. I took a fancy to an 0-6-0 GSWR, scanned it, then discovered the error whilst trying to re-draw it. It was mentioned to the editor, and I got no satisfaction. Stopped subscribing and contributing. R
