Happy New Year from Murphy Models

As you will have noticed, 2015 was a rather quiet year for Murphy Models, mainly through circumstances beyond our control.  However, we will try to make up for it in 2016 .

First, the news everybody has been waiting for - Class 121 CAD drawings were started in December. It is expected that pre-production samples will be available for perusal at the MRSI October Show in
Raheny with a first delivery in time for Christmas. It is intendeded that the IE and original CIE grey will be first to arrive with CIE Black and Supertrain and IR versions to follow within 9-10 months.

Re-vamped MkII coaches in Supertrain livery are due to arrive mid-year. These will be an improvement on the original consignment following prolonged discussions with the factory! Note that these will have new fleet/catalogue numbers (to be advised) and are brand new models - not repaints.

Also on the horizon will be short runs of Class 201 locos in the interim livery and the latest Enterprise livery.  Delivery schedule to be finalised.

Due to popular demand, we will produce the Craven restaurant car as fleet number 1509. No delivery date is available at present.

Finally, we will have a unique 1916 commemorative  item.  ETA June. You will have to wait for further details. 

Any schedules referred to above are not cast in stone. Due to €/$ volatility, it is not possible to indicate prices at this time.
