The TBLR livery for goods wagons is light grey with white lettering.
TBLR goods van No.3
The model was built in 2007, from an IP Engineering freelance wood kit; it was modified to give a typical Irish feel, mainly influenced by Tralee and Dingle Railway and Castlederg and Victoria Bridge Tramway vans. In July 2010 the van was converted to carry batteries and radio control equipment, and provides power for loco Nos. 3, 4 & 10.
TBLR 10ft open wagon No.5 loosely based on a West Carberry Tramway Wagon Built by Dick Kerr & Co. circa 1886.
The model was a quick 'cut and shut' conversion in 2009, of a Brandbright freelance open wagon originally purchased second hand in 1993. Some additional detailing was applied to the headstocks and solebars in 2013.
TBLR Ballast Wagon No. 7 (Formerly Isle of Man M Wagon)
I have broken my own rule of either scratch or kit building all the rolling stock on the railway, but I had to have this wagon, a superbly detailed 15mm scale model of the IOM M type ballast wagon made for Trackshack by Accucraft.
TBLR goods van No.9
The model was built in 2016, from an IP Engineering freelance laser cut kit. Like van No.3 it has been modified to give a typical Irish feel. Strictly speaking, this van is a locomotive: it has a powered Playmobil chassis and houses a battery, radio control gear and a diesel sound unit. The van was designed to propel the Walker railtruck no.2, which has had its motor removed following a burn out: following the failure of loco No.2, it is also used to propel that engine - minus the diesel sound.
TBLR open wagon No.11. The sides are removable so it can easily be converted into a flat wagon as required.
It was built from a Brandbright freelance wood kit and purchased second hand in 1993. The model received some super detailing, including a working handbrake in 2013.
Schull and Skibbereen Railway Goods van No. 48 (TBLR no.15). This van is one of three that were rebuilt by the company circa 1906-09 from three of the four original Dick Kerr brake vans, leaving 46 as the sole surviving brake van.
The model was built from a wooden kit by Atropos. Construction started in March 2016, but was not completed until March 2017.
Schull and Skibbereen Railway (formerly West Carberry Tramway) goods brake van No.46 (TBLR no.16). Built by Dick Kerr & Co. circa 1886.
The model was scratch built from wood and plastikard in 2008. The van had a re-fit in 2012 and additional detailing was applied to the headstocks and solebars in 2013.
Tralee and Dingle Light Railway open cattle wagons Nos. 57 and 58 (TBLR nos.17 and 18). Built by Pickering and Co. in 1904.
The models were built from John Campbell kits and were completed in November 2010.
Schull and Skibbereen Railway Goods van No. 47 (TBLR no.19). This van, along with TBLR no. 15, is one of three that were rebuilt by the company circa 1906-09 from three of the four original Dick Kerr brake vans, leaving 46 as the sole surviving brake van.
The model was scratch built in 2013 using wood, plastikard and corrugated aluminium sheet. The wheels, couplings and axleguards were salvaged from a withdrawn open wagon.
TBLR Bolster wagons Nos. 22 and 23. Built by Pickering and Co. for the Welshpool and Llanfair Railway.
I have again broken my own rule of either scratch or kit building all the rolling stock on the railway, but I could not resist this pair of Welshpool and Llanfair wagons made by Accucraft. At least they are models of vehicles built by Pickering, who also supplied the Irish narrow gauge railways. I had planned to build a pair of Schull and Skibbereen bolsters, but these fit the bill nicely.
TBLR Cattle Wagon No.26 (formerly 76) inspired by the Tralee and Dingle wagons built by Midland Carriage and Wagon Works in 1907.
The model was built from an IP Engineering freelance wood kit in 2008. The kit was altered considerably in order to represent the original.
Tralee and Dingle Light Railway covered cattle wagons Nos. 67 and 68 (TBLR nos.27 and 28). Built by Midland Carriage and Wagon Co. in 1907.
These models were also built from John Campbell kits and were completed in February 2013.
