Looking for a modest size narrow gauge project to attempt I happened on this rather interesting prototype. From what I can see searching the forum and Google, some resources have been made but no one has created or in the process of building the actual route. I don't want to duplicate effort or tread on the toes of another builder, particularly if they have better knowledge of the prototype. So would be grateful if anyone knows of a "live" project.

That said, it will be my particular (peculiar!?) take on the area and depending on how things go there is a section of West Cork 5ft 3in (albeit modelled in Standard gauge) network to include.

Ooh, I would like to see this! No-one is doing this one to my knowledge, in fact all of the Irish narrow gauge lines are fair game with the exception of the CDR I think (and possibly the Listowel and Ballybunion too?). The Schull and Skiberreen would certainly be an interesting project, the name has always stuck in my memory, possibly because it sounds like an American Halloween attraction!
The Tralee and Dingle is my favourite though...
