I read this on Wikipedia the other day:
Page Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IE_201_Class

Quote: There is also speculation that Hornby, who now own the moulds for these models, may make a full production run of these models. This would be a first, as they have never made a Irish loco for the mainstream market before.

Personally I would love to see this happen as any IE Locos become extremely expensive on ebay, which is one of the few places where I can find them.

I would love to know if anyone else has heard anything about this and what they think about it.

While Hornby have never made a actual model of a Irish Railway locomotive. They have as a matter of fact produced a Hymek locomotive along with two BR MkIIa's in C.I.E. livery in the mid 70's for Murphy's Models, Dublin.

I doubt Hornby will produce a model for such a limited market.
