Also "MKT Transport Photography" visited Dublin earlier in the week and has kindly allowed me to use some of his photos of Dublin Connolly from his trip.

Evening folks,

The latest images have now been uploaded to the March gallery.

Monday 13th March 2017:
A few pictures from Portlaoise, Ballybrophy and Limerick with the aim of heading to Birdhill to photograph a Ballast Train which should have been stabled there. It wasn't! Looks like it dropped its stone and headed back to Limerick Jct. instead of stabling. The ever elusive perway train!

Tuesday 14th March 2017:
A ramble around Portlaoise and Portarlington at lunchtime produced some better luck with perway trains!
- Inspection Car 723 heading to Ballybrophy.
- Track Recording Car 700 heading from Mallow to Heuston.
- Ultra rare passenger loco 223 on a MKIV set.
- HOBS and Spoil trains at Portarlington.
- 22001 being reformed at Laois Depot into its correct formation.

Evening folks,

Photos from Wednesday and Thursday have now been uploaded to the March gallery at http://smu.gs/2mUImAj

On Thursday I took a ramble from Portlaoise to Limerick via Galway.

Some good loadings on the Western Rail Corridor. The 1840 Galway - Ennis (22003) had 43 passengers after Athenry. Many of these connected off the 1630 Heuston Galway. 31 of these alighted in Ennis, with 6 remaining in board for the 77 minute wait for the 2110 Ennis Limerick. The reason for the long wait is due to the long single line section between Limerick and Ennis of 24 miles and two trains from Limerick at 1945 (to Galway) and 2025 (to Ennis).
The 1800 Limerick Galway was crossed at Gort formed of a single 2800 Class unit. It was full and standing room only with all four vestibules having standing and sitting passengers in them.
Meanwhile for the 77 minute wait at Ennis I took a walk down the town to check out a certain railway themed pub.

Good evening folks,

On Saturday I took part in the "#JJinstarail Goes West, The Mystery Tour" which was a mystery train trip from Dublin Heuston to Galway (although I knew that already!).

Pictures from the trip are at http://smu.gs/2nLKA3x
