Morning folks,

Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th April 2017:
Photos from this weekend include images of the Belmond Grand Hibernian going down the Dublin & South Eastern Railway line as far as Gorey, where it stabled on Saturday night. The normal Saturday route to Belfast wasn't available due to engineering works. To start off the weekend I dropped into Rosskelton to see the ballast cleaning works ongoing.

Evening folks,

Wednesday 3rd May 2017:
Another ramble today, this time heading to Tralee, Killarney and Cork. Locations include:
- Portlaoise
- Mallow
- Tralee
- Killarney (includes Railtours Ireland charter from Cobh to Killarney).
- Cork.
- Rathmore (to see the Belmond Grand Hibernian pass through).

Plans to go down the Cobh line had to be abandoned due to a signal failure at Myrtlehill Level Crossing outside Cork at 1600. Then the Tralee line service was badly delayed due to another signal failure at Rathmore just as I arrived there on the 1725 Mallow - Tralee!

Afternoon all,

I ventured over to Cush in Co. Kildare this morning to photograph 078 hauling the Belmond Grand Hibernian from Connolly to Waterford. The Sunday and Monday trips to/from Waterford are now scheduled to be hauled by an 071 Class locomotive rather than the dedicated Belmond liveried 216 due to operational issues at Dundalk where the train is stabled at on Saturday night.

This mornings outing also has images from the Barrow Bridge at Monastervin and Rosskelton in Co. Laois.

Evening all,

Lunchtime at Shanderry outside Portarlington today was very productive with 077 on the Weedspray from Athenry to Heuston and 072 on the Ballina - North Wall IWT Liner.

Also a small update to the end of Friday's journey with 22011 at Kildare close to midnight and Ballast Cleaner 781 at Cherryville Jct.

Morning all,

Limerick Station will be closing for three weeks from Monday 5th June for the resignalling of the station to take place. The Station and Check Cabins will both be closed with control transferred to the new "Limerick Electronic Control Point". The Station Cabin will be demolished and the kink in Platform 3 will be removed during the closure.

On Tuesday I made a few detailed photos of the station layout prior to closure and alteration.
