On Wednesday, I had a brief stop over in Kildare



---

And finally, the big event

22027 failed in Rosslare Europort on Saturday 10th September before departure of the 1755 to Connolly. Despite best efforts, it was decided to drag the set to Laois Traincare Depot for rectification work. A move done in two parts, 084 is seen arriving into Hazelhatch with the failed set as the 0850 Inchicore - Laois Traincare Depot. This is the first time since 11 March 2014 (082+22014 from Inchicore to Laois Traincare Depot). Shots feature Inchicore, Hazelhatch, Sallins and Kildare, with normal traffic as well

Morning all,

A few updates from me. As always, click on any of the photos to view them full size

Firstly photos from a training day at Stradbally, where we were using the diesel loco 'Rusty' rather than the normal LM44. This gave me the oppourtunity to take a few different photos of the place
