Morning all,

Further to The Wanderer's post elselwhere on these forums, here's a few shots from yesterday's Engineering Works. My plans went through several phases and were finally confirmed after the failure of the 0645 Portlaoise - Heuston on depot prior for departure. No De Dietrich shot at Islandbridge then! Highlights were:

-Nenagh Branch shuttle being extended to Portlaoise
-216 outside Inchicore
-Mixed pair on the HOBS

Regards,

Evening all,

Now that I'm back at college, Monday afternoons mean a wander aroung the place, be it to Dublin Airport, Portarlington or around the city of Dublin. Today I walked around to North Wall, before taking my first trip out of Docklands station. Photos from today are available to view below. As always, click on any of the photos below to view them (and more) in full size, and the album link is at the bottom of the post

Good evening all,

Part 1 of the weekend's antics start in Connolly and end in Killarney. Some great driving by all three drivers resulted in little time lost overall and some great thrash around the country. Photos also include the normal services, disrupted due to the ballast cleaning.

Part 2 (Day 2) will come as soon as I've finished editing the shots as required and got a few hours to spare!

Regards,
Kieran

Good morning all,

Day 2 of the Irish Railway Record Society tour dawned very dark, very cold and very wet for the run out to Tralee. In Tralee a complicated shunt move had to take place, with the ICR and 2600 having to be moved prior to the special running around. The weather gradually improved throughout the day (if you call snow an improvement!) and by the end of the tour in Connolly, everyone was tired but incredibly happy. Thanks to all involved, including the IRRS' Outings Organiser Shane Roberts, the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland (Dublin Operations) and Irish Rail for the time and effort in the weekend's running.

Morning all,

Yesterday the Dublin Institute of Technology had a tour around Inchicore works in relation the the Railway Technology module of the Transport Operations and Technology course. The trip was highly informative and was well presented, with the two smmall groups walked around almost the entire site. All photos here have been uploaded with permission from Irish Rail, for which I thank them. Click on any of the photos below to view them full-size or the link at the end of the post

Evening all,

To backtrack slightly to the day before my previous post, a few shots from Tuesday showing the joint Railtours Ireland / Irish Rail charter of a 5 ICR from Sandymount to Belfast Great Victoria Street. The set had stabled in Drogheda, coming down empty to Connolly for preparation then onwards to Dún Laoghaire to reverse. Ths I believe was a first (and possibly last) time a 5 ICR Premier Class set has been in the bay. Interstingly some very high-powered people were helping load the special at Sandymount. As always, click on any of the photos below to view them full size or the album link at the end of the post
