Evening all,

A triple update from me tonight as I have been rather lacking in posting here!

The first one is from Stradbally, featuring a number of unusual moves for line clearance and vegitation clearance along the line. Plus the chance to get underneath LM44 / Number 2 and getting a few photos

Back in the land of heavy rail, a quick trip to get the Spray Train returning to Portlaoise

And finally for the moment, yesterday's antics waiting for the Spray Train to head out of Portlaoise, which it did 150 minutes late!

Morning all,

A few shots from Stradbally on Sunday, where (with the help of the WW2 Re-Enactment Club) we staged a 'War' day with various uniforms and weapons on display. We ran with steam loco LM44 all day and another first was done - the carriages entering the pit road in the shed for an exam.

Evening all,

Today the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland transferred their 3 'Baby GM' locos from Inchicore Works (where they have been stored since 2009/2010) to their shed in Connolly station. The day certaintly wasn't straight forward! Originally going to be one transfer, a last minute fault prevented this from happening and the transfer was cancelled. Luckily I bumped into another gricer who had heard the transfer was back on! Photos from the day can be seen below, with the normal railway running around as well. Click on any of the photos below to view them all
