A trip to Athlone and Woodlawn mainly to see the Green liveried 216 on its last run before repainting.

All of the July photos can be accessed at http://smu.gs/29FtgbB





- The Old Rail Trail Mullingar to Athlone.
I cycled the route on Saturday 9th July from Athlone to Mullingar, returning the following day back to Athlone. The entire route is well used by locals and visitors out walking and cycling.
For more information on the "Old Rail Trail" as it is now know as, visit the Westmeath County Council website for further information http://www.westmeathcoco.ie/en/ours...rtsrecreation/greenway/oldrailtrail-routemap/

All of the photos from the Cycle can be viewed at http://smu.gs/2aaBabg



- RPSI Western Gateway.
The RPSI ran another of their Sunday excursions from Dublin to a destination down the country, this time to Athlone and Ballinasloe. I joined the train at Ballinasloe for the return to Dublin.

071 was released into general freight traffic on Friday when it took over the Ballina to Waterford Timber at Kildare. After spending the weekend in Waterford it was allocated to the 1130 Waterford - Ballina DFDS Liner on Monday.

I caught a few pictures of it at Kyle Bridge (Kildare) and at the station itself.

Also in this update are a few 22000 Class units and Ballast Regulator 703 heading down road from Kildare.
