    Evening folks,

    We kick off the 2019 season with photos from Portlaoise, Limerick Jct., Limerick and Nenagh. The North Tipperary Rail Community had their annual outing from Nenagh Station today to Limerick for Limerick-on-Ice with about 90 people travelling on the 1655 from Limerick to Ballybrophy.

    Monday 14th January 2019:
    While waiting for my train, I noticed that platform end fencing has appeared at Portlaoise, even the disused bay platform was treated.

    Pictures from Portlaoise and near Thurles today, highlight being Belmond Grand Hibernian 216 working a Cork passenger diagram.

    While having to make a quick sortie to the Dublin Docklands on Wednesday evening, I managed to get some photos from The Point, Spencer Dock, Mayor Square and some evening time photos at Heuston Station prior to catching my train home.

    Saturday 19th January 2019:
    Today had been long marked in for a ramble around the south and west part of the IE network, but I found myself having to make changes as a short notice trip to South Wales cropped up for the next few days.

    So instead of the planned circular trip from Limerick to Waterford - Kildare - Athenry - Ennis and Limerick I found myself heading from Nenagh at 0740 to Ballybrophy, Portlaoise, Portarlington, Clara, back to Portarlington before heading south to Portlaoise, Limerick Jct. , Limerick and Ennis, before retracing my steps to Thurles to be collected for a road trip to Rosslare (getting there by train or bus from Munster is a PITA these days).

    Despite some miserable weather in the Midlands which wasn't great for photos it was good to venture to parts of the network I haven't been to for a while.

    Highlights include seeing both up and down IWT liners and a 6pce 2800 on the Limerick Jct. shuttle in connection with a Rugby match at Limerick.
