Never thought I'd rave about GM locos, but 079 on the Ballina branch with a keen driver was an absolute blast, where else can you get heads out thrash with an ageing loco and 3 coaches on a beautiful rural branch line without needing a passport to get there?
Travelled to Ireland via Holyhead using the amazing value sailrail tickets- £24 single from anywhere in the UK to Dublin with no pre booking is a steal!
