    • Mmm, it looks like somebody has possibly had a slight tap on the right-hand one there - the first few supplementary clamps have been 'nudged together'...
    • I've noticed that the old buffer stops fitted with actual buffers at Fairview DART depot have got a spruce up as of late. Instead of being finished in typical red they are are now in PWD yellow, all over even the buffer faces. Any authentic Irish style buffer stops on IRM's accessory project list? 
    • As things got tight in January 2008 as scrapping of Mk2D began in full swing. 5610-5212-5205-5211-5236-5221-5154. This was an evening Limerick service on 08/01/08 with no 54xx buffet coach as there was none free.   On the 10/01/08 13.25 Limerick: 5602 5403 5102 5159 5106 5203 17.10 Athlone: 5610 5212 5205 5211 5236 5221 5154 17.50 Galway: 5607 5410 5155 5156 5152 5101 By the end of January there were only 2 sets in service and were regularly a 8 and 9 piece. 5607 5208 5219 5410 5155 5156 5152 5101 5236 this set was noted being hauled by 085 on a evening service ex Heuston.  
    • Managed to dig up bits myself in the mean time. Example below was a Belfast service in 1976 B174 + 5228,5231,5208,5406,5101,5608. In the final days of Mk2D sets below: 5602 5403 5102 5159 5106 5203 5221 (28/1/08 1750 ex Heuston)

      5610 5208 5410 5155 5156 5152 5101 (30/1/08 1750 ex Heuston)  
    • Hi Railer, I remember the latter days of locomotive hauled trains on the Sligo line. The former 1st class coaches had been converted to standard class. If my memory serves me correctly some of the composite coaches were first/standard class, again, all converted to standard class. I recall there being two restaurant coaches running in a set - largely due to the lack of availability of passenger stock.
