    Signalling diagrams

    Well this would be my take on it, 1 Starting signal for departing trains 2 optional second departing signal for trains from the yard, but you could always just shunt to platform for departures and only have a shunt signal at the exit to the yard. 3 3 disks controlling movement to top goods yard, platform and bottom goods yard. 4 Disk controlling movement out of the top goods yard. 5 Controls movement from platform to headhunt 6Controls movement from bottom goods to headshunt 7 Controls movement from headhunt to goods 8 Home signal into platform, optional secondary signal into yard but the No3 shunt disk would work fine here. All other points as hand points, no signaling required.

    Out of interest, what planning software are you using?

    Gort Station

    The water tower was moved during the renovation, possibly due to a preservation order. This document include some great information for you, Page 1 has scale drawings before the reopening page 12 has detailed drawings of the signal box Page 13 has a great set of drawings for anybody modelling a modern IE footbridge http://gccapps.galwaycoco.ie/viewexternaldocuments/ViewPDF?ref=1387517 http://www.eplanning.ie/GalwayCC/AppFileRefDetails/08443/0 Galway Co Co Planning reference 08443 There is more information in the other planning applications but the one linked seems to be the best The O'Dea Collection has one picture from 1969 http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000307634 And I came across this one on flickr but the entire album is worth looking at

    First Look at the IRM Tara!

    found the list of colour codes, Red & White = Not to go Red & Green = Yard to yard/depot movement only for repairs White & Blue = Casualty repair, can complete loaded journey, not to be reloaded, to be worked to specified repair depot Green = For repairs, can complete loaded journey, not to be reloaded Green endorsed (May be home loaded) = , can be reloaded to or towards specified destination where repairs can be done White endorsed in red (defective brake)= Not to be reloaded, brake lever to be secured off.

    First Look at the IRM Tara!

    It looks like a for repair label, there would be some fault with the wagon and it would need to be moved to a depot for repairs. There was a colour coded system to them but I am struggling to remember them, I think it was Red= not to go, red/green = go at reduced speed, green = go at normal speed.

    Ballybrophy.

    Those lettings usually pop up on Daft.ie , there is a list of what is currently available here, https://www.daft.ie/dublin/estate-agents/dublin-1/cieproperty/ There are lots of business set up in those types of sheds across the country but I have no idea if the one in Ballybrophy is in use. A number of those sheds are also used as stores by the permanent way department.
