I was wondering if anyone had any information on the timber traffic from Ennis to Waterford. I was unaware of this traffic until I saw a picture in the 'Rails through the West' book. The picture is from Limerick Check and shows 123 and 131 with 9/10 laden bogie timbers. The caption indicated that it departed Ennis at 17:00. The date is Saturday 13th of June, 1998. on the Ordnance Survey of Ireland 'Mapviewer', the satellite image from 2000 of Ennis shows a timber train in the yard so the flow ran at least until then. Does anyone know when it ceased? Why it ceased? How frequent was it?
An help will be greatly appreciated,
