    What's happened to the Irish Railfans News online? Page is gone off RPSI site.
  3. MGWR Inspection Saloon

    Just watched the film again tonight and my memory had been playing tricks as the saloon had no balconies. E424 was the Maybach involved. During the film the French resistance lads go "underground" in Lett's brewery Enniscorthy - encounter a train of Guinness narrow gauge wagons being shunted - before re-emerging under a lorry parked outside Lett's brewery in Enniscorthy. Some tunnel Enniscorthy/St.James Gate! The GSWR Carriage Diagrams book by Pender & Richards (1976) would have supplied all the answers - alas my copy long since sold.
  4. MGWR Inspection Saloon

    The German one is also in Enniscorthy circa 1969 for the filming of "Underground" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Underground_(1970_film) I have it on VHS but I'm too tired tonight to drag out the VCR from wherever I've put it but I'm almost positive that it was also a balcony end carriage. A Maybach also featured in the filming at Enniscorthy. I'll try and find it tomorrow.

  17. A 100% original Shipping Poster for the Dominion Line dating from 1900. I have sold a number of these down the years and they came from a dealer in the Georges Street Arcade in Dublin. He acquired them from somebody who found them in a skip on the North Wall when they were cleared out of an office there. The posters were intended for display on the station advertising boards of the Great Southern & Western Railway throughout Ireland, but due to the Boer War in South Africa the ship was requisitioned and the sailings cancelled. The poster is in excellent condition with very slight foxing. It has been mounted on card at some stage and comes in a frame. A rare opportunity to pick up an historic gem! Collection or courier are the only delivery options. Could also be left for collection (pre-paid) adjacent to Connolly Station. €200 ono.

  20. This book gives a good overview of some of the very many different narrow gauge railways that have served British industry over the last century or so. The narrow gauge railway was born within the mining and quarrying industry but despite the huge interest in such railways worldwide the number of books giving a detailed coverage of them is still relatively small so it is hoped that this new work will help meet a real need. Primarily pictorial in content it consists of around 125 black and white illustrations most previously unpublished, giving a good general coverage of industrial of all gauges less than standard in Great Britain and operated by all forms of motive power from the horse to the diesel locomotive. The contents have been grouped into ten areas, each section preceded with a brief introduction and location map with a detailed caption for every illustration. It is hoped that the appearance of this book will prove of value to modellers in all scales as well as those engaged in preservation or with a general interest in this fascinating subject who wish to learn more.
