    Evening all, A bit of a PWD update this evening with pictures of 088 arriving at Portlaoise with a rail train from North Wall. Later on I stumbled upon it shunting the CWR train at Portlaoise PWD Yard. Earlier today 073 brought the Sperry Train from Mallow to Portlaoise. In other photos, Monday starts off with 222 hauling failed MKIV set 4001 past Portlaoise and a few MKIV sets passing Rosskelton today. Click http://smu.gs/2ooGZth to view.

    Evening folks, It seems I jinxed 216 last night after my spin to Cork behind it yesterday. It was hauled back from Cork to Inchicore this morning hauled by 219.

    Evening folks, We start off the 2018 round of photos with a visit to Cork, Cobh and Midleton. The main reason for my trip was to see the new station entrance at Cork. Unfortunately the weather wasn't that kind with Storm Eleanor rolling in across the country. Click http://smu.gs/2DUbLk3 to view.

    Afternoon all, The 2017 Year in Review is now available to view at http://smu.gs/2q65ejW This gallery contains over 450 photos from the past 12 months from the railways of Ireland. I hope you enjoy the gallery and let's hope 2018 will be just as interesting. From a personal viewpoint the painting of 073 into its original Irish Rail "white stripe" livery was certainly the highlight of the year for me, joining sister locomotive 071 in its original CIE livery from 1976 which was repainted in 2016.
