    What type of plastic card did you use hunslet if you can remember that would be great as I'm using Milliput for a 450 class from 150/1 and I think plastic card would be better for windows and doors

    I suggest you check out the video on you tube/disabled parking badge sign on double yellow lines you will love this typical city council in England and the traffic warden whom they employ. But yes you are probably rite hence me stating how our two governments should bang there heads together

    I think u missed my point riversuir226 I meant if freight in Ireland is to be successful ever again then surly regardless of port the two governments and two railway providers need to look at an island length freight network which could be achieved I mean running real from the bottom to the top at night must surly be more economical and has to be a positive thing for employment for more financial income it's quicker and more effective.

    Or re-introduce crossborder freight and make use of the line between Lisburn and Antrim as a means of freight to Derry/Donegal. Three big work hoarse GM's that owe NIR nothing now, they have paid for themselves many times over could take up some of the slack on the cross border freight service only night traffic movements would be a possability so as not to infringe on passenger traffic, freight movements from Larne harbour and Lisburn moving a lot of freight north reliably safely and into Donegal would require Hugh investment I would presume but if it works in Scotland England and Whales then why not across the whole of Ireland surly with the support of the Irish goverment and NI Assembly/Westminester plus EU Backing it could be achieved

    I get what your saying imagine if the Northern Irish government banged there heads and maid use of the port of Larne, it has a station that not many people use nowadays with 90% of foot and car passengers now use the stenna terminal in Belfast harbour. Think of the loop at greenisland being relayed it would be a direct freight route to North Coast/Derry from Derry by road to Donegal surely it's a no brainer Translink should take the next step in the Re-investment in railways the DRD save money on the maintenance of roads/potholes as the big beasts won't be on the roads. But governments never learn (example) in the 80's a stretch of road in Co Antrim about 4.5 mile long would of cost 70 odd million maybe less now for the near exact same road plan as before cost The NI government and EU funding 300 million I mean that is why governments never see sense so so odd
