  1. Photographic Website Updates

    Good afternoon all, I spent last week in the Nottingham area, and took the opportunity to have a wander around for a couple of days, revisiting old haunts. The first set of photos are now available to view, from a trip to Uttoxeter that didn't quite end up as expected!

  2. IE seeks new rolling stock

    Nothing official yet, just broadening the horizons a bit as required. Unlike the UK, where bi-modes are DMUs with a pantograph, something along the Stadler bi-modes are more likely from the proposals I have seen when it's been discussed

    Good evening all, There was still plenty of snow around on Monday 11 December as I travelled up from Portlaoise to a college exam in Dublin, but it allowed for some interesting photos! Album link - https://www.flickr.com/photos/hurricanemk1c/albums/72157690300945964 Regards, Kieran

    Good evening all, November has been a relatively quite month, having got over the excitement of the Bluebell and Munster Double railtour. However there are still a few surprises! The main event of the month thus far is being involved in evacuation tests on the Luas Cross City route, with a complete circuit and a quick visit to Broombridge depot in the process.

    The Saturday was an extremely busy day. The nice logical route from my hotel in East Croydon to East Grinstead (for the Bluebell Railway) was a straight trip there. So I decided to get up a bit earlier, and go via Wimbledon. As you do! In addition, I got word that a Rail Head Treatment Train was due to visit East Grinstead during the day, so the plan was rapidly changed to accomodate that! Just a few highlights have been picked out of an excellent day. All can be found at the album link at the end of the page Album link - https://www.flickr.com/photos/hurricanemk1c/albums/72157688867172144 Regards, Kieran The Saturday was an extremely busy day.

    Good morning all, Over the weekend of Friday 6 - Sunday 8 October 2017, I was in London and the Bluebell Railway for the Deltic Preservation Society's 40th Anniversary Gala. Having taken around 2,500 photo (thank god for digital!), I'm still slowly getting through them all! First off, a selection of photos from the Friday - Portlaoise to High Wycombe via Dublin, Gatwick Airport, Ashford International and Ilford.

  11. Dart service

    Full normal service operating from Connolly station southbound. DART services from Malahide / Howth to Connolly are not operating, advised to go via Dublin Bus. Drogheda services operate to Skerries and bus transfer south to Connolly. Enterprise services are bus throughout due to additional works between Newry and Lisburn. Maynooth/Sligo/Rosslare services are unaffected

  13. IRRS Journal

    It appears to have been an issue as to where in the printing process your particular journal was. Mine is fine also. I would suggest contacting the Editor (email just inside the cover) for anyone with issues
  14. Translink IE rule book for Drivers and railway staff

    I don't think it's the most up-to-date rule book, but I also think there's a piece in UK legislation that says these kind of things have to be published. For example, the entire mainland UK Working Time Table is published online: https://www.networkrail.co.uk/running-the-railway/timetabling/working-timetable/ The Railway Safety Standards Board handles the rule book in its 14,000 pieces as well, plus some interesting standards https://www.rssb.co.uk/railway-group-standards#!#Default={"k":"","r":[{"n":"rgsolDocumentStatus","t":["\"ǂǂ4c697665\""],"o":"OR","k":false,"m":{"\"ǂǂ4c697665\"":"Live"}}]}
