    Good evening all, One of the busiest days in recent transport history was Sunday 26 August, with the Papal Visit and final mass in the Phoenix Park. Although the expected 500,000 did not turn up, a respectable figure was still transported by rail-based transport, with several interesting features, including: -8x29000 to M3 Parkway -10 minute DART and Connolly-Clonsilla service (diverging into a 20 minute service to Maynooth and M3 Parkway) -Use of the Luas Racecourse stop for the first time Click on the photo below to view all the photos from the day, and well done to all involved. The few issues that became apparent were well handled. It is estimated that 10,000 passengers passed through Navan Road Parkway with little delay in 90 minutes following the mass Album link - https://www.flickr.com/photos/hurricanemk1c/albums/72157670694689937/with/43630227324/ Regards, Kieran

    Good morning all, After a busy period for me, I'm starting to catch up with photos taken at the beginning of the month. The majority of the shots are from Connolly, with one from Heuston. Highlights include the use of ICR's on the Enterprise, an Inspection Car passing through and a pair on non-CAWS fitted C3K's.

    Good evening all, On Saturday 7 July 2018 I ventured north to the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland's main engineering and museum base at Whitehead for a look around, since I had never visited before. It wasn't all play as a little bit of work was completed (with thanks to Philip for arranging that chance!), along with a detailed tour around the workshops. Of particular interest was the first of what would be called "modern" railcars - underfloor engines powering the bogie next to it!

    Stored Oil Tank wagons

    Couplings were not the issue. They were missing another piece that was presumed to be with the wagons (basically a vacuum gauge for the rear of the train). Van is of interest to more than one party The Mark 3s went to tender for sale. No-one was interested at the time. Worth more as scrap and spares, plus took up a lot more room than a rake of old wagons

    Limerick Junction changes

    As far as I am aware it is a 300m-ish straight platform. Nothing more or less. Plus if you are measuring from the station building it will be to the north east of the existing facilities

    Good evening all, Yesterday (21 June 2018), four oil wagons and a barrier wagon were moved from Heuston Guinness Sidings to Inchicore for further storage. Although initially scheduled for 0915, the transfer actually ran at 1145. Always a fun wait! However it did show how busy Heuston is in the morning - something that even I had not realised despite commuting through the station.
