    Photographic Website Updates

    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.

    Sligo to Castlebar direct

    The only way by train is via Dublin. As an aside, I can only see one way of doing it completely by heavy rail, as follows: -1300 Sligo - Connolly -1640 Grand Canal Dock - Newbridge (from Connolly) -1730 Heuston - Galway (from Newbridge to Athlone) -1815 Heuston - Westport, arriving in Castlebar at 2104 This only works Mon-Fri

    Thanks Jason!
  13. Hi Dave, I don't think there's any road alterations at present, as the bridge is going in as part of the new Sallins By-Pass project. The bridge itself has been built next to the line over the past 8 months or so (from doing foundations to actually building the deck). All that needs to happen is the bridge parts moved into place. Shame as it was quite a nice quiet spot. The Irish Rail Twitter account has a few interesting photos and videos Kieran
