  1. Freight Times 2018

    IWT normally runs both ways on Saturday, ex NW at 9:35 as per Railers post and ex Ballina at 08:15, arriving into Dublin around 13:00.. At the moment there’s trials taking place so the down trains as deferred to Sunday at 11:30 for the next two weeks Also, new rail trains occasionally run Waterford to Portlaoise on a Saturday
  2. Photographic Website Updates

    Hi Neil, just noticed in one of your pics from last Monday you mentioned an ICR being used as a shunting set.. is this a permanent duty as I thought portlaoise has a small shunter on site?
  3. Modern Day Rail on Derry Road

    Not too sure about the no freight since 1965 JHB.. The Derry timber could have been a success if it ran Derry to Dundalk via the Derry Road.. so you could have 1/2 trains a week of timber flats hauled by a 111 to Dundalk
  4. Behind the scenes at IRM

    Best of luck guys.. does this mean the ammonias are a shoe in for the next project(6??)since very similar wagons ran in the U.K. for ICI?
  5. Kingsbridge - paint shop

    They look great Noel.. not to be pedantic but any pics I've seen of a rake of bubbles has them ladder end to ladder end rather than all facing the same direction.. I'm guessing it was done to make connecting the discharge pipework easier.. any know?

  7. Would anyone have a dapol 20ft container like the EWL livery in the link below that they would be willing to sell or swap for a similar container http://www.hattons.co.uk/26246/Dapol_B776a_Jan_2009_v2_Container_for_Spine_Wagon_Twin_pack_of_20_containers_1_x_Hanjin_dark_blue_1_x_E/StockDetail.aspx
  8. Just say this promoted online.. Any one know what's involved and if provision will be made for the possible reopening of the Foynes line that has been rumoured for a while http://www.irishrail.ie/limerickworks
  9. I have 2 Dapol 45ft containers and 2 20ft Bachmann containers that I want to remove the decals from so that I can spray paint them.. Has anyone done this and if so what worked for people? I have tried white spirits and Nail polish remover but both didn't seem to have any effect on the decals
  10. Was just down at NW and 216 in Belmond blue is coupled to the laden wagons for tomorrow mornings IWT liner.. It was too dark for Photos but perhaps might be of use to some thinking of heading line side tomorrow
  11. Hello to all, Just thought I would share the details of this coming Monday's freight trial in case any camera toting members of the IRM community wanted to head out and catch it! The train will operate from Dublin to Ballina, not Waterford to Limerick as originally planned. The reason for the change was the low height of bridges on the south tipp line making the use of 9ft 6in containers impossible.. As the port of waterford only handles short sea services, the only cobtainers readily available were of the 9ft 6 variety.. The train will load in Dublin port on Monday afternoon to form the 20:40 departure ex North wall. The train will run as 27 wagons as far as Claremorris, where 9 wagons will be detached for the run onwards to Ballina.. Hope that this is of help to some and happy snapping! Mogul

Second I have a set of Bachmann Oo gauge Eucon containers, also in the original box and in as new condition.. Will take €12 for these Am based in Dublin so can meet up around the city for a sale, or can look into postage if needed
  13. Hello All, First post in some time on the forum! I got a few of the excellent C-Rail containers for my Christmas present, including the 40ft Fyffes Bananas reefer: http://www.c-rail-intermodal.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=25_28&product_id=103 I've done some googling and have found out that these used to come into Belview on a special Banana boat:banana::banana:, but these seem to have ended around 2007/8. Does anyone know if they are still in use and do they still come into Ireland? My current thinking is to use it on a model of a Dublin-Waterford Liner with some CPWs:trains:

    There's a nice article in this months traction magazine about the history of GM locos outside the US. Irish rails locos feature prominently, worth a look!!
