    NIR FREIGHT

    I can remember one of the 071's failing in Derry and being recovered by another engine, may well have been one of NIR's 111's. Went round to Killagan on a frosty winter's night and you could hear the howl of the engine on full throttle 10 mile away on Ballyboyland bank just outside Ballymoney with the full timber and dead engine in tow. Needless to say the lot came through Killagan like a bat out of hell!!! Best memory of the Big GM in full throttle I ever had.

    NIR FREIGHT

    As a Train mad kid I once stayed all night with the crossing keeper at Killagan (between Ballymoney and Ballymena) during 1981. The Up goods past at around 10.30pm and the Down goods past shortly after 3am. Powered by Class 70 DEMU's in both directions. The Up was a decent length but the Down was about 3 wagons. I remember then sometime around 1983 a Down fertiliser train of 10 wagons with NIR GM passing Killagan around 8.30pm. By this time I never remember seeing any other freight on the Derry line other than the very occasional fertiliser and even remember an Irish rail A Class hauling one. Then there was a short period of timber trains late 1990's or early 2000's bringing Irish Rail 071 haulage to the Derry line
