    RPSI 2018

    Yeah, the staff told us that the boiler pressure dropped too low because the fire died. They also couldn't get 85 into gear, which delayed us further. 087 then came to rescue us, as Railer said. I'd say the RPSI will get quite a hard time from IE though, I think there was about 4 or 5 services severely delayed because of us!
  2. Thanks for the help, I'll probably save up for the SSM chassis because I was only looking for it to be a quick project over the summer! Sorry it took so long for me to reply - exams got in the way! Thanks again - Kevin
  3. Hi guys, I was just wondering whether anyone knows of a suitable donor chassis that would fit the SSM "Merlin" kit, as it would be a bit outside my budget to purchase the gearbox, crankpins, motor and wheels from them along with the kit. Thanks!

    Merlin also looked great in Limerick Junction as it waited for 085 to arrive with the rake of Cravens

    NIR 111 double heading trials

    I don't seem to be able to attach the photos, I get a notification saying that the upload failed every time I try to attach them to the message

    Oh ok! Thanks for that, I'll correct it now.

    NIR 111 double heading trials

    I'm not sure if this is the right section to put this in, but 111 worked a recovery service today for 228 which failed while working the 20.50 Enterprise on Tuesday. I took a photo of it as it powered through Dundalk with 228 in tow, which is attached to this comment. I also have a few photos of (8)111, 228 and 074 in Connolly which I took earlier this evening, which I can post tomorrow if ye want to see them!
  9. Does anyone know why the prices are so high?

    Thanks Noel!
  13. The Emerald Isle Explorer stopped in Mallow today on it's way to Killarney (it departed Dublin Connolly this morning) so I went and took a few photos of it. Here's a few for those of you that are interested!
