Very nice model.........but what was the point in overhauling most of the 071 locos in the black/silver and now replacing that with slate grey?

 

I think Irish rail has been more imaginative with liverys in the past few year than over the previous few decades.......even the branding has changed from simply irish rail to iarnrod eireann with a tri colour!!!

 

Do you not think as aiming for an all island railway system nationalities should be put aside :)

For anyone interested the 071 fleet UIC numbers are:

 

071 = 92 60 0117071-3

072 = 072-5

073 = 073-3

074 = 074-1

075 = 075-2

076 = 076-4

077 = 077-4

078 = 078-2

079 = 079-0

080 = 080-2

081 = 081-4

082 = 082-4

083 = 083-2

084 = 084-0

085 = 085-3

086 = 086-5

087 = 087-3

088 = 088-1

 

I think the correct UIC numbers for the 071 fleet is

 

071 = 92 60 0117071-7

072 = 92 60 0117072-5

073 = 92 60 0117073-3

074 = 92 60 0117074-1

075 = 92 60 0117075-8

075 = 92 60 0117076-6

076 = 92 60 0117077-4

076 = 92 60 0117078-2

077 = 92 60 0117079-0

078 = 92 60 0117080-8

081 = 92 60 0117081-6

082 = 92 60 0117082-4

083 = 92 60 0117083-2

084 = 92 60 0117084-0

085 = 92 60 0117085-7

086 = 92 60 0117086-5

087 = 92 60 0117087-3

088 = 92 60 0117088-1

 

The first 2 digits 1-2 is the Type code:

 

Digit 1 is '9'

 

If digit 2 describes the type of tractive stock, the following coding is mandatory:[3]

 

90 Miscellaneous (tractive unit not otherwise classified, e.g. steam locomotive)

91 Electric locomotive

92 Diesel locomotive

93 Electric multiple unit (high speed) [power car or trailer]

94 Electric multiple unit (not high speed) [power car or trailer]

95 Diesel multiple unit [power car or trailer]

96 Specialised trailer

97 Electric shunter

98 Diesel shunter

99 Special vehicle (e.g. Departmental tractive unit)

 

The next 2 digits, 3-4 is the Country code:

 

60 Ireland.

70 UK, I presume that includes NI.

80 Germany.

 

The next 4 digits, 5-8 are the Class number:

 

0117.

 

The next 3 digits, 9-11 is the Serial number:

 

071.

 

The last digit, 12 is the Check digit:

 

The check digit is calculated from digits 1-11. It is derived from the sum of the numbers that arise when the digits are alternately multiplied by 2 and 1; the difference of this sum from the next multiple of ten produces the check digit.

 

So does that now mean that the Class 071 is now Class 0117?

 

 

Example of a UIC vehicle number:

 

Meaning of 97 80 8194 052-7 D-LEG

 

97 Type, here electric locomotive, top speed up to 100 km/h

80 Country, here Germany

8194 Federal Railway Office type, here DRB Class E 94

052 Serial

7 Check digit

So are they now the 92600117071 class?!

 

No, they are still the 071 class. But if you want to call them the '92600117071' class, that's up to you!

Why not A class? If I remember correctly A was for locomotives over 1,000 hp (or was it 1,200 hp?). So A71 - A88. H class would have been for something less powerful than a Deutz. A horse and cart maybe?

Why don't the 071s have an owner code?

Aye, they would have been A class diesels as the maximum power for that class wasn't specified.

A Class sounds right to me. Sure weren't there at least 6 different B Class diesels.

A - G classes.

A being most powerful loco, G being least powerfull (G being more likely a shunter loco).

 

Sorry if this doesn't make spence, I'm not good of explaining via text.

That would get confusing! :P

So would an TNIR c4k/class 4000 be 95 70 1040-4000~~T-NIR?

I'm not sure why the 071s don't have the country or owner codes. Possibly something to do with issues if crossing the border, same as with the black & white logo on some vehicles. If they did the codes would be IRL-IÉ. NIR codes would be UK-NIR.
