Evening folks,

Photos from yesterdays RPSI Diesel Railtour "The Branchline Wanderer" from Connolly to Waterford and Limerick have now been uploaded to the website at http://goo.gl/2VugC9 . Locos 071, 074 and 086 were used on the tour with changes taking place at Waterford and Limerick.

Despite some late running in the afternoon, the tour was another great success with 304 passengers travelling on the tour during the day. Money raised from these railtours goes towards funding the restoration of the RPSI's 121 Class loco No. 134 which is currently at Inchicore undergoing overhaul.

Amazing the amount of growth round GVS now. I remember how barren it looked when it opened over twenty years ago.

Good evening all,

A few shots from the end of March and the beginning of April, showing the altered rail services over the Easter Bank holiday (due to the installation of a new underbridge at Sallins). As always, click on any of the photos to view them full size
