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.

Branch Line Society: The Fairview Failte - Sunday 6th May 2018

On Sunday 6th May 2018, the Branch Line Society in conjunction with Iarnrod Eireann operated a charity railtour, raising money for the Railway Children charity. The railtour traversed unusual lines in the Greater Dublin and surrounding area with a leg stretch break in the bay at Bray and a photo stop at Ballybrophy! 

Highlights of this tour include the Fairview Up Carriage Sidings, Connolly Carriage Wash Line, Heuston Yard, M3 Parkway headshunt (21 chain extension beyond the station), Newcomen curve and a wide range of loops, crossovers and wrong road routing. 

For a full rundown of the tour and where it went to, click on the picture below to see all the images.

Fab photo Herflick as was the previous photo by Wanderer of both steam locos, Merlin and No 4 respectively. It's an added bonus there were no 22k in either photos. :) Eight coach rake looks fabulous.
