I took a spin out to Crewe via the rail replacement services from Derby to Tutbury. A quick out-and-back but useful all the same

I unexpectedly found myself in Thurles late this afternoon and photographed 22033 which had been earlier failed while working the 1400 Heuston - Cork. It was waiting to head back to Laois Traincare Depot. The 1725 Cork - Heuston was cancelled as a result.

Interesting to see the mixed 29k liveries in the rake.

It's actually fairly regular sight more often than not. They're 5 years into repainting the sets and I think only 7 or 8 out of the 29 are done due to the high demand on the fleet.

Thanks for info. That's the 4th commuter livery change since the introduction of the original Arrow in 1994.

Evening folks,

Last weekend I visited Berlin, Warsaw and Prague with a group of friends for a weekend away. Of course there was plenty of time for pictures and we traveled from Berlin to Warsaw by the Warsaw Express and then onto Prague by the overnight Choplin sleeper train.

Pictures from Warsaw include a visit to the railway museum in the city.

A few photos from this week have been uploaded to the October gallery featuring a birds eye view of 207 passing Clongriffin, 088 hauling failed 232 from Cork to Inchicore and 073 shunting a PWD train at Portlaoise. Click https://goo.gl/oCByZo to view.
