Superb, so realistic, ttc. You must have almost as many locos as IE, now!

Thank you JHB...….Maybe a little more locos than IE at the moment...…:tumbsup:

Having been transferred from the Limerick junction Divisional engineers department over the last few days P&C Tamper 750 is seen here shortly after arrival being examined by the Permanent way inspector and his deputy at the per way sidings.

The model is from the HO Lilliput range and is DCC fitted-it fits in well with all the other machinery.

Some activity from an enjoyable evening at the junction earlier...

After its tour of the layout 0117076 arrives back with the Sperry and weed spray train, shortly afterwards 0117078 arrives with a HOBS set and is seen here running around the train and propelling it to the siding,

071 passes with an empty timber train to Ballina, while retro liveried 2600 railcar 2601+2602is stabled between duties on platform one.

Over at the MPD the fueller advises the depot controller of the amount of fuel that locomotive 221 has received, before its release back to traffic

Ex works IR liveried 071 class locomotive 080 hauls three stored unserviceable 001 class locomotives.001,056,034 and a barrier wagon to act as a brake force through the station,

It is reported that the locomotives will form part of a sound barrier at the MPD before a decision is made on their future......

See a reply of mine on another thread.

In the 1960s CIE had a Pilot Engine at many main stations to deal with sundry shunting and rescuing trains whose unreliable A Class had failed. So you chose your shortest, least useful, siding and bung one of them there as your station pilot?

Many thanks Leslie-My sound fitted C class can be used for that very purpose......

2601+2602 are seen here at platform one at Tara junction with a commuter service from Kildare to Heuston.

The railcar has been fitted with a sound chip.

Shortly after the Arrow departed from platform one 087 weaves its Supertrain set of MK3s across the point work and into the platform.....

The second photo shows passengers waiting for the Guard to enable the automatic doors to allow them to board..
