Really looking forward to this on Saturday myself. Can't wait to sit back and chill with a pint of the black stuff while being hauled around listening to 071s for 12 hours. Even managed to convince herself to come along for this one too.:D Her only question: Is there a bar coach on this? Me: Yes. Her: Grand so. :ROFL:

I'm in the same boat as you Railer.The other half wanted to come along to see what all this fuss about trains is.Went a little like this....

Her: I wont be bored will i ?

Me: Not if like 071 class locomotives and don't mind sitting in a Craven all day.

Her: What are they ?

Me : Bring a word search you'll be grand.

Like you I'm really looking forward to this, last one was the Marble Tribesman last year and it was a great day out.

Was hoping for 071 or 073 for tomorrows run, but alas. Looks like 076 will be hauling from Connolly to Waterford, where a now cleaned up 085 will take over for the run to Limerick. Dunno what's on the home run yet. 

Never been on a train hauled by 76 or 85 before so all good anyway.

Inchicore - Connolly transfers 073

Connolly - Waterford 076

Waterford - Limerick 085

Limerick - Ballybrophy - Thurles - Connolly 086

Probably last time to get 086 in the freight livery on a tour too, she's in a bad way externally. I reckon she is next in line for overhaul.

Never mind Heuston - it would be nice to see her go to Greystones and back - my only Q  Class run was to there in the early 1960s, with sister 132. 

131 will be my second Q Class "for haulage" in May, (DV). One friend has already  notched up 200 miles with her!

Happy Days!

Just heard its rather cold on board - there's no heating. Boiler issue on 3173 apparently. Unfortunately I couldn't make this interesting trip.

Great trip, it was bit cold on the train up to Waterford but after it was grand. Great weather from Limerick Junction onwards. 

Great day. We got 074 at Waterford instead of 085, 085 was coupled to the CPWs. 

086 put on a fantastic show from Turles back to Connolly and made up a good  bit of time. 

The RPSI gave advance warning of the boiler certificate issue in fairness.

Is the Pope more of an 071 man?

He told me he much preferred steam, not these diseasel things. He has a soft spot for J15s on Kerry branch lines, Donegal tanks in the Barnesmore Gap, and big Midland 4.4.0s thundering through Knockcroghery........

Yeah there was. 087 had to be sent from Connolly to haul the train back. I believe it got to Connolly just before midnight. 

These things happen, credit to all the volunteers and IE staff in fairness. Hope the RPSI don't get too much of a slap on the wrist for the delayed Rosslare service.

There seems to have been a failure at Greystones..?

Yeah, the staff told us that the boiler pressure dropped too low because the fire died. They also couldn't get 85 into gear, which delayed us further. 087 then came to rescue us, as Railer said. I'd say the RPSI will get quite a hard time from IE though, I think there was about 4 or 5 services severely delayed because of us!

85 was held on the approach to Greystones to allow a down dart to arrive into the station and then proceed into the siding, the down Rosslare was sitting on the other platform, after getting the all clear the crew were unable to get the train moving (the cause is under investigation). While awaiting the arrival of a rescue loco from Connolly another dart arrived into Greystones, this second dart then failed on the platform in Greystones with a brake issue. The down Rosslare that had been sitting in Greystones was then sent back to Bray to allow the rescue loco to get through and rescue the RPSI train.

While that was happening the RPSI crew managed to get the train moving and brought it into the now empty platform. The failed dart was repaired and the departed for Bray.

The up Rosslare then arrived, as did 087. The up Rosslare departed, followed by the DART in the sidings, then down Rosslare then passed through (having previously been sent back to Bray) and then we departed for Connolly.

Arrival back into Connolly at 23.35
