I think there are still a small number of GNR and UTA / NIR men alive. Frank Dunlop and Barney McCrory spring to mind.

Would anyone here know of any older drivers who are still about? My grandfather died in active service whilst driving The Enterprise from Belfast to Dublin in 1965. Just wondering if anyone would have known him and also know what happened when he died.

My neighbours father Barney McGirr was a very well known and respected engine driver.

If you let us know your Grandfather's name, I could ask around.

Some of us who timed trains in the 1960s will have the names of the crew in our notes.
