Emerald Isle Explorer 2018

Recommended Posts

Hi lads,

Saw this coming into town yesterday at lunchtime, I believe it is heading to Cobh in 30 mins or so, Does anyone have a time for when it departing from Cobh today. Hoping to sneak to the back of the office building to get a shot as she comes into Fota.

Edit Got a reply on the book of faces

EX Cobh: 10.15am Cravens and 10.20 light engine 201 Class back to Cork

Interesting although sad to see the station now from when I was there back in 2003 & 2005 but I see the tradition of having a dumped wagon is being carried on although I don't think the goods yard tracks are connected now!

The Drone is a good way of finding out the roof details.
