Unofficial A Class names

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,  I'm newly signed up to the forum, though I've been watching from afar for a while!

In anticipation of IRM's amazing A Class project it got me thinking on the subject of names. Back in the early 90s I was lucky enough to blag a cab ride on 013 with a coal and oil train from Tuam to Claremorris, and remember the name 'Vera Lynn' painted in the cab above the windows. A fellow enthusiast once told me that many, if not all, of the class were named like this, and I wonder does anyone else know the names of other locos, particularly those on the IRM production line (I've ordered 056!), or any info on who named them etc?

Cheers!

OO7 or James Bond christened by passengers on an IRRS special.

In the late 1970s a returning Dublin-Youghal  IRRS special was blocked at Thurles by an up passenger that failed at Templemore. 

007 the Thurles pilot loco ran wrong road to Templemore to haul the failed train to Heuston.
