  1. This is all Wiki throws up on the subject: Enterprise has its own unique livery consisting of Dark Grey (NCS 8502-Y), Light Grey (NCS 5502-Y), Dark Green (NCS 9005-G20Y), Bronze strip & Enterprise logos (3M), and either Purple (NCS 5040-R40B) for Standard Class or Dark Red (NCS 4060-R10B) for First Plus. If that's of any help.
  2. Just out of interest, did the drivers also have to put the Reverser into reverse to drive cab forward and vice versa. (select forward to drive bonnet first)?
  3. In the below clip you can see Mk2s with different shade of orange on the same coach and 2 coaches with black window frames.
  4. They regularly ran bonnet first on the Barrack Street branch up until it closed. 134 even rescued a 201 on a freight, I think it was cement. 134 hauled the train with the dead 201 bonnet first, and that was in IE livery.
  5. 7601 is the EGV Carlow now 7104 7122 (the 11th coach) is used as for spare parts and held in Inchicore, still in IE livery. Last time I saw it, it was up on jacks with no bogies in Carriage Shop 2. That was about a year ago. 7104 became Kildare (don't know it's new number). It's the observation coach. 7169 became Wexford now 7102 7171 became Sligo now 7101 7137 became Kerry now 7005 7149 became Down now 7004 7129 became Waterford now 7003 7158 became Leitrim now 7002 7116 became Fermanagh now 7001 7130 became Donegal now 7110
  6. I think only a few got that mod. A few MK3 EGVs were modified so they could work with a Push Pull set without a DVT in hauled mode. I think the above light mod was part of the works.
  7. Typically 8 to 12 depending on use. Right now a rake of 7 is working the DSE line the past week. NIR hired out a rake of 16 in the past year or so. 18 is the max that can work in a rake under the 36 TEU rule exactly like the freight flats.
  8. Also 216 in Belmond livery on loan to NIR along with the wagons.
  9. The GCA Tanktainers are lovey. I asked Aran a few years ago about them and he shipped out 6 to me even though they were not listed on C-Rails site.

    Guinness Keg Wagons

    The wagon to the left being a 47ft, was it common to mix 42s and 47s together on the keg liners?
  11. The Weedspray tanks, Water barrier wagons, Open Containter coal, Open Container beat. Recently there was even a half weedspray tank and half spoil wagon used for brake force on possibly the last Sperry train. That's what can be done but only the weedsprays are planned and left to do for IRM atm.
  12. Apparently it was a metal fatigue defect that was known about from previous exams but the problem accelerated far quicker than expected to the point of failure. I don't know how true that is but it's one of the stories going around.
  13. Makes sense to me at it was one of the 2 last examples running. Paddy Murphy had to do 124 and 134 in IE, no two ways about it. They were an iconic pair. Sure there is 2x 141s in the same livery. As delivered and as preserved condition.

    rpsi B134 loco

    They can do another set with 3 standards no problem. 1514 and 1522 will most likely never happen.
  15. Anyone know what has happened to 224? No one is saying but if all the rumor and reading between the lines she now part of the orange 201 line up in Inchicore.
